We’ve all heard that ‘practice makes perfect’.
That is how you really get ‘great’ at something – sports, academia, cooking…and digital analytics.
To practice, you need to train, keep on top of new developments and at times even do a re-fresher and practice what you think you already know to uncover missed opportunities and techniques.
While there is a cost involved to train people with new skills or hone existing skills so that they get better/faster/smarter at doing their jobs, employers do not have to fund the entire 100% investment on their own.
The Canadian government offers direct financial aid to individual employers who want to provide their employees (new or existing) with short term training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.
Even better, ClickInsight’s 2-day in-classroom analytics training courses are covered under this grant:
The Canada-Ontario Job Grant:
- Provides up to $10K in government support per employee for training costs
- Requires employers to cover 1/3 of total training costs
- Requires that training be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer
