Formal training insures the employee is properly trained in all aspects of the job they are to perform including the safety procedures and procedures to follow to do the job. It is important to employers due to many reasons. For example , if you get hurt while doing the job the employer can determine if this was caused by a known error or will this be another JHA{Job Hazard Analysis) that needs to be recorded. Also, if quality issues play a factor it could determine if job wasn't performed according to job specifications.

To put someone on the job without proper training is to let them do the job and learn-it as they go along which provides a lot of mistakes on the employees part for the business and therefore hurt the profits, clients perspective of the business and the business's reputation with the public. Formal training is given so a new employee will become aware of the companies business practices and minimize the mistakes that would be made if someone is not trained on what to do and what not to do.

On-the-job training can work for certain types of jobs. Some repetetive, assembly line work is learned best when actually performing the tasks. In today's information and service oriented business world, that just can't be done.

So many jobs, including factory work, depend on computers. Information technology and the customer service industry would never survive without formal training. Imagine trying to get help with a computer problem by talking to someone who's learning the computer while on the job. I worked in a service industry that required knowledge of federal law and formal procedures. The quality of the work and its efficiency would suffer greatly without training classes. It is so much more costly to have to make corrections or do a job over again than to know how to do it correctly in the first place. From a purely economic point of view it makes all the sense to train employees before they actually do the work hands on.

In order to inspire public confidence in it's customers, business has to have well-trained employees and technicians. Our training consisted of training in a classroom. The length of the classes depended on the complexity of the job you were going to be doing, and each year employees received refresher training and updates for new procedures. After the initial classroom training, new employees received on-the-job training that was subject to review by the instructors and senior employees.

Training is necessary to perform a job in the most efficient and sophisticated manner. With training one can get the prior knowledge of the product or service and difficult tasks and procedures become easy for him.

On the other hand, without training you are blind and doesn't know the navigation through the system. You can work without training but there will be slow productivity with less efficiency. Good companies always go for the training of the employees to equip them with latest tools and technologies.

Training is mandatory because its a complete process of enhancing the skills, capabilities and knowledge of the employees for doing a particular job. Such training is beneficial for the organization because proper training to the employees/workers will allow them  to give more productivity to the organization and less incidents will occur while working. So, it is important to provide formal training to  the employees.

You know, reliability is the most important thing in the job. That's why employers can sometimes test their employees with lie detectors. I recently read an article about that. Here's the link - https://liedetectortest.com/using-the-lie-detector-test-to-determine-employee-reliability/ if you're interested. I think it's a great idea if, for example, there's a problem at work and you need to find the culprit.
