The Importance of Employee Training: 6 Reasons Why It Saves You Money is a great article from Business2Community that demonstrates the importance of training. It not only helps your employees, but your overall company. A great quote from the article which brings home the importance of training is: "If you were given the choice between two different pilots—one was trained, the other not—which one would you choose?
