Sometimes, gold does not become gold until it is made to become one. It is good that we also appreciate human resources in this way. Training human resources in your organisation is a great way to reinvest into that organisation. The better skilled personnel get, the better outcomes they produce and the better for the general welfare of that organisation.

Training refers to a system where employees are instructed and taught matters of technical knowledge related to their jobs. In some organisations, the employees pay for the training, others are partly sponsored by the organisation and others are fully funded by the organisation. Companies spend a lot of money to train their employees but for social impact organisations, the story is slightly different. Trainees of social impact organisations easily get funding for the training of their employees, volunteers and interns, even their founders.

According to, your organisation can also get top-notch training for staff from online platforms like Courseera,, Udemy, Edx, Future learn, AIHR, Association for Talent Development, eCornell, Josh Bersin Academy, Subomi Plumptre, Orifunke Lawal Academy, amongst many others. These trainings can be gotten for free or partially funded by the platforms. Additionally, the progress of your employees can be monitored as it is done online with proper documentation and progress-tracking.

Training Human Resources in your organisation is necessary for the following reasons:

  1. Increase of skills of workers and an inevitable resultant greater productivity and higher output for the overall good of the organisation.
  2. Training your workers helps the reputation of organisation as one rich in HR. This is good especially for organisations that transact on goodwill and reputation.
  3. It enhances the workers’ loyalty to the company or organisation as they would feel that the organisation has invested in them and the way to at least pay back is to be loyal to the company or organisation as it were.
  4. Uniformity of knowledge and procedures. Your workers would understand quite the same procedure of carrying out their jobs. This would become a part of your organisation’s uniqueness.
  5. Lower Supervision. If your organisation was paying extra costs for supervisors, after training, there would be a change in that. The workers would be able to do their jobs with very low supervision or none at all.
  6. Higher Morale for Workers. When people receive value for what they didn’t pay for or paid less than they should have paid, they have some extra motivation to work and be their best.
  7. Industrial safety and reduction of wastage. Trainings reduces chances of costly mistakes and accidents arising from ignorance. Training reduces ignorance and enlightens the workers..

Some trainings can be off-seat and done out of work for a while so it is important to schedule these trainings via a rotation so as not to jeopardise the welfare of the company as a result of the trainings.
