Reduce the costs for learning and development
Learning and development overheads are often calculated as between 30% and 50% of salary costs. In some organisations a loss of profit is included, but this makes a more complex calculation
Use SkillStation to allow delivery of learning material to any number of employees at their own pace.
Reduce costs resulting from Health & Safety issues
These cost British employers an estimated £3.3 to £6.5 billion each year of which £910 to £3710 million comes from accidental damage to property and equipment.
The average cost of an accident at work is £46,000 plus additional impact on the business.
Fines on conviction for corporate manslaughter will seldom be less than £500,000 and may be measured in millions of pounds; a level of fine that would previously have been expected only for cases resulting from a major disaster.
It is no longer the case that directors and managers can avoid responsibility by simply delegating responsibility to others. They have to show active involvement in health and safety management.
Use SkillStation to find which employees require training, who has demonstrated competence, and reduce the cost to your business resulting from accidents or incompetence.
