Posted on June 22, 2017 By Jake White

Employee training is an important part of any corporation. Ensuring that it is efficient, effective, and adaptable is key to thriving in a competitive market. However, companies have been making the same mistakes when addressing this important issue for decades, and it costs them millions.

How to stop wasting money on employee training. 

 According to Michael Beer, Harvard Business School Professor, it’s not necessarily an issue of the quality of the training content. Instead, it's a matter of laying the proper groundwork in a company to prepare those in leadership positions for effective employee training.

 While having a great training program that delivers the right information to the right people is of incredible importance, it may be ineffective if the workplace environment does not match the philosophy of the employee training. What this means for organizations is that leadership at every level is unified, and employee feedback can scale the ranks of said leadership.
