  • Monmouth-Ocean, NJ (1888PressRelease) July 20, 2010 - During an unpredictable and recovering economy, it is critical to have a team comprised of well-rounded employees. A versatile staff is not only better equipped to address an organization's current business challenges, but is also more prepared to meet unexpected business demands. Snelling Staffing - The Wyckoff Group (TWG) is reporting a new emerging employment craze to build a more flexible team: cross-training.

    "The cross-training philosophy involves educating employees in different functions and positions of the company," says Frank Wyckoff, President of Snelling Staffing - TWG. "While you are training an employee in another field, a temporary worker is managing your employee's workload. This allows your team to develop new skills and become more knowledgeable in other divisions of your business, all while your tasks are completed by temporary workers."

    Wyckoff states that some of the benefits of cross-training include:

    Protecting your company from turnover and absenteeism
    Giving your employees a better understanding of company operations
    Providing your staff with a holistic view of your organization
    Improving your team's proficiencies and abilities in multiple disciplines
    Obtaining new insight for problem solving
    Building interdepartmental appreciation and employee morale
    Increasing long-term efficiency, effectiveness and productivity
    Gaining fresh perspectives and suggestions on streamlining assignments

    "Cross-training your employees is a strategic long-term commitment to improving the efficiency and effectiveness of your organization," adds Wyckoff.
