Ways Advanced Microsoft Excel Training will improve your Business

Feb 11, 2020 | Blog, Service |

The most important resource for any company is human resource. People who work for you will either make or break your business. Since humans are complex, emotional beings with different personalities and needs, having the prowess of meeting your employee’s needs is extremely important. One way to do that is by paying for Advanced Microsoft Excel Training for your staff. This not only motivates employees but also creates loyalty and commitment among your staff. Losing staff to competitors and constantly having to on board fresh talent is costly and time wasting.

Microsoft Excel is one of those applications that once you unlock, will leave you mesmerised at the number of things you can do. It cuts across departments in terms of relevance and will help you organise, calculate and evaluate data that will in turn lead to sound decision making for your business.

Below are some reasons you should consider paying for Advanced Microsoft Excel Training for your employees and how it will take your business to the next level:

It will increase efficiency

A well run business is predicated upon efficient systems. Systems that allow employees not to take too much time when doing their job. For example, an

employee who has taken an Advanced Microsoft Excel Training with Sunesis Consulting is guaranteed of being able to manipulate data, design spread sheets, build complex equations and prepare data for analysis among other skills that come with the taking on the training. Employees in Operations, HR, Research, Communication Departments with such skills will definitely meet their targets faster and in the best way possible after training.

Moreover, there are a myriad of benefits that come with efficacy, chief being that profitability and productivity will surge. For example, having a culture of training staff will keep your staff a breast with the latest technology. This works well especially when there’s a new employee, as they will find efficient systems and staff that can easily orientate them on the systems. This reduces the lag in productivity when there’s a new employee.

It will help you retain the right talent

As mentioned earlier on boarding is expensive. The cost of regularly having to advertise, source, interview and train new employees is high and will take away time meant for other important aspects of the business.

Secondly, employees will stay where they feel appreciated and since their jobs become easier to handle after training, employees are bound to enjoy their work meaning productivity will increase.

Employees who take any of our courses become competitive because they acquire skills that businesses need. Their ability to compile data in an easy comprehensive way will save you time especially when making decisions for your company.  I mean, who doesn’t want the best employees in the country running their business(es), right?

You won’t overburden your IT Department

Taking employees from different departments for Advanced Microsoft Excel Training will make them more tech savvy and since they understand the needs of their department better, they will analyse and represent data in a more comprehensive way.

On the other hand, not taking them for training means they will rely on the tech savvy department, the IT department, to enter and analyse data on their behalf. This will overburden the IT department by taking time away from the core agendas of the department.

It’s a worthy way to plough back into your business

If you are looking for an affordable way of investing in your business then training your employees is one of the best ways. We are all aware that ploughing back into the business especially in its early stages is important but for some, training a number of employees may sound super expensive. On the contrary, this is one of those affordable investments with long-term benefits.

And since Microsoft Excel comes installed in Windows Microsoft Office, you don’t have to purchase additional software. It’s only about making full use of the asset you already own, awesome right?

Your business will be able to compete at a national and international level

Most companies around the world use Microsoft Excel for various aspects of their business and if you are a franchise or subsidiary of say an international company, then you want to emerge the best among your fellow franchisees or other subsidiaries. Training your employees can give you that edge over competitors. Sunesis Consulting regularly conducts Advanced Microsoft Excel Training in Nairobi and other parts of Kenya covering the following topics:

  • Advanced Data Manipulation Techniques
  • Methods of Summarising Data
  • Sensitivity Analysis & Modelling in Excel
  • Methods of Summarising Data
  • Maximising on the power of PIVOT-TABLES
  • Visual Reporting & Interaction

Once your employees acquire the above skills, they will go beyond using excel for just its spreadsheet features. The training will help them to unlock aspects that when applied, will increase competitiveness for your business.

You will make strategic decisions for your business

Yes, this was covered earlier but it cannot be overemphasised that the ability to organise, calculate and evaluate data will lead to strategic decision making for your business. As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle said, “It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts.” For you to ensure strategic planning for your business, then you must use data to guide policies, marketing and communication strategies among other key aspects of your business.

We are sure you want make the right decisions for your business that’s why we create comprehensive courses that will help your business stand out. With a few days of training, your employees will emerge as industry leaders and give your business a competitive edge.
