Training on a Shoestring
in not-for-profit Organizations
The keys to training new employees inexpensively are planning, organization, and maximizing existing resources.
These keys to inexpensive trainings are the topics of our next meeting!
Unfortunately, it can be tempting for businesses to skimp on training...after all, training is costly, isn’t it? It takes up valuable resources and messes up the normal office flow. Sparing the time to train a newbie feels like a luxury you can’t afford. So you school your new employee on the fly and hope for the best.
Such tight-fisted training policies can cost you big in the long run - a half-trained employee tends to operate with half-speed efficiency. Still, you can’t afford to halt the workings of your practice for a week or two just because someone new has signed on.

Please join us for our April meeting which will focus on how to make budgets stretch with even more tips!

RSVP’s are requested no later than 3 p.m. on Tuesday, April 10 so lunch may be arranged.
