31 Jul Small and Medium Sized Businesses can now afford Employee Training and Development with Cudoo

Employee training and development is an expensive investment which SME’s are unable to afford and Cudoo aims to change that.

CUPERTINO, Calif.July 31, 2016 — Once thought of as an unnecessary concept, employee training and development is now viewed as the solution to the high and far-reaching costs of employee turnover. Not only do businesses run the risk of losing valuable years of knowledge, experience and productivity when employees leave, they also end up spending a large amount of time searching for and recruiting the right replacement and getting them up to speed with the way the company works as well as the specific duties which they must carry out. The recruitment period forces the rest of the employees to pick up the slack of their departing colleagues and work longer hours, thus lowering the morale within the company.

To show the effects of poor training and development, an article by Go2HR mentions that “a recent survey indicates that 40 percent of employees who receive poor job training leave their positions within the first year. They cite the lack of skills training and development as the principal reason for moving on.” The rate of turnover, as high as the one mentioned, is one that very few, large businesses can afford, let alone the small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Furthermore, the comparative affordability of employee training and long-term benefits of better satisfied and more productive employees does not eliminate the real-dollar costs of employee training; costs which often deter SMEs from investing in their employees.

Sue Brett, CEO of learningonline.xyz commented, “With Cudoo we have developed a platform through which SMEs could provide training options for their staff and remain thriving contenders in their highly competitive industries.
