Upskilling vs Hiring New

What’s better for your business?

Have you ever been stuck when trying to find someone to fill a blank skilled role within your company? Because Same! 

It’s most likely that you have hired the employees you have currently because they may meet the company culture, or maybe their smart, capable and motivated. Unfortunately, as time goes on skills can fall behind, especially when it comes to things like chain of responsibility. 

It has been recognised across various industries that the lack of skilled workers can be threatening the growth of their businesses. 

The good news is that Saltera training has a solution. Upskilling or training existing employees to learn new skills will help businesses succeed, even in difficult times.

The pure value of upskilling employees in recent times has not gone unnoticed. Even Large tech and E-commerce company Amazon announced a $700 million commitment to train 100,000 U.S. employees by 2025 to help them transition into in-demand, higher-paying jobs. Since the launch of Upskilling 2025 in 2019, more than 70,000 employees have participated in one of Amazon's nine upskilling programs.


Upskilling can be a very much cost-effective task in comparison to hiring new employees or replacing existing ones. The process of attracting, vetting, hiring and training employees are all pricey parts of bringing someone new onboard. 

Upskilling, on the other hand, is only a fraction of that cost. While yes, it is an initial investment, the overall cost does not come close to the comparison options. If you’re able to train your current employees, your company may see cost savings that make you fall off your seat. 


If your company is falling behind the times and suffering due to a lack of logistic prowess, it’s time to start upskilling your workforce. 

Currently, the options available for upskilling employees is a very cost-effective and efficient way to educate your business, not only that it makes employees happier too. 

That’s where Saltera can help, not only do we offer the Queensland Government's Skills Assure funding to those students eligible, we have our trainers attend your place of work to train your employees to ensure that there is minimal disruption to your business daily operations.
