Richard Branson On How To Train Your Employees

There are of course many reasons to train your employees, Richard Branson shares his wisdom in this article from Entrepreneur magazine.

 “There is always something new to learn. The day you stop learning is the day  you stop living. We should all pick up new skills, ideas, viewpoints and ways of  working every day.

That said, the first goal of any new business is simply to survive — you  need to prove that your business model works. One of the best ways to do this is by hiring excellent people who believe in your company and share your goals, and then by  helping them to learn and improve their skills. This isn’t optional: If your  best people aren’t growing in their careers as your business gains traction and  expands, they will quickly lose enthusiasm for their work. And before you know  it, you’ll be dealing with unsatisfied customers as well as unsatisfied  employees.

Your employees’ desire to learn gives you and other entrepreneurs a competitive advantage over larger companies. Small firms are usually new, so they  attract people who are eager to try fresh approaches and have great ideas about  how to do things differently, rather than employees who are working toward  attaining a specific post or title.”
