Last week, we covered the Top 5 Reasons to Train Your Employees and now it’s time to discuss how to get the most out of their training. You’re making a big investment when you carve out time and money to send your employees to training. It’s important to get the most out of it and here are some things to consider. What is your plan for training your employees? Do you have specific goals in mind? Have you ever sent employees out for training and wondered if they learned anything that is relevant to what they do? There are many questions you should ask before and after your employees go off to training. Was there an end objective or training plan for the employee? What are the key points that would make the training successful?

Believing in your employees enough to send them to training gives them a sense of belonging and worth, which increases morale, motivation and creativity. Be sure to be open and make time to listen to all their new ideas when they get back. Training can increases communication and trust between employees and managers. Managers can be both the weak link or the magnetic force that keeps employees with a company. Managers and employees should discuss goals and expectations before training. After training, discuss the best thing(s) employees learned and how they can be implemented. Remember, employees don’t leave companies–they leave managers. Training intangibles - When employees are better prepared technically they have a higher positive attitude, which correlates to better customer relations and reduced scrap rates. Stay tuned for another training-related blog post next week when we will discuss how to get the most out of employee training. For more [...]
