“Soft” training benefits bottom line, survey finds

Leadership,
teambuilding and time management training can improve business productivity
despite their “soft” images, according to research by learning solutions
provider FranklinCovey Europe.

Three-quarters
of managers who provide this type of training claim that more than half of
employees change their behaviour as a result, and 64 per cent claim that these
changes directly benefit the company.

More
than eight out of 10 managers feel that behavioural training improves
productivity as much as other training courses, if not more.

The
research is based on a survey of 200 HR directors and managers in UK companies
with a turnover of more than £10m.

The
survey also shows that 57 per cent of managers offer their staff behavioural
training.

“This
data seems to show that behavioural training can bring major benefits to an
organisation, but that many are still missing out on these benefits,” said Matt
Smith, head of training at FranklinCovey.
