Training is very important for any business because workers who are well-trained will perform better than workers who are not.  This is particularly true in today’s workplace where there is so much complicated technology that workers must learn to use.

In any job, training is vital.  If a worker is trained, they will be able to do their job much more quickly.  They will not have to take up valuable time trying to figure out what to do in various circumstances.  Instead, they will know what to do because their training will have given them the knowledge they need.  This will increase productivity for the firm because its workers will spend more time doing things to create value and less time trying to figure out what to do.

Training, then, is important because workers who are trained are more productive than those who are not, making them more valuable to the firm.
