Given the current financial landscape, training and developing your staff has never been more important. Every industry is undergoing constant change and your staff need to be up-to-date with the latest trends and developments so that your business can keep up with the market. Training your staff in transferable skills such as finance, leadership and general management will not only make them more efficient, but also mean that they can share these new skills with other employees, ultimately saving you time and money.
Staff training allows employees to recognise their own weaknesses, meaning that they are more likely to want to work to overcome these and become more well-rounded staff members.
Investing in training and developing your staff will improve their engagement levels and make them more likely to want to stay with your company – in fact a recent study found that 93% of those questioned would stay longer with an organisation that invests in their development. And of course training your staff means that you will have a better informed, more productive workforce, which will pay dividends in both the short and long term. Hiring new employees, while it is an exciting time, can also be a hectic time as you work to get them set up and productive as quickly as possible…and then of course there is teaching them to use your software programs. If you have a new hires, train them as a team, even if they are going to be in different areas of the company.

In the face of reduced budgets and competing priorities, training can easily be neglected, but finding effective training and development solutions for your staff can ultimately save you money and help you to meet your business needs. If you’d like to get started with organising your staff training or if you’d like to arrange a free training needs analysis, The MBA Training Company is here to help.
We offer training courses covering the most important disciplines and markets, and I am interested in blogging on and hearing about an equally wide range of subjects, as well as anything to do with training and personal development.
Training new employees to use your Epicor ERP system, or any ERP system for that matter, is easier said than done.
This could take the form of embedded education, classroom training, a series of webinar, online training, etc. Plenty of companies try and get new employees to do training during lunch, on breaks, or after hours. This will help the new employees get to know some people in the company and understand how they’re actions in the system affect other parts of the organization.
It’s going to be hard enough for your new employees to learn the system, so don’t make them learn with data that does not represent their jobs. Here are five suggestions to help you get your employees trained quickly but also to ensure they are fully grasping the information and ready to use it on the job.


While I am sure your new employees are excited about their new position and equally as excited to contribute to the company’s success, infringing on their personal time will create resentment and resistance to the training. Even if your new hires have experience with your ERP system from past positions, they still need to acclimate to your organization and data. Using your company’s data in the training programs will allow users to get comfortable with real-life scenarios and information they will face in their day-to-day lives which will help them to hit the ground running in the live system.
Over time people forget the things they once knew, even if you could at some point solve that equation in your sleep, since you have not recently reviewed how to, this is an entirely impossible task!
Again, this could be embedded education, virtual classes, classroom training, and in some cases, as is the case for Epicor ERP system users, an annual user conference. Aside from annual training it is also important to train employees with each new upgrade to ensure the new functionality is understood and employees know how to use it so the company can reap the benefits.
