Employee training is by no means the preserve of large companies with sizeable employee development budgets, it has been claimed.
According to Business Link, learning for most employees comes from informal on-the-job training.
"Even the smallest businesses with no training budget can carry out in-house training," the advisory service noted.
Among the different types of training include job shadowing, coaching, mentoring and passing-on training.
This is where one employee goes on a course and then passes the knowledge on to their colleagues when they return to work.
But in order to ensure employees receive the training they need – formal or informal – it can be beneficial to create an appropriate environment for learning.
And for many companies, this may involve the use of specialist training rooms, fully equipped to support the learning and staff development process.
