The Importance of Training

Continued training in the workplace is important for several reasons. It helps employees stay current with new technologies and industry developments, which can make them more valuable to the organization.

Additionally, training can help employees develop new skills and improve their performance, which can lead to increased productivity and job satisfaction.

Furthermore, providing ongoing training can also show employees that their employer is invested in their development, which can help with employee retention. Additionally, it’s important for organizations to stay compliant with regulations by training employees on the new laws, policies, and procedures that may arise.

Overall, investing in continued training can have a positive impact on both the employees and the organization.

Masters Feedback

Some feedback from one of our class of 2021 in the Masters in Professional Practice

“Since commencing the MA I have grown the Turnover of my business by 21% on the previous year. This included increased margins. Entries into new sectors. New Product development. Significant changes to how I engage with the team in IMS and how we, as a company, operate and view ourselves.

There is an emergent Culture now within IMS. A tangible energy of constant improvement and results.

I could talk to you about it in detail if you were ever interested. But I genuinely attribute it all to not just what I learned throughout the MA, but what I unlocked within and learned about myself.”
