I just heard another common excuse for not training…
We are waiting until things pick up before we start employee training.
Believe it or not, slow times are the optimal time to start your employee training initiative. These are great opportunities to get your current employees up to speed, and prepare them for the next increase in production.
This is especially true if you hire temporary employees since you will rely heavily on your current employees to being new and temporary hires up to speed when things get busy.
