Does your company provide purchasing training in-house to your employees?

Has your company consided hiring an outside training firm to augment the in-house training currently provided to your employees?

Does your firm offer purchasing training in the first place?

If you answered "no" to any of these questions, this may be eye opening. According to a study commissioned by the American Society for Training and Development, firms that invest in out-sourced training programs for their employees realize 218% higher gross income per employee than firms that rely solely on in-house programs.

In addition, companies that utilize no training whatsoever are estimated to grow at a rate three times slower than that of firms that make training a priority.

According to the information management firm, Avatech, in-house training costs up to 73% more than outsourced or consultation-based training companies. One reason is immediately evident.

On-staff trainers are more expensive in terms of salary and benefits, whereas outside training companies tend to be fee-based.

BEST, Inc. is one of those firms. Call today and hear what an out-sourced education and training firm can do for you.
