Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are the benefits of Workforce Training & Development?

Fortune Magazine found that workplace learning was a common thread in the "100 Best Companies to Work For".

The Consortium for Research on Workplace Intelligence recently concluded that emotional intelligence (collaboration, listening, flexibility, feedback, receptivity, etc.) contribute more toward workplace achievement than technical skills and cognitive ability combined.

The Innovator Newsletter reported a benchmarking study (of more than 200 companies across 16 countries spanning six continents) that concluded innovation & creativity, teamwork, customer service, problem solving, adaptive skills, shared leadership, and communication were the top ten competencies necessary for success over the next five years.

2. I have my own in-house staff to do training, why hire Bayard Management?

SAVE YOUR TIME AND MONEY. It is expensive to develop, administer, and deliver effective training programs. It also is difficult of internal staff to deliver development training due to their relationship in the workplace.  Therefore:

    • Don’t pay for staff to fly off to a seminar, conference, or training when Bayard Management can save you money with in-house or online training.
    • Allow Bayard Management to assess your organization’s needs and design trainings to specifically fit those needs, with measurable results
    • We schedule trainings when convenient for you and your staff
    • We have no limit on the number of staff that can be trained in-house or online, unlike many other companies.
    • We do follow-up work even after the training has been administered to ensure training is transferred into everyday job practices and behaviors.

    3. How does training help my bottom-line?

    Without training, employees will 1) leave 2) perform poorly 3) waste time while at work 4) work unsafely.  Each of these has a direct impact on a company’s bottom-line performance.  Without trained employees, a company’s productivity slips and sales decline.  Not to mention the burden a poorly trained employee places on other staff.  Once you hire someone, you need to train that person.  Even a loyal and committed employee with poor performance, can be trained and become a cost benefit to the company. Training leads to:

    • Increased job satisfaction and morale among employees
    • Increased employee motivation
    • Increased efficiencies in processes, resulting in financial gain
    • Increased capacity to adopt new technologies and methods
    • Increased innovation in strategies and products
    • Reduced employee turnover
    • Enhanced company image, e.g., conducting ethics training
    • Risk management, e.g., training about sexual harassment, diversity training
