IBGR - RESULTS Radio Network. Everything a business owner needs to start, grow or exit a business. Come grow with us.
Welcome to the first week in August! We are continuing to journey towards your success. I am new to the IBGR Network and I am looking forward to getting to know you and helping you achieve the goals that you have for your business. Small businesses employ 57% of the planet's population and our needs are often overshadowed by the needs of Big Business. We are here to help improve your ability to succeed by focusing on you and your business.
This week we continue the new programming structure. We use a Balanced Scorecard to format our weekday shows: Finance (Monday) = Operations (Tuesday) + Sales (Customers) + People (Employees) with Fridays dedicated to Owners. Look at the week this way - Monday through Thursday is working IN the Present, Friday is working ON the Future.
Also, we just built a new community, our version of a Chamber of Commerce. Join Up and gain access to our Hosts and access our library of best practices.
Have a great business week.
Today’s show is about Formal Training Programs for Job Demands & Career development. Every business has some type of training need from onboarding, specific technical competencies, management, leadership, marketing, sales and or communication. Investments in talent development help to job satisfaction, retention by providing a path for personal and career development. As your company continues to grow or become even more efficient the need for formal training programs will increase. Training programs help to equip your team with the tools that they need to succeed and provide a foundation for future leaders and managers within your organization. To remain competitive in this you must continue to invest in your people.

Effective training programs are crafted considering the values of the organization and the actual needs of your employees. Training for the sake of training will not move you closer to your goals. Training for the sake of training is like random physical exercise which may be beneficial but not as effective as a well thought out training regime. Signal to your employees that you value them by investing in their development. Workplace training is an effective way for organizations to increase productivity. Well-trained employees can be more skilled in their jobs and less likely to make mistakes, resulting in greater efficiency and effectiveness.
