Corporate Training Program
Corporate training, also known as Corporate Education or more recently Workplace Learning, is a system of activities designed to educate employees. While it helps employers, it is also beneficial for employees as it helps them obtain and hone knowledge and skills to progress professionally and personally.
Undoubtedly, every individual has their own idea of what makes a ‘good training program’. The truth is there isn’t a unique model of what constitutes the ideal training program. However, some things remain standard in all good training programs –no matter the industry, the employee size, the purpose of the program, the geography, and demography:
Relevance and Need
The experience and information you offer your employees must be relevant, timely, and applicable to their daily job activities. It should help them expand their knowledge, skills and should be easy to digest so they learn quickly and can implement what they learn. It is also imperative to correctly identify who needs to be trained, what topics and skills they should be trained on.
For example, if you have unsatisfied customers, you may need customer service training for your sales team. However, if your company is going through a merger process you might need to train managers on Change Management. We ensure alignment from anything you train your employees on must be aligned with your organizational goals.
When structuring training programs, ensure they are goal-oriented, and the Key Performance Indicators are chosen to paint a holistic picture – time, cost, effectiveness, quality, and quantity of the program.
Manager Input – Manager involvement is important to increase employee engagement in learning. A survey conducted by LinkedIn noted that 56% of employees would spend more time on their training if their manager directed, or recommended, them to a specific program that directly they believe will improve their skills.
