Ninety-four percent of employees are more likely to stay at a company that invests in their learning and professional development*. With hiring and training processes taking up valuable time and money, employee retention can make or break a business. Providing employees with opportunities to update and upgrade their skills is an effective strategy to decrease turnover and increase your team's productivity. Not only does corporate training make employees more likely to stay at a company long-term, but it will also help them to excel at their individual responsibilities and contribute to the company's overall success.
While the training required to support employees and keep them up to date in their fields varies, the need for flexible group training options does not. Continuing Studies at the University of Victoria offers customized training opportunities to fit any company or department's needs. Whether you're looking for a one-day workshop on teamwork in a hybrid work environment or a micro-credential to bring your team's administrative technology up to date, Continuing Studies can create a customized program to fit your needs, budget and timeframe.
"Typically, leaders know what they need but not how to get there," says Dr. Jo-Anne Clarke, dean of Continuing Studies at UVic. "We've already developed training content for many in-demand skills ... Our team will work collaboratively with the client to adapt that content or design something new that fits with their organizational goals."
