Business skills are essential to keeping an organization running smoothly – and making money.
Every organization—from a locally owned retail shop to a nonprofit to a Fortune 500—revolves around money: making money, borrowing money, managing money. This means that no matter where an individual eventually works, business skills are likely to play a very important role.
Unquestionably, the business skills level of your workforce has a direct and measurable impact on the efficiency and profitability of your organization.
Recent research has shown that organizations could be losing thousands of dollars a year (or more) due to poor business skills among their group leaders. Smaller employers could be losing as much as $115,000 per year; larger employers up to $700,000 per year.
Additionally, business skills help professionals understand both the internal and external factors that impact an organization’s success, as well as the processes involved in carrying out business goals.
The skills needed to be successful in business include soft skills, such as leadership and communication, as well as hard or technical skills like financial accounting.
Business skills are especially important for entrepreneurs, leaders, and managers, but a firm understanding of business essentials can benefit professionals in any industry.
It’s little wonder why so many organizations turn to professional business skills training. Key advantages of business skills training include:
- increasing profits
- improving performance
- improving accuracy and quality
- improving communication
- complying with regulations
- improving recruitment
- retaining staff
- developing good customer relations
- improving morale, motivation and job satisfaction
