Down The Rabbit Hole

The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD) collected training information from over 2500 firms and found that companies that offer comprehensive training:


The Reflecting Pool Have 218 percent higher income per employee than those with less comprehensive training,
The Reflecting Pool Enjoy a 24 percent higher profit margin than those who spend less on training, and
The Reflecting Pool Generate a 6 percent higher shareholder return if the training expenditure per employee increases by $680.

These statistics can be found along with some interesting corporate examples here.

 

A sensible reminder to us from the Gallup group:


   Helping employees apply their talents in their roles is just a first step on the road to your company's continuous improvement. In the long run, selecting and training the right employees will be much more productive than training the wrong ones.  


The measured words of caution come at the end of an interesting article on how to also boost productivity by leveraging employee strengths. Drop by here for a quick and interesting read.

It kind of reminds us of Joe Harless’ stance,


   An ounce of analysis is worth a pound of objectives.  


Sometimes you can make a great list of objectives, but there are some problems that training cannot solve. The thing to do is a proper analysis of the situation to know the truth.
