More of America’s major corporations are now outsourcing staff trainers to reduce operating costs and maintain profitability during the economic slowdown. In fact, some of the largest companies are actively reducing the number of staff trainers on payroll and are negotiating for contract trainer solutions and rates. In today’s uncertain times, the largest corporations cannot afford to retain expensive staff trainers with low classroom utilization time.
Why Outsource Staff Trainers
Industry and government studies prove that outsourcing is a key strategy to help companies reduce operating costs and increase profitability. Outsourcing growth has exceeded all market expectations in the last 10 years for one reason: it pays good dividends in revenue and profit! Companies who realized the true total costs of their various business operations, outsourced non-core staff and competencies to volume staffing specialists. By not paying for more staff than they needed, outsourcing freed up financial resources and enabled managers to refocus on marketing to their clients, business development and managing the business to make it more profitable.
Add up all your direct and indirect staff trainer costs – compensation, benefits, training, recruiting, managing, holidays, sick time, conferences, travel, etc., etc., to define your total trainer cost and be prepared for sticker shock. When you compare actual time in the classroom vs. non-classroom time, the high cost differentials will become apparent. Contract trainers and all the benefits of using them, are the best solution to reduce high business operations costs.
