Education

At Royal Services, we decided to address this issue at the start of 2016 by creating a new Education Board. The management team has identified a list of qualifications that will help the individual as well as allowing our team to better serve our customers. In all walks of life, we need to stay current, learn new skills, be challenged and stimulated, and avoid burn out and stagnation. Educational opportunities play a huge role in this and we are fully embracing this new attitude to develop from within. Qualifications gained so far this year include LEED Green Associate and The OSHA 30.  Employees want to be challenged and feel like they are making a difference as well as progressing in their own careers. Providing an educational opportunity will provide more positive results for your company than simply increasing someone’s wage. Fact!

  1. I 100% agree! I take it upon myself to attend webinars and read industry journals to stay in the know. “Employees want to be challenged and feel like they are making a difference as well as progressing in their own careers.” — that can’t be any more true. I wish every employer thought like this! Thanks for sharing!
