Do Employers Need To Offer New Hire Training?

Last week Business Insider posed an interesting question – do employers need to offer new hire training?

While it’s fairly obvious that new hires will need some sort of onboarding as they begin their new careers, there’s no hard and fast rule as to how much training is required, and whether or not it should encompass all aspects of the employees position – including specialized training for their role – or just a high-level overview of the basic information they’ll need to get by on a day-to-day basis.

Employee Training

Morgan Norman, the CEO of WorkSimple, responded that “some sort of training program is essential for all companies. These programs will vary mainly on the type of organization and the resources they have to provide for training. Smaller organizations will no doubt have more personalized and less extensive programs, as they do not have corporate budgets to spend on training. However, it is still imperative that they develop a program that allows new hires the right direction and knowledge to become contributing team members.”

It’s entirely possible that your organization may decide that an entire division needs training on new software, technology, or processes, or perhaps they’re interested in providing just a few employees with specialized education that could lead towards certification or a degree. Whichever path your organization chooses, the Center for Technology and Industry (CTI) at New England Institute of Technology can help.

With CTI, your organization can customize a program with our instructors that will ensure your employees – whether they’re new hires or seasoned vets – are up-to-date on the latest technologies, techniques, and best practices for your specific organization and industry wide.

For more information on how CTI can help your company provide customized, hands-on training for your employees, please call us at (401) 739-5000.
