The paper reviews the studies that suggest that quality training should remain a top priority for businesses since employee benefits result in organizational benefits. The paper shows how effective training does not have to be too costly and looks at the various techniques companies can use to gain a competitive edge and maximize the effectiveness of the training. The paper points out that businesses will not get the results they seek unless the entire company fosters and maintains a sense of ethical responsibility, and, training experts continue to stress the importance of reinforcing training by following-up with employees on a regular basis and offering "refresher" and advancement programs. The paper concludes that as technology rapidly advances, information security risks increase, and jobs overall get more complicated, effectively training employees takes on even greater importance.

From the Paper:

"In 2006, Patrick Owens, Jr. conducted a study that revealed useful results about the ways in which training benefits an organization (Owens). For example, positive variables bolstered by increased and more effective training included: job satisfaction, "organizational commitment" and lower turnover rates, improved performance, and an increased sense of "organizational justice" (Owens). While it may seem obvious that improved training would ultimately increase profits, there has been scant research detailing the nature of that phenomenon; therefore, Owens' study is important and relevant (Owens).
"In her 1995 article on the training practices at Las Vegas' Mirage Resorts, Dawn Anfuso discusses the ways in which Mirage's approach garners the business a competitive edge. As she states, although Mirage is geared toward making work fun for employees, the company also maintains a sharp focus on training: "Training is a business priority...even before the new casino/hotels were built, [the manager] learned in his research...just how important training is to a successful opening" (Anfuso, Las Vegas Resort Bets on Training - and Wins). The Mirage spent nearly $7 million on training before opening two new hotels, and continues to spend roughly $8 million per year on corporate-wide training (Anfuso, Las Vegas Resort Bets on Training - and Wins)."
