Why invest in your staff training?

Your company is busy, and if your staff members are unavailable and out of the office for hours, let alone days, you’re sure to feel the effects. When deadlines are looming, the idea of staff training may seem like an impossible and expensive challenge, but giving your recruited team the training to improve their knowledge, performance and skill-set, can be a tremendous benefit to your company.

Here are our top five reasons to invest in your staff training.

  1.       Employee Retention

Let’s start with the big one. You’ve hand-picked your team from numerous applicants. You’ve invested in a select group of people, and in return want them to give you their very best at work. By providing staff training opportunities, employees should gain a higher sense of job satisfaction and therefore increase their motivation in the workplace. A valued employee will work harder, have limited knowledge gaps, and combined this will help you reach your overall targets.

  1.       Improve your company’s skillset.

Development and training for your business can help you identify gaps within your team’s skill-set. Instead of employing externally to fill these knowledge gaps, by growing your current team’s abilities you’ll build up a valued set of employees, and reduce costly recruitment bills. For instance, if one of your staff members is fantastic at their role, but needs guidance on report writing, a one-day course can give them the knowledge to excel in all aspects of their role.

  1.       Invest in the safety of your team.

From Health, Safety and Risk Awareness, to Fire Marshalling, training courses can provide the necessary skills required by law in your workplace. Not only are some courses required by governmental law, but having dedicated team members who are well-versed in these topics will improve the overall perception of you as an employer, and help reduce staff turnover.

  1.      Attract new talent.

 We understand that people are the most important asset in your business. When your business grows, you’ll want to attract new, enthusiastic talent and having a history of providing staff training and investing in your staff will present your company in a far better light for prospective candidates.

  1.       Get ahead of industry developments.

Whether you want to stay ahead of new clinical developments with a specialist course, or increase your customer service care to impress potential customers, training courses can help you stay ahead of the game, and step forward from your competitors.

Four Seasons Healthcare Group

We had an urgent need to provide training in Emergency First Aid at Work (EFAW) across our business as a result of the challenges experienced during the first critical months of the COVID-19 pandemic. Knights Absorb worked with us to define a training solution that could be delivered in a ‘Covid-Safe’ manner that would enable us to reach our teams at our target sites within a tight time frame. They trained 277 of our team members across a 6 week period, providing the reassurance we needed to keep our teams and residents safe as well ensuring we were meeting regulatory requirements. The trainers were professional and sensitive to the needs of our homes at all times, and the feedback from everyone who attended the training has been fantastic.

United Response

Knights are now our preferred provider. The quality of training that Knights provides is exceptional. When it comes to Customer Service, Knights excel, in the many years of partnering with multiple companies, Knights are head and shoulders above the rest. Never phased by challenges that clients provide, Knights naturally deal with the issues, assess the need and make the correct decision for the customer. This is not to say they bend over or wilt when challenged, quite the opposite, they seem to scope issues and resolve them efficiently, a customer service ethic that is quite rare. Keep up the good work guys, it is noticed and appreciated.


Knights don’t use generic trainers but find the best trainer for the course and client. The trainers are specialists in their fields and have practitioner experience which I feel is always important when delivering to staff. Trainers discuss our needs before attending training and revise training to meet specific needs.


Knights have personalised courses to meet our learning and development needs. As predominately a learning disability/Autism provider we require trainers and courses that reflect these specific needs and Knights have delivered on this. All courses have met our requirements fully
