Employees' commitments to craftsmanship, safety, customer
service and winning sales strategies ultimately determine a
business's level of success. And the most effective way to build
employee commitment is to provide employees with proper training
for the skills required to do their jobs.
In the roofing industry, new roof system application
technologies, evolving regulatory standards and language barriers
arising from a diversifying work force have increased the potential
for employees' performances to fail to meet expectations. This can
create performance gaps that can decrease productivity, morale and
company profits. However, effective employee training will help
close those gaps.
Although some roofing contractors believe formal employee
training is cost-prohibitive, there are valid business reasons why
employees should be well-trained.
