The Importance of Training in the Workplace

Why is Training Important?

The importance of training employees is increasing. HR teams are under more pressure to ensure the workforce is trained, motivated and challenged. The training available to employees not only keeps ideas fresh and CPD up to date; it is also a way in which to attract and retain talent. As AI in the workplace rises, it will become more important still.

Luca Signoretti, Networking for Leaders

Career Star Group recently hosted our annual sales conference in Malaga, Spain. Our members from across the globe flew in to spend a few precious days together. At every conference we host or attend with members, the energy is high; the passion unrivalled to any organisation and the outcome is always an alliance that is closely aligned and more enthusiastic than ever.

This year, training was a high priority, as we understand how important it is to continue to develop talent, prepare for new trends and strategically plan. We wanted to give members of Career Star Group skills they could apply in their daily working lives. We welcomed two incredible trainers – Dan Johnston, from Tack TMI and Luca Signoretti, from Networking for Leaders.


Dan Johnston, Social Selling Trainer at Tack TMIBoth trainers provided new perspectives, increased knowledge and confidence and allowed us to develop as a team stronger than ever.

According to a report from Gartner,

‘As organizations increasingly tackle automation and digitalization, the skills and competencies required for success constantly change. Accordingly, 66% of CHROs and 86% of HR technology leaders say that building critical skills and competencies is a top priority for 2020 — and addressing skills gaps is considered key to growing the business.’

As AI becomes more prominent in the workplace, training will play a more important role than ever before. Job roles, which once belonged to humans, may become redundant. AI can often provide organisations with more cost and time-effective solutions. To retain talent, training must be provided to ensure gaps within an organisation are filled, and/or to continue to produce effective results. Strategic planning by HR leaders is extremely important.
