Business Skills Courses and Workshops

All organizations have specific goals and objectives that they strive to meet. Top executives devise strategies and formulate policies to ensure that these objectives are met. But it is the responsibility of each employee in an organization to contribute toward the success of the company hence, more companies are willing to train their employees to keep up with competitive demands. Professional and business related jobs are expected to grow by 30.4 percent and add nearly 5 million new jobs in the next several years. Every department within an organization must stay abreast of the latest technological and industry-specific advances including sales, marketing, human resources, accounting, information technology, management, executive leadership, customer service, and administration.

The nature of the business world has changed fairly substantially in the past decade, and even more dramatically over the past half-century. Technologies are commonplace now that had not really even been imagined only a few decades ago, from personal computers to cloud computing to app-driven smartphones.

As the tools that businesses use have changed, so have the skills necessary to succeed in the workplace. People working in offices must take the time to familiarize themselves with the tools they will be using, as well as discover those that could make them more effective and efficient workers.

At the same time, some skills remain unchanged to a surprising degree, from professional writing standards to office management. These skills remain critical to workplace regardless of what technologies people are using to write up reports and to communicate.

TrainUp can help companies find the business skills training programs they need to ensure their employees understand the basic necessities of office life. These skills can prove critical to essentially any industry, aiding communication both in terms of customer relations and within the office, as well as other basic but crucial interactions.

It is important for individuals in business to understand the big picture of both organizational and consumer behavior, as it impacts everyday decisions and overall how they run a business.

What training is needed for business management?

Employers typically seek to hire individuals with a bachelor's degree in business administration, or business management, for positions in business management at a company. Beyond this, additional training may also be needed. Possible postions held by a business management professional are sales, advertising, operations management, and human resources.

What are basic business skills?

Basic business skills are skills that help you perform essential functions within the business world. These include communication, critical thinking, problem solving, writing, leadership, and negotiation.

What is the difference between soft skills and business skills?

Some business skills are considered to be hard skills, while some are considered soft skills. Hard skills are said to be more measurable and include abilities such as writing, reading, and math. On the other hand, soft skills refer to the abilities that make you a good employee, leader, and coworker. Examples of soft skills are etiquette, communication, and getting along with other people.

What is the difference between managers and supervisors?

In the simplest terms, a manager relies more heavily on his or her people management skills and business strategy skills, while a supervisor is responsible for running the day-to-day work done by the employees, and overseeing that tasks are completed on time. Therefore, a manager has a more strategical role than a supervisor. And a supervisor has more of an objective-driven responsibility in running the daily business operations that are outlined in that strategy.
