A collection of resources on getting started with corporate training

Launching corporate training from scratch may seem like an over-the-top challenge at first. In reality, it isn’t always that hard; well, at least it doesn’t have to be hard to be successful. In this starter pack, we’ve collected the most relevant reads on employee training so you can easily understand the current state of affairs and be well on your way to launching your employee training project.

Part 1. What is Employee Training Anyway?

what is an employee training

An employee training program is an official learning activity initiated by a company. By launching it, you start to deliberately manage learning in the company and align with your business goals. These goals could be: 

  • To reduce staff turnover rate;
  • To increase the number of closed deals or level up the average check;
  • To improve customer service, etc. 

All of these and much more can be reached through effective employee training.

So, do you recommend starting employee training right off?

We’d love to shout ‘YES!! Training your employees is the best thing you can do for your team!’ But is creating a training program always the key? Well, not necessarily. Sometimes, those goals above can be reached with alternative (and, maybe, less expensive) ways. So, before you make any serious investments in training, it’s a good idea to start from a training needs assessment.
