The importance of training is often given short shrift in the industry when it is in fact a vitally important profit center for the business. A well-trained employee gets the job done better, faster, and cares more. An employee that has been well trained appreciates the fact that the company cares enough to invest in educating him or her. This in turn usually leads to the employee liking the equipment they’ve been trained on more and caring more about plant processes. Consequently, the trained employee does his or her job much better. Another resulting benefit is that the equipment is much better cared for. A case in point is laser alignment training.
