    Training needs analysis in action

    Your training needs analysis session is all about thinking outside the box.

    About identifying opportunities across your entire business, not just where you have an immediate need.

    Hotels are often seeking new recruits to beef up their kitchens or expand their customer service teams. In addition to identifying suitable hires, B&FC has helped hospitality businesses to upskill their staff with specific qualifications to boost wider retention and morale.

    By putting your staff on to courses you are showing you value their commitment which in turn boost retention by shifting employees' mindset from 'short-term job' to 'long-term career'.

    If you're thinking about hiring people to offer a new kind of service, or expand your existing offering, it's also a great idea to be thinking how to promote it.

    B&FC has helped businesses hire digital marketing apprentices - or upskill existing staff through an apprenticeship to expertly assume that role - when the original thinking was simply on the service itself.

    If you're rapidly expanding in the manufacturing and engineering sectors, you might be seeing some opportunities to improve your productivity.

    If you need specialists to expand your operations, who will cope with their team's growing demands? B&FC has worked with organisations which have significantly benefited from warehousing apprenticeships so that the business is staffed throughout its operations to optimise efficiency and manage changing requirements.

    But every situation is different. To talk about yours, and take advantage of our free training needs analysis, get in touch.

    How do I get started?

    There’s never been a better time to upskill your employees.

    Many of our courses are either funded or subsidised – all you need to do is reap the rewards.
