Why Invest in ERP Training?
Many companies invest in hard assets – machines, buildings, equipment – when something is essential to their operation. An often forgotten investment is the one in your workforce. Consider investing in ERP training to improve your employee’s knowledge and skills. This will benefit your company. Management may hesitate to invest in ERP training. Benefits are softer than the measurable ROI from capital investments. But ERP training can prove hugely beneficial to both staff and management. It provides skill improvements, employee engagement and job satisfaction. Additionally, many states have programs that incentivize companies to train. This keeps them competitive, prevents them from moving and retains good paying jobs. My home state of Rhode Island, for instance, provides grants for workforce development that are really company friendly. http://www.gwb.ri.gov/
