Training & Development: Key to success in the FM Industry

Practical training and development session

Among the most important factors for successful administration of facility management is the training & development of the staff. The ideal working environment for any facility manager is a department that can handle any cleaning requirement on time, within budget, and with perfection. Achieving these quality standards needs time and sustained effort.

When it comes to training, there is a common myth that says “once trained is fully trained.” Training is an ongoing and life-long process. Repetitive training is useful in filling in the gaps that might have been missed out the first time around or upskilling your staff with a new set of skills.

Since the scope of Forbes Facility Services and training are extremely broad. The type of training you choose should depend on the core skill, management, and technical competencies you have established; the skill level of your staff; and the needs of the facility. New departments and established operations will require different types of training. For example, a newly formed group may need training that focuses on issues of team building and interpersonal communication skills. Other training may focus on technical areas currently necessary to complete the work of the department.

Industrial Training & Development enables employees to acquire a new set of skills, sharpen the existing ones, perform better at work and increase overall productivity. Since the success of every company is the grand total of what all employees achieve individually, every organization should do everything in their power to ensure that employees perform at their peak.
