Do you remember the first time you rode a bike? With your knee pads and helmet securely strapped on, you get on the bike – but now what? You have everything you need in front of you, but no proper training to get you from Point A to Point B. No training wheels to ease you into this new venture. No one holding onto the handlebars to make sure you’re stable. Sure, you’ve seen others ride past you on the street, but is that enough to keep you balanced, moving, and confident?

Without proper training, how are you supposed to grow?

In a study performed by Workplace Intelligence, 83% of surveyed employees revealed improving their skills is a top priority and 8 out of 10 employees said it’s important for their employer to offer these benefits. Learning and development opportunities are vital to the success of employees, which is why SHI has partnered with Microsoft to prioritize training and growth for employees and customers alike.

Gain a competitive edge

In today’s changing technological landscape, it’s important for your organization to offer training – not only to improve employee performance, but also to increase engagement, improve employee retention and growth, and address internal weaknesses. Providing employees with proper training positions them to positively impact your business.

Over the last ten years, Microsoft’s chat solution has evolved from Office Communication Server to Lync to Skype for Business to Teams – and that’s just one product’s advancements. Developing your employees’ skills to keep up with today’s cloud-based digital technologies is imperative to the successful adoption and consumption of Microsoft products.
