The Strategic Value of Workplace Training and Development

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Training can be defined as the process of teaching or learning a skill. That’s the textbook definition. But in reality, the concept of training has many more aspects than just learning a skill. To many organizations, training is a means of meeting regulatory or legal requirements. Common to this purpose, for example, is training employees in the rules of sexual harassment in the workplace. There are other examples, as well: Safety Training for employees working with industrial equipment to meet insurance requirements or training in the organization’s policy and procedures. There is management training, too. One of the programs we see quite frequently is Training for New Supervisors.

There’s no argument that compliance or certification training is very important…to the organization, to the individual, or both. But the questions that we hear again and again is this: “How does training add value to my organization? “Why should training and professional development be a part of our strategy?” “Where, exactly, is the return on the investment?”

Telania | eLeaP presents this free research white paper on “The Strategic Value of Workplace Training and Development”.  In this white paper, we examine the intended purpose of training including productivity, quality, empowerment, alignment, teamwork and, importantly, professional development.  We also examine how training supports reductions in liability and risk, and can be used to communicate business conduct and social responsibility requirements for the organization.

We then moved the discussion to ways of calculating value and increasing value through eLearning.  We followed this with a detailed look at developing strategies for training and development, along with some additional considerations in the development of training strategy.  We conclude this in-depth analysis with a section on how training can be used to empower employees.

Here’s what you’ll find covered in this White Paper:

* How does Training add Value to your Organization?

* Why should Training and Professional Development be part of your Strategy?

* Where, exactly, is the Return on your Investment and how do you Measure it?

* How to Increase Value Through eLearning

* How to Develop Strategies for Training and Development
