Impact on Business

Training can be costly, so you will want to assess its impact. However, sometimes its effect cannot simply be translated into bottom line dollars and cents.

You may need to review why you sought training to begin with and whether your concerns have been remedied. If the training was on customer service, the end result may be fewer customer complaints and/or see an increase in sales. Training on a new computer may net less errors or quicker processing.

Changes may not occur overnight, so it's important to be patient.


Analyze Your Needs

Take the time to carefully analyze your needs when designing your training plan. This will help you choose the right type of training for your requirements.
