Before embarking on a new training program, it is important to understand what to choose and how to get the most out of it. While a packaged plan might not resolve all the issues you are facing within your workplace, a training program, when properly tailored to your business, can eliminate reoccurring workplace issues.
To ensure you create a customised training plan relevant to your needs and that of your employees, we’ve put together these 4 tips.
1. Determine Training Needs
Likely, your company already has a wealth of resources that will help identify the training needs of its employees. From job descriptions to HR complaints, there are a number of internal records you can review to help align your training objectives with the company goals. Reviewing these will help ensure that you are actually providing your staff with the training they need to progress in their roles and to ensure the company operates smoothly.
2. Understand your Legal Obligations
There are also government and legal obligations that need to be met by your training program. Consider Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) or Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) requirements, along with any state-level regulations.
3. Decide which Employees to Train
Once you have reviewed the training subjects you need and the legal obligations you have, you need to figure out which employees need training. Again, it is best to use company resources such as your company policy, employee records, performance reviews and so forth. You can even have informal discussions or interviews with employees and supervisors to determine proficiency or complications.
4. Plan the Training Delivery
Once you have identified everything in the above sections, you can determine how to best deliver the custom training to ensure your audience assimilate and retain what they learn.
Here are a few steps to guide you through the planning:
- Set SMART training goals – create these goals for every training need you have identified. This will help quantify the success of the training, either by employee accomplishment, company-wide increase in production quota or decrease in injury rates.
- Create a master training schedule – this should outline all the training you want within a specific time frame; with specific dates for each session and make-up sessions.
- Know how to deliver the training – Use a variety of methods to reach different types of learners until you know the best method for your company and employees.
