In many companies “lifelong learning” has become an integral part of the company and its staff policy. Because further training of employees has many advantages.
Further training is a valuable tool for companies to train their employees according to the company’s needs. Also, further qualified workers contribute to a suitable improvement in productivity or processing quality of a company. Moreover further training has another positive effect: it ties the staff to your company – especially the international workers. Implementation of further training measures may not only promote and support your international staff, but is also a way to demonstrate your confidence in their abilities. This may have a motivating effect, may arouse mutual trust and is a good measure to make workers feel part of your company. By doing so you can keep supporting your international staff and get them involved long-term in the company. Than the familiarization and integration process of international staff is a long-term process which may constantly be pursued. Thus, take your opportunity to secure a qualified and a reliable workforce for the future.
