TAFE SA Courses - Vocational Training - Study with us online

Want to grow your business?
Develop your staff!

A recent survey of 4300 workers found that over 70% felt that they weren’t achieving their full potential at work due to lack of development opportunities. Worse yet the cost of losing an employee in their first year can sometimes end up costing three times the person’s salary.

Engaged, productive and efficient employees are what business owners and companies want. It’s no surprise that a Dale Carnegie survey discovered that companies with “engaged employees” outperform those without by up to 202% furthermore 87% of the new and upcoming workforce of millennials say that professional development and career growth are significant to them.

Most importantly according to the Association for Talent Development, companies that offered training programs have 218% higher income per employee than companies without formalised training.
