What do you want out of your employees? Chances are, you want them to perform their jobs at their peak potential. Great. Now, how do you get there? We recommend you train your people. While often overlooked, trainings tailored to employee needs will help them garner the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to be top performers. “Wait, wait!”, you might be thinking. “What if we’ve got great training in place but I need to motivate my employees to actually do what they know how to do?!” Do not fret we say. Check out our motivation section later.
There are four primary steps to make sure you have a good training system in your organization:
#1 Needs Assessment
Needs assessments are used to determine what knowledge, skills, and abilities are required for the job and what the objectives of the training are.
#2 Select and Train
Second you’ve got to determine what type of training to use and implement the training.
Third, you’ll want to evaluate how well that training actually went over
#4 Validity Testing
Lastly, you’ll want to determine if it would be appropriate to use this training again, or if it would be best to move to a different training type.
