After surveying over 200 full-time employees, Intercall revealed that 2 out of 3 employees said that on-job trainings play an important role in their decision to stay with the company. And in fact, 3 out of 4 employees have participated in at least one training program last year.
In fact, when it comes to younger employees (aged under 40), 69% of them claimed that job-related trainings played a vital role in their decision to stay at the current company, compared to the 59% of employees aged over 40.
Keith McNiven from Right Path Fitness commented on the feedback from his employees: “We are a rather small team, so gathering detailed feedback wasn’t a problem. In 2015 I’ve organized 3 trainings for my employees – two in-person workshops and one online course for the customer support team, who telecommute. The in-company survey said that 96% of participants enjoyed the online course more, rather than a classroom training session”.
The feedback McNiven got is rather similar to the results Intercall survey, which pinpointed that 1/3 of employees consider that the current training delivery methods are not an effective use of time.
Solution? Stop investing in expensive in-house, classroom trainings and opt for e-learning options.
Currently, 76% of trainings still occur as in-person workshops/classroom-style training, while interactive online courses were named as the delivering method by only 56% of respondents.
