TRAINING IN THE WORKPLACE

“Quality assurance and compliance in the training sector can come with a heavy weight load for companies. A study by learning network Skillsnet found there are four facets to evaluating training in the workplace. Reaction of the participants to the training and connection to the subject matter were of utmost importance. Learning new skills was ranked highly whereas behaviour demonstrated whether or not the skills learned were implemented afterwards. Ann-Marie Sorley, founder and CEO of Veri Integrated Training (a cloud-based dashboard that captures data and key performance indicators) believes capturing data is an essential part of a company’s success. “l had my own training company and felt the paperwork demanded by accrediting bodies was a huge cost but we could not see benefit as it was all in dead paper. I knew there was huge value in this data.”
