Learning and development: Attracting and retaining talent

When it comes to attracting and retaining talent, this can be often difficult in any business. But with the right Learning and Development strategy, you could easily increase your staff retention rate and attract the best talent to push your business forward.

Attracting and retaining talent

When people look for a new job position, they look at the benefits of the job position. Let’s face it, there can be many organisation’s offering the same position, but the main difference is the benefits that position offers. Making sure you have better benefits than other businesses is important and one of the main benefits you can offer is the best training!

Your staff training and the quality of that training are fundamental in keeping an individual interested. This is because when staff feel more engaged and challenged and are training to be given the skills to grow and develop within their chosen career path, they are more likely to be energised and enjoy their work more. This means they will be more satisfied with their current workplace.

Not only does offering the best training increase sustainable business growth and success. It also engages your employees to provide them with the best opportunities to learn and develop new competencies. Research suggests that lifelong learning in a workplace contributes to happier employees and a happier workplace overall. In addition, regular development initiatives can help keep employees motivated, while frequent training programs will also establish regular re-evaluation of employees, skills, and processes. Assessing the current skills and abilities within a team will enable managers to strategically plan targeted development programs that consider any potential skills gaps.

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

Modus Care

Knights Training are an organisation that are easy to work with, reliable, operate a competitive straight forward pricing structure, offer an impressive range of courses and employ good quality trainers who have expert subject knowledge, certainly an organisation that I would recommend.
