Investment in people

Many charities invest in training their staff and volunteers as it can increase motivation, improve productivity, the quality of work and most importantly Health & Safety in the workplace.

Volunteers and staff who are trained are more likely to have a long-term commitment to their organisation, as well as perform better at work.

Any good organisation will want to promote learning to increase well being for their staff and volunteers. People who have had a positive experience, will become ambassadors for your organisation as they progress upon their chosen career path.
