Why have a company training program?
As a professional working in the roofing industry, you can grow your business and increase your company’s profitability by expanding and enhancing your workforce. With the prospect of workforce shortages continuing in the roofing industry, you need to ensure you are maximizing the productivity of every employee. By offering exceptional worker training to new hires and midcareer workers, you will help retain existing employees and attract new ones.
Training is a critical component of improving employee quality and productivity. Not only will your new hires be up and running faster, but they also will know you are investing in their futures, so they can enjoy a successful career with your company and in the roofing industry.
The benefits of having a company training program include:
- Formalized curriculum will enable your new employees to be productive faster.
- Implementing standardized best practices means less installation problems and callbacks.
- Increased productivity results in consistency of installation and completing more jobs using your existing workforce.
- Career enhancement provides current, experienced employees the opportunity to learn another roofing discipline(s).
All these things lead to lower costs, higher revenue and improved profitability for your company.
To help your trainers improve their training skills and become more effective, NRCA has developed a Qualified Trainer Conference, a state-of-the-art, three-day classroom and hands-on educational program that gives them the tools they need to be exceptional trainers.
