You probably know how important it is to give staff the training they need to grow professionally and become an essential part of your business. However, let us tell you why you need to add an accounting training provider to your list of resources.
Close any skills gaps
Ensuring that your employees have the right critical knowledge is a must. A modern-day accountant needs to know more than just numbers on spreadsheets. They need to know how data moves through automated systems, how to use analytical techniques, and deliver insights to solve problems.
Develop and retain your staff
With the right training, you can make sure your employees have the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. Offering training can increase staff retention by 30-50%*, by making your employees happier within their role and giving them a more positive view of the company as a whole.
Employees that complete their training can potentially be eligible for promotions and more responsibilities. This can be a great way to formalise personal development within your company, which benefits both staff and the organisation.
Build knowledgeable teams
Create a solid knowledge base and there will be fewer business-damaging mistakes. When employees are trained properly, they have more confidence in their decision making, and can feel more empowered within their role. They’ll also share their knowledge with team members, making the whole team knowledgeable and more confident.
Get the right people the right qualifications
There are many different qualifications available, from beginner accountants to experienced investment specialists. If you have employees who are just starting out, then AAT is an excellent introduction to accounting, and covers the basics of most aspects of accountancy.
For those with more experience, ACCA, ICAEW and CIMA are the next level up, building on a base knowledge, and moving into specialisms such as tax ATT, CTA and auditing IAP.
We also offer a range of qualifications outside accountancy which can be great for employees looking to expand their knowledge and develop outside their current role. We can support you every step of the way with all of these qualifications, and ensure they are delivered with a consistent approach.
