Training and Neglect

"Why don't they train their employees?"

Well, it's because:

  • Training is expensive. [Not really. It is a real bargain compared to ignorance.]
  • They don't have the time. [But they'll find time to clean up messes caused by a lack of training.]
  • They hire people who have been trained. [Unfortunately, much of that training took place over 10 years ago.]
  • They are already very good. [Pray that the competition doesn't make "very good" seem mediocre.]
  • Requesting training may imply inadequacy. [Lawsuits and disasters can do more than imply.]

You wouldn't neglect maintaining your office equipment. Why would you neglect maintaining your employees.
