How Much Support Does Your Employee Training System Need?

Ezekiel 25:17 “The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.”

The way I see it, the work of the construction professional is beset on all sides by the inequities of the Client and the tyranny of governing legislation.

The truth is Clients can be ruthless. Liquidated damages, open-ended contracts, intentional loopholes — all potential inequities that make the construction business harsh and unforgiving. Misinterpret a contract, and you lose.

Complying with governing legislation can also seem like a burden. But, if you think employee training is expensive, consider project losses and the fines levied when an employee messes up. In Alberta last year, OHS fines amounted to $2,243,075.00. When a worker gets hurt, and you can’t prove “reasonably practicable”, you’re paying both a fine and increased insurance premiums.

Everyday, your bottom line is at risk! A technology-based solution like Online Training can streamline your overhead costs, ensuring employees are efficiently prepared for the jobsite.

Lowering the business-side of training costs

How do you feel about shaving an extra $100k off your fixed costs? Companies with workforces of 2000 or less have observed savings in excess of $98,000 — coming directly out of overhead.

Have you considered the costs of a new-hire orientation? Have you multiplied that for the number of new-hires you train over a year? Let’s do a quick breakdown of the costs for face-to-face in-house training.
