Why Small And Medium-Sized Business Owners Need To Fund Staff Training

Far too many small business owners fail to pay for staff training for their employees. A worrying number of medium-sized company bosses follow suit. That is something everyone needs to change across the board, and there are lots of reasons for doing that. Regardless of the nature of your enterprise and what you do to make a profit, the same rules should apply. If you’re unsure as to the benefits of employee training, take a moment to read this post, and you should come away with a much better understanding of the advantages you can expect to encounter.

Staff training saves you money

While there is no getting away from the fact that you will have to make an investment if you want your employees to get an online masters in supply chain management or something similar; you will see a healthy return in the future. Sometimes you have to speculate to accumulate, and paying for training now means you won’t have to hire people with the skills you require who expect a high salary. Instead, you can train unskilled employees and help them to make a more substantial impact on your operation. You will also benefit from the knowledge your team picks up during their courses.

Staff training advances your business

You need to ensure you’re always on the lookout for new ways of doing things that will help you to boost productivity and reduce spending in your small business. When you pay for staff training; your employees will learn lots of new techniques that will put them in a better position to make suggestions for the advancement of your business. So, while the individual will benefit from having some extra qualifications, it is your company that will reap the rewards in the long run. Unless you want to outsource some of the tasks within your operation, educating your employees is the best strategy to follow.

Staff training keeps employees loyal

The last thing you want is for your workers to become disillusioned with your company and seek employment elsewhere. However, that can happen if you don’t take the time to make your team feel valued. An employer who pays for staff training motivates their workers by showing confidence in their abilities. The employee is unlikely to seek alternative means of employment if you show them how much they mean to your business. So, either send your workers to college one day each week, arrange some in-house training, or consider some of the routes you could try.


It should become apparent to anyone reading this post that staff training is vital in the modern business world. New technology and concepts reach the market every day, and so you need to ensure your employees remain at the forefront of the industry. If you don’t keep on top of the latest advancements, there is a reasonable chance a rival firm will steal the lion’s share of the market. So, put a plan in place now, and work out which team members are most likely to benefit from training courses and higher education.

  1. Hi there,

    Are you open to doing sponsored posts or reviews?

    Dealspotr is like LinkedIn for brand / influencer collaborations. It's 100% free for you to join, list your blog in our directory, and explore all the brands we work with (we currently have over 2,000 brands in our marketplace, with over 120 active campaigns right now).

    You'll be paid an up-front fee for each brand you promote, and many campaigns also include a free product. When you join, you'll connect your sites and social accounts - based on your audience reach and engagement metrics, you'll be assigned a per-project fee which you'll be paid upon creating content for each brand you work with. Up-front fees vary depending on your stats, but the core range is between $50 to $500 per promotion for mid-sized influencers.

    We work with hundreds of popular, fast-growing brands like jClub, Eight Sleep, Tailor Brands, Scentbird, and more, and we're signing up a lot of exciting new brands every week.

    You can browse our current live sponsorship opportunities here: https://dealspotr.com/campaigns

    If you register for an account, you'll also receive our weekly newsletter letting you know about new sponsorship opportunities you might be interested in. Registered influencers also get a free listing in our influencer directory, where brands can browse and invite you directly to promote their product.

    How does it work?

    Dealspotr is completely free, and you can browse for paid collaboration opportunities anytime. Running campaigns is easy and similar to other sponsored content you've done.

    - Once you register and connect your social accounts, your Influence Score and fee will be calculated (this usually takes an hour or two).
    - Once your fee is assigned, you can apply to promote any brand. If the brand accepts you, they will send you a free product sample (if provided), and you can learn about the brand firsthand.
    - You'll create content about the brand on your blog, YouTube, or social channels, and submit to the brand for final approval.
    - Once your content is approved, you'll be paid instantly via PayPal with no wait period. You can run as many campaigns at a time as you'd like. One nice thing is that you can include multiple brands into roundup posts, which many influencers like.

    What's Dealspotr?

    We're a popular social shopping site reaching over a million monthly shoppers. We've recently launched the Dealspotr Marketplace as a free, fast, convenient, always-on source of collaboration opportunities for influencers and brands.
