How to Get Management to Fund Metrology Training
Quality control processes have become established company standard across many manufacturing organizations around the world. When it comes to outsourcing metrology services, or purchasing quality control equipment for your metrology lab, it’s a pretty easy sell to management. Training employees; however, can be a tough sell and very difficult to justify. Why should management invest in training their employees when they are doing a fine job in their day-to-day tasks? Quality control requirements are being met and parts are getting out the door. What more could management expect from their employees? Why spend the extra money?
Here are the TOP FOUR REASONS why your management needs to start investing in your metrology training and certification now.
A Well Trained Employee is a Productive Employee
When you start proactively building a platform of learning, development, and high performance initiatives, you reap the benefits of productive employees. By investing in educational advancement opportunities for your employees, you provide an enhanced performance environment where everyone feels they have tools to succeed. Offering employees the resources they need to increase their responsibilities, goals, and objectives significantly increases job performance levels, not to mention the quality your customers receive.
Customer Satisfaction Increases ROI
Combining highly engaged management-employee communication, training, education advancements, and development opportunities creates a positive morale among employees. This plays a huge role in increasing their productivity, customer relations, and overall dedication and work ethic within your company. Watch as your customers start to feel the increased quality radiating through to their end, and it’s a win-win.
Training Affects Your Bottom Line
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the correlation between high engagement and employee satisfaction. Companies that offer positive reinforcement and overall appreciation for their employees can guarantee a more positive work environment along with more productive employees, increasing company morale. Highly engaged employees work harder, they tend to stick around, they represent the company better, and have a higher deliverable to the customer, ultimately affecting your bottom line.
Certification Leads to Credibility
Once you’ve taken that step to invest in your employees’ training initiatives you will quickly see the results company wide. From employee attitudes to customer satisfaction, and ultimately your bottom line ROI. The next step is to create a standard within your quality control department to get all your employees certified in the field of metrology. Metrology training is extremely important, but metrology certification creates a credibility that your customers will not only appreciate, but will keep coming back because of the obvious standards you set against your competitors.
