Great trainers play a crucial role in driving employee productivity and enhancing organizational performance. They possess the skills and expertise to empower individuals, foster continuous learning, and create a positive work environment. In fact, studies have consistently shown the significant impact of effective training facilitators on employee engagement, skill development, and overall business outcomes.

The Importance of Great Trainers for Employee Productivity and Organizational Performance:

Boosting Employee Engagement:

Engaging training sessions led by skilled facilitators have been proven to increase employee engagement levels. According to Gallup, engaged employees are 21% more productive and show a 41% reduction in absenteeism. A skilled trainer can create a supportive and stimulating learning environment that encourages active participation and fosters a sense of purpose and motivation among employees.

Enhancing Skill Development:

Organizations thrive when their employees possess the necessary skills to excel in their roles. Effective training facilitators have the ability to identify skill gaps and design targeted programs that address those needs. The Association for Talent Development (ATD) found that companies with comprehensive training programs experience a 218% higher revenue per employee than those without. A competent trainer can equip employees with the knowledge and abilities required to meet evolving business demands.

Improving Employee Retention:

Investing in training and development initiatives not only enhances employee skills but also demonstrates a commitment to their professional growth. According to a study by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), employees who feel valued and have access to development opportunities are more likely to stay with an organization. Skilled trainers play a vital role in creating a learning culture that promotes employee retention and loyalty.

Driving Organizational Performance:

When employees receive effective training, organizations reap the benefits in terms of improved performance and outcomes. The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) found that companies that invest in training yield higher sales per employee, higher gross profit margins, and a 24% higher profit margin than those that don't. By enabling employees to acquire new knowledge, refine skills, and stay up to date with industry trends, great trainers contribute to the overall success of the organization.


In today's rapidly evolving business landscape, the importance of every professional trainer equipping themselves to do more cannot be overstated. The impact of great trainers extends far beyond individual skill development; it directly influences employee engagement, retention, and organizational performance. By embracing continuous learning, refining facilitation skills, and staying abreast of industry trends, trainers can create transformative learning experiences that drive productivity, enhance performance, and foster a culture of growth within their organizations.
potential within each employee. By consistently striving to become A-class training facilitators, we contribute not only to the success of individuals but also to the overall prosperity of organizations. Let us embrace the importance of our role, harness our capabilities, and make a lasting impact on the professional journeys of those we train.
Together, we can shape a future where every employee thrives and organizations achieve greatness. That is one of the reasons why the Association of Professional Facilitators and Trainers (APFTIA) continues to create the right environment for L&D practitioners to continue to develop and evolve for their organisations and clients.
