Better Job Output
The major reasons for lack of motivation at work include lack of faith in one's abilities, fear of failure, low self-esteem, habits such as procrastination and laziness, poor time management, monotony at work, poor rewards, and other factors. Training provides a solution to most of these factors.
The most obvious result of any company sponsored training intervention is skill-enhancement. Training equips the employees with skills to do the work faster and efficiently, and apply themselves to perform jobs more intelligently.Training also help employees develop soft skills such as better time management, better critical thinking ability, better communication skills, and other skills, all of which remain essential traits to succeed in any job. Training thus becomes the basis of effecting performance improvement.The ability of employees to work better increases confidence, removes the fear of failure, and improves self-esteem, all translating to better motivation.
Skill and competency enhancement through training also allows for job enlargement and job enrichment, whereby employees get a broader range of roles and responsibilities and end monotony. All these usually come with better rewards and recognition, both primary motivators.
