Workplace Development Solutions to claim back your profits
If you could remove an expense eating 85% of your profits, would you? “When Balfour Beatty were looking for a partner to assist in vocational education for our workforce, The Bremer Institute of TAFE stood out from the rest.” Sue Broughton, Training and Development Advisor, Power Transmission, Balfour Beatty United Group Limited.
In a Mercer HR study from March 2010, costs associated with staff attrition represent 10% of total revenues. In today’s market as in every market, every dollar counts to improve the bottom line.
If you could do something to reduce or stop the 59% of your staff looking for another job, would you? An OfficeTeam 2010 survey stated 59% of administrative workers were looking for an alternative position. Every time someone leaves, the business suffers through rehiring costs and missed opportunities.
If you could find a way to keep your staff during the skills shortage instead of having to rehire with higher wages, would you? 63% of admin workers in the same OfficeTeam survey stated that workforce development would stop them looking for other job opportunities and improve their effectiveness at work. Talk to us about solutions that improve your bottom line by keeping your staff productive and engaged.
