    Measuring Results From Training Course

    Course Introduction

    This course will teach participants how to evaluate the results from training employees.

    Course Outline

    Training employees is a long term investment in that employee. The cost is not only measured in rands but by the value the employee adds to the company. Some training has an immediate benefit because the employees can immediately employ their new skills to the business environment and the results of the training can be seen in the bottom line. Other kinds of training, such as soft skills, do not impact the bottom line as immediately; their value can be seen over a long term view with regards to staff turnover and new customers. You’ve sent you employee on a training course, and the person has come back with a positive attitude ready to take on new tasks and responsibilities. How do you as the employer know that the training was successful and that you got your money’s worth? BOTI’s workshop on measuring training effectively is here to help you. We begin our workshop with Kolbe’s learning styles, knowing an employee’s learning can make a difference in the cost to the company to train that individual, since not all workshops and courses are alike. Matching the correct employee to the correct style of training is thus a further investment.

    Kirkpatrick created a triangle for evaluation, each level of the triangle correspond loosely with Kolbe’s learning styles. It contains four levels and each level is based on the level before it. In order to get results, participants must have a pleasant experience with the first three. Evaluation of the training can begin immediately by noting the employee’s behaviour in implementation of skills and knowledge.TIP: Learning objectives generally fall into one of three categories: Knowledge and facts that a participant should be able to remember. Skills and a new task that the participant should be able to perform. Ability: the combination of skills and knowledge evident in results. After performing a needs assessment we will discuss evaluation methods and learn how to write learning objectives and link them to the evaluation. An evaluation plan should be linked to every training program. The evaluation plan should include evaluation during and directly after training by either the trainer or direct supervisor, this would be an informal type of evaluation. Once the trainee sets his or her goals and objectives, more formal evaluation can take place after training based on the employee’s performance. We round off our course by showing attendants how to calculate training in the terms of ROI or return on investment. It is useful and practical and provides evidence to the employer that the current training is working and is an investment to the company or, that it’s not working and in which case the employer can back track along the line of evaluation to find the specific training or program.
