Providing training for staff is critical to a business’ success and can help improve employee retention. In some industries training and qualifications are mandatory and therefore helping your staff achieve them can help boost your company’s reputation and staff retention.
Furthermore, as a result of the pandemic many businesses have adopted a hybrid working model, making training rooms more popular as they can hold larger numbers of people, are affordable to rent for a day or so and aren’t needed very regularly.
