Why You Should Educate Your Software Testing Team

When looking to hire new members for your software testing team, you hired only the very best. You looked for trained, experienced, educated professionals to enhance your team. You formed a team fit for your business, who works tirelessly to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

So why might you need to educate them even further?

As humans, we are constantly learning and expanding our skillsets. We thrive from a sense of development. Thus, there are several crucial reasons for why investing in your software testing team’s education could result not just in an increase in their skillset, but also an increase in their morale and job performance. Much like a monetary reward, new knowledge can also feel like a little bonus and motivate your team to keep working hard. Here are some of the top reasons for why you should consider investing in your team’s education:

1) Technology and tools change so fast that it is important to keep up to date

The first, and perhaps most important, reason why you should be investing in your software testing team’s education is due to the fast and ever-changing climate of our internet-centered world. Programs and tools get constant upgrades, whose deliverables tend to be important for the functionality of your business. High quality products and programs require a certain level of understanding in order to be used correctly, and especially when you introduce a new tool into your work environment it can be detrimental to not accompany this change with some new training.

2) Spend money now to save money later

Having a proactive attitude towards your software testing team’s knowledge could end up saving you a lot of money in the long run; the more they know, they easier it will be for them to detect errors and problems before they cause a huge disruption. We all know sometimes even the smallest of mistakes can come with a big price tag, so it is smarter to invest in your team now before you find yourself having to spend even more money on damage control.

3) Invest in your company’s reputation

In today’s social media climate, customer satisfaction is of extreme importance. A delay as small as two seconds could result in a customer choosing your competitors website. Software needs to be functioning perfectly in order to avoid losing potential business opportunities. If your team is well trained and up-to-date, you can insure that your costumers will be satisfied with the speed and functionality of your softwares, and avoid profit losses.   

4) Security, security, and more security

Most security threats and issues are individual occurrences that need individual attention and specific solutions. Not only that, but these solutions tend to evolve every month, and staying on top of this information is key. By educating your software testing team you can insure that they are aware of the latest security developments, making sure they are staying on top of problems and their resolutions.
