Evaluating the Effectiveness of Your Training Program

OnDemand Webinar (90 minutes)

Learn why effective training programs are worth the investment and how to evaluate a training program to make sure it accelerates new hires performance and engagement.

Managers often question what benefits the organization gained from training and worry that money invested in training was wasted. Training is often the first thing cut when the business cycle goes south, and managers often worry that employees will take company investments in training and leverage those investments into better paying jobs with other organizations (including competitors). This information will help those responsible for training to make the business case for evaluating it and review common and new ways to think about training evaluation.
