Functional illiteracy hinders an employee’s chances of promotion and positive contribution in the workplace. Companies that provide staff training through learnership programs benefit since they have employees work in the environment where they want them to build skills. The Triple e learnership staff training programs entail theoretical base and practical experience in the workplace. Companies improve their BEE rating when they provide adequate staff training and improve their workforce considerably. The staff training can be focused on giving them the basic literacy in communication, languages, life skills and mathematics required to perform well in their jobs or can be used to help employees brush up on their skills. Where there is a need for specific skills development such as project management companies can also contact Triple e for the specified staff training for that industry.
