Hiring and Training
When it comes to business training, it's easy to throw money at it and assume the problem will solve itself. Yet in order for companies to get the positive results they hope for — thereby maximizing their investment — it's critical for managers and supervisors to take an active role in mapping out goals and outcomes for their employees. How does this make a difference? Find out with LearnSmart's free whitepaper.
Learning transfer is a critical step in the training process, yet one that is often misunderstood. If employees aren’t able to take what they’ve learned from videos, lectures or other training methods, and put it into practice, then you’ve wasted time, money and effort. The process of learning transfer is part of a level 3 training evaluation. It involves measuring whether employees are using their newly acquired skills and knowledge. And if not, why? Find out with LearnSmart's free whitepaper.
Keep on Track
When employees go through training, the ultimate results rest not with the training itself, but with the people who footed the bill — namely, managers like you. The true value of training can't be seen until some time afterward, when information is converted into practical application. This free whitepaper offers a variety of tips for making the most of a course evaluation.
