Vocational training is provided for most companies. When I worked for the production company, it was part of the recruitment process to train a new employee of the company in general and the equipment that would be used most often. The benefits of training in this regard are many, with government regulatory compliance usually high on the list. Another reason companies train is due to agency specific systems, processes or software. There is no way to do the job required without blame someone for that particular system
What about other areas of training -. Such leadership, knowledge or team building? Called human capital management, these areas are often over the budget rather quickly in tight economic times. It may seem that HVS materials are only perks and easily forgo short-term budget planning. However, this decision could cost the company more money in the long run.

An article by Jim Mahone and Chuck Bokor called “meta Leadership Training :. The economic impact and return on investment, “the impact leadership training is quantitatively analyzed with two different courses in two different industries. Their results yielded nearly 15 percent return when comparing the cost of initial training to increase the impact of the organization, as well as a forecast 179-to-1 return on the benefit-cost ratio. Think about how much 179 to 1 return would affect their business.
“The reason these percentages are so high can be explained by the fact that the leadership training develops the ability to individuals to deal with all kinds of situations, “the paper claimed.” The benefits of making the right decision for individuals in senior leadership positions may be enormous, but the cost of making the wrong decision can also have a significant impact. “

Leaders must have business knowledge and acumen to affect the company’s bottom line as well as constantly learning better decision-making skills so they can have the confidence to deal under what circumstances or choices that arise.
