With so much for businesses to focus on during the working day, offering employees the time to update their business knowledge during work hours is not always the most practical option.
However, continually training and supporting your staff to reach their potential in the workplace makes for a more rounded employee and better business model as a result.
If you’re looking for a way to get your staff trained up but without sending them out for days at a time on costly courses, here are 3 websites which are worth a look at which can offer your employees extra knowledge through training while on the job, without anyone even having to leave their desk!
Microsoft Office Training
With nearly all businesses using Microsoft applications, the ability for all employees to be proficient with this package is crucial. Microsoft has an online training site where they offer in-depth tutorials on all Office applications, covering everything from Word, Excel, Visio, Publisher, Project, PowerPoint, Live Meeting, Access, Communicator, Outlook and One Note. There’s something for everyone of every level on this website.
