Education = Value

Today, many operations are struggling to be unique. However, they are using the same tools, equipment, chemicals, and supplies as everyone else. Let us ask an important question:
“Why are you not spending an equal amount educating and training your team as you do on purchasing such routine items?”
You might answer in response: “We can’t afford to spend that kind of money training people; they don’t stay long enough for it to pay off.”
If this is the way your operation perceives of training, then you have a different issue that will be important to resolve in order to move forward.
