Another Christmas will soon be upon us, and what a holiday it is! Whether you’re jetting off or looking forward to a rest from work, the holidays offer something for everyone. The Christmas statistics are quite something as well. Did you know that during the festive period, Brits will spend £19 billion on over 1.1 billion presents for 462 million people? Furthermore, the average person buys 22 gifts for nine different people spending around £379 for presents alone!
If your presence is the present you give to your loved ones, you are not alone. UK residents travel around 5.6 billion miles to visit friends and family over the Christmas season. The team at Basis Training will also be doing our fair share of travelling home for Christmas. We will be jetting 4360 miles from Qatar, back to Wales. We are currently in Qatar running Train the Trainer Course for a hospital group (you can read more about our trip here). Soon, we will be flying home for Christmas and looking forward to a short break before we begin to rev up for training in 2020!
The Christmas Gift Of Training
If you’re looking for a way to thank your staff for all their efforts over the past year, then the gift of training in 2020 is a great way to go. We are seeing a significant rise in the number of clients looking for Train the Trainers courses, and this is something that can hugely benefit your staff too.
With Train the Trainers, your business will benefit from having an in-house team of qualified trainers. These trainers can help to extend training throughout your whole organisation and quickly get new starters up to speed too.
Your employees will see a considerable benefit from becoming a trainer, such as;
- Broader knowledge to become a Subject Matter Expert
- Increased confidence
- Further presenting and training skills
- Transferable skills.
What’s more, your business will benefit from;
- Reduced training costs
- Increased employee retention and staff happiness levels
- A safer organisation with fewer personal safety risks
- Highly targeted and reusable training.
So, if you want to deliver a Christmas cracker that will boost employee morale and get 2020 off with a bang, then why not book your employees on a Train the Trainer course? At Basis Training, we travel across the UK delivering bespoke training at a place to suit your business. However, you’ll need to book soon, our calendar for 2020 is quickly filling up. Simply get in touch, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.
The whole team at Basis Training wish you a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!
