Do Your Suppliers Offer Training?


As well as attending a training seminar or conference in order to develop skills for use back in the workplace, another often overlooked place to find training is from your suppliers themselves. Whilst they may not offer accredited qualifications or training on general topics such as management skills or health and safety, what they may offer is courses or workshops on how to get the most out of their products. This is more likely when those products are highly complex, with examples including complicated computer design software or large pieces of machinery with numerous parts and extensive operating procedures and processes.

The producers of these items will have detailed knowledge of them and should know everything there is to know about them. They will therefore be able to teach your employees how to get the best out of the equipment and how to use them for optimal performance and productivity. This will obviously be highly beneficial for your company and the achievement of its goals.

Even if the suppliers do not advertise or promote training in their products, it may be the case that this can be arranged on request. Whilst it may require a large amount of money to persuade the company to take one or more of its employees away from their normal work duties in order to perform the training, this may prove an extremely wise investment, particularly over the long term, if it results in greater productivity, efficiency, output and, ultimately, higher levels of revenue and profit.
