And what if we don’t train them, their productivity decreases… and they stay with us for a long time?

Along with training, make the atmosphere in work place friendly and progressive,that they would not like to leave.
training is mandatory for growth in productivity and skills.
Technology changes rapidly.
Training and learning new things is like breathing for a company.

As very rightly put, we don't train, and ultimately the workman becomes a liability.
Turnover of trained hands, competent ones is a living reality and there are several ways to retain such precious talents.
But the employer needs to be aware that such workers are of premium quality , industry needs to retain them and so has to devise long term policies for it. Devising them is the HR man's job.

Surveys have consistently shown that people leave companies due to bad managers.
If you train your staff well, and they become highly productive members of staff, then you have to nuture them, trust them, pay them properly, and treat them well. Put them in a department with a useless and inefficient manager, and you will lose them as they will become frustrated at not being able to do the job the way they've been trained. If they don't leave, they will just become passive, and end up just as useless as their manager or the CEO who refuses to fire useless, unproductive line managers.
Similarly, if top management are not supportive of their staff, then they will leave. I am sure every member of CiteHR could relate a story about poor management they have encountered and the stress and frustration it caused. It is every bit as bad as the Covid-19 pandemic and many, many businesses suffer because of it.

Dear colleague,
You are training for skills which are in demand. Certainly, you rightfully deserve more to benefit from the the skill training you impart than outsiders.
You need to craft retention strategy to fix the attrition. It could be enhancing wages, facilities , suitable incentive scheme and creating career path and motivating then to show a sense gratitude for investing in them with specialised training. You need to figure out what would work best based on identified reasons for attrition.

Training is vital and if the organisation does not train employees and the productivity decreases than it is a liability for the organisation. Trained employees are also motivated and they would be with the organisation.

Dear Friends,
Also thing about a situation where, for any reasons, the company is forced to change it's location or the product line or the process or even shut down.
In that case good employers would always wish that their employees are in a better position to accommodate well.
I believe that a trained employee updated with multiple skills would have better chances of survival.
People might have experienced this in the current pandemic conditions...
