The Benefits of Rewarding Training

The Benefits of Rewarding Training

by on February 21, 2023

All professionals, from engineers to healthcare workers, from IT specialists to teaching assistants, have to undertake regular training. 

It’s important to the financial health and productivity of an organisation, leading to higher quality work and longer-term commitment from employees, but it’s equally important in terms of personal development for the individual concerned. 

Here, we look at the benefits of training, and learn how Payme can help your professional and personal progress.


Why undertake training? 

Professionals from all sectors undertake Continuing Professional Development (CPD) training to build their career and enhance their professionalism. 

In most professions, it’s a requirement to keep those involved at the top of their game, but it can also enhance them personally. Learning and development will help employees take the next step, as well as giving them an advantage over their peers in terms of career advancement and promotion.


The benefits of training include:

  • Ensuring your professional knowledge is up-to-date – changes in the law and regulations around working practices mean it’s vital that you keep on top of what’s required of you in your profession
  • The opportunities to learn new skills, whatever stage of your career you’re at, which will not only contribute towards your organisation’s success, but also enhance your professional reputation and add towards your CV
  • Increasing self-confidence in your own skills and abilities, helping you approach both work and life in general with optimism and self-belief
  • Demonstrating to colleagues and potential future employers that you have a ‘growth mindset’ and a determination to reach your career goals
  • The potential to effect positive change within your organisation and in your wider community.
