If you’re like most business leaders, you’re always looking for improved results for your organization. In today’s competitive environment most organizations need increased sales, improved operations and a highly skilled workforce to deliver products and services effectively. While business goals may be similar across industries, each organization has a unique culture and specific issues and challenges to improve results and achieve greater success.
Improving employee performance is an important element in the organizational success formula, and providing customized employee training is a proven approach to improving performance. By addressing the skills that employees need and the skills that current employees possess, or “skills gaps,” and applying the training to real workplace issues, customized training programs are an effective way to build employee skills that can be directly transferred to the job.
The process of customization involves some important steps, including:
- Analysis of Needs:
An effective needs analysis involves discussion of specific learning objectives, business goals, desired training outcomes, organizational culture, information about participants, and identification of the optimal structure for training delivery, such as time frames, work schedules and production needs.
- Identifying Topics:
Based on the needs analysis, training topics that address identified organizational objectives are chosen.
- Customized Training Content:
Content for each training topic is customized to include discussions, activities, examples and exercises that reflect the real day to day work of the organization.
Employees who receive training that is applicable to their unique work environment and addresses their specific skills gaps are not only more likely to improve their work performance but also to experience a greater sense of teamwork and cooperation among their fellow workers.
