Why invest in employee training during an economic downturn?
During an economic downturn, many companies choose to reduce staff as a way to cut operational costs. This usually means a couple of things:
- A loss of net knowledge which must be replaced by the remaining employees
- The smaller employee base is required to perform the same outputs or deliverables
There can be an added pressure on these employees, especially if there are additional job requirements (i.e., skills they don't possess).
Engaging employees in training and development can be an effective counterattack to the low morale of employees during a recession; when they worry most about job security. Employees gain intrinsic job satisfaction when their employer invests in their development.
