When it comes to cutting corners, you’d probably prefer to do more in-house so that you spend less. It makes sense, doesn’t it?
Most of the time, yes. If you have the resources within your company to, for example, create a brochure for your company, by all means, do it in-house. But when it comes to training new hires — especially in the air transportation industry — keeping it in-house isn’t always the smartest (or the cheapest) way to go. Not convinced yet? Read on to find out why you’re not as well-positioned to train your staff as you think.
1. Training Isn’t Your Specialty
Whether you’re running an airport or a corporation that happens to have a corporate jet (or two or three), training your staff on all the complex aviation regulations and procedures isn’t your strong suit. And if it’s not your strength, you have no business doing it. Leave it to HR training professionals who are well-versed in TSA regulations and compliance to ensure your staff is appropriately trained.
2. You’re Risk-Averse
And what company in the air transportation isn’t? The better trained your staff is, the more you mitigate your company risk. Consider employee training like insurance: the better trained your staff is for any situation that could arise, the fewer incidents you will have. That translates to not only better safety for your staff and passengers, but also cost savings.
3. You’re Not an Expert in Air Transportation
You’re an HR manager. Or executive. How well-versed are you on the latest TSA news? Outsourcing your employee training puts your new hires in front of veterans in the air transportation industry: experts who have been in their shoes, and who can ensure they’re getting the best training possible. Sometimes that means that more than one subject-matter expert is needed to provide well-rounded training for your staff. You won’t find that in-house.
4. In-House Training is Costly
If you assume it would cost more to bring a third party in to train your staff, consider the costs (both time and fiscal) involved in setting up a successful training program in-house:
Producing training materials
Ensuring training materials are constantly updated to the latest TSA regulations
Accounting for time spent away from your typical responsibilities
Because HR training companies are tapped into the latest TSA updates, their programs are always cutting-edge. And because they deliver the same training to multiple airports and corporate jet companies, you pay less for the training.
More Than Just Training
When you work with an HR compliance company like NATA Compliance Services, you get access to more than just employee training. You can bundle services like background checks, drug and alcohol testing, and fingerprinting to ensure that you’re providing the very best human resources services possible for your staff.
