Whether you use home-grown training programs or outside sources to educate your staff on the latest information out there for performance improvement, chances are, you are creating fear in the people who work for you.
That’s right. You might be frightening them and creating distrust.
Now the enlightened employee sees training as an employer’s investment in their future, but others see it as punishment for things they aren’t doing properly.
The good news is…you can change the perception your employees have of your training programs based on how you roll it out to them. It’s all about the communication.
Here are the things your staff wants to know before attending any training program you may be launching:
- Why you are conducting the training program.
- What you want the staff to get out of it.
- How you will measure the program’s success.
- Your expectations for the program’s impact on your organization.
Taking this approach will create an environment of full disclosure and cooperation between company and employees, paving the way for learning and growth to occur. Give them the what, the why, and the how and your training programs will be a success.
How do you go about rolling out a new training initiative in your organization?
