Many young and growing companies suddenly find themselves confronted with an urgent need to formalize their training efforts. Informal coaching/apprenticeship type training conducted by individual departments no longer suffices.
There is now a need for training that is uniform and consistent throughout the organization so management can be assured that employees know the standards of excellence expected of them.
A formalized training function is required to achieve this.
Benefits of a formal training function
- Train by design, not by accident
- Avoid unnecessary duplication and redundancy of training efforts
- Centralize responsibility and accountability for training
- Staff with professional workplace learning specialists and administrators
- Uniform and consistent training programs
- Centralized tracking of training efforts (e.g., course completion, participant certifications, etc.)
