Leading Through Crisis Part 3: Training

Monday, July 20, 2020

Capturing opportunity and using it to full advantage for your business is key right now.  We are all experiencing tremendous changes in many aspects of our lives at this time.  Training, often overlooked and put on the back burner, is a valuable tool for both stability and growth. 

As you may already know, assessing your business is an essential step to growth and breaking into international markets, but it can also be used as a valuable guide to identify where training is needed in your company.  According to Lalo Solorzano, Director of Global Training Centers, “Training should be a strategic part of your business plan.”  His keen understanding of International Trade and Customs comes from a lifetime in the field.  In our last webinar, he offered some valuable ideas on the subject.

As an example, taking advantage of the many Free Trade Agreements can be challenging.  It can be daunting to understand intricate compliances and logistical procedures.  Training can offer clarity and hand your business the key to taking full advantage of these opportunities.  That equals profits. 

Training addresses many different aspects that can aid the health of your business, and a well-trained staff contributes greatly to your business’ health and success.     

Why is training important?

  • Untrained employees are unproductive employees. This does not necessarily mean that they are not good employees, but they struggle with getting the job done because they do not have the ability or tools to do their work. They are working harder to do what is asked of them.
  • Lack of training can lead to turnover. This is a big problem and many studies have been done by payroll and HR companies whose reports show that the turnover is greater when training is lacking.  This wastes time in hiring someone new and getting them up to speed.
  • Happy employees, happy business.  Your teams are ambassadors of the company. They relay company culture, goals, and mission; and the customers see this.
  • Employee development is crucial for a business.  Growth enables employees to stay with the company. Training cultivates their development and develops a sense of loyalty and purpose.

Boomerang finds a solution! 

During one of the complimentary consultations that boomerang carnets® recently did with a Romanian sportswear company looking to expand to other markets, we advised, with expertise and sincere concern, that they could easily use an ATA Carnet to achieve this end.  We believe in our customers and in what we do and that radiated to such an extent that they got very excited at the prospects for growth an ATA Carnet provides.  So much so, that they shared what they learned with colleagues about how they too could expand into new markets with an ATA Carnet.  A great team radiates confidence and creates new customers. 

The ATA Carnet is one of the tools that can open the door toward taking full advantage of FTAs and assist your company in expansion to new global markets.  The ATA Carnet is an internationally accepted customs document for the temporary import/export of goods.  Its many benefits have assisted companies expand into new global markets with ease and economy.  There could not be a better time to familiarize yourself with ATA Carnets because the benefit it is known best for is the avoidance of import-duty and -tax on your temporarily imported goods and merchandise, saving you money.  Those savings can be used in other areas of your business, training, for example.
