I am going to share five reasons why training does not deliver business results and what you can do about it.
Most people agree that training is important, but somehow it does not always lead to increased performance and better business results.
Why do we measure training effectiveness?
Companies across the globe invest heavily into employee training and development.
In 2020, employee training and education spending in America alone was $82.5 billion. Effective training programs help employees be more productive and retain their jobs longer. Measuring training effectiveness has proven to become an important tool to boost employees’ engagement and retention.
Training programs should aim to identify reliable metrics and methods to evaluate the effectiveness of such training initiatives. After all, you wouldn’t want to deliver training that doesn’t produce expected results.
Five reasons why most training fails
- Lack of a business case.
- Participants have no idea why the training program is practical and solves real problems.
- Participants are not confident enough in applying the skills
- No serious application and follow up.
- Lack of systems and visual reminders to help participants retain their knowledge.
