1. How Will Your Employee Training Improve Our Efficiency?
The ultimate aim of most of the best training programs, regardless of what skills are being taught, is increasing efficiency. Become more efficient, become more profitable.
The right workplace training provider will explain how their instruction translates to your team’s improved effectiveness. The training partner will be able to cite specific instances, including past work with other training clients.
The magic words you are looking for in your training provider’s answer are behavioural changes. It is not enough to teach someone about folder and search features to triage email, for example. Behavioural changes take learning a step further. It delves into the how, why, when and what of skills. The key ideas center around:
How is this feature or skill important?
Why should you use it?
When should it be applied in your workflow?
What are the use case best practices - again, specific to your work environment?
Note that a great training provider truly teaching behavioural changes will teach according to your unique situation. It is about talking to clients before, during and after training to curate instruction to the needs of the work group, rather than teaching general ideas non-specific to working conditions.
Here’s another wondrous thing about behavioural improvements: they have a compounding effect. Get better at triaging email and become a better communicator, while freeing up your time for more value-add work.
The short answer is to find the best employee training provider that speaks that language of behavioral improvements, and has the track record to back it up.

2. How Will Your Employee Training Enhance Our Growth?
A worthy training provider will not only bring about behavioural improvements but can engender organizational growth. Growth will be evident in the short term as your workgroup’s efficiencies take shape through time savings, enhanced collaboration and creative problem-solving. But your growth should not stop and start there.
A great training provider can facilitate medium- and long-term growth too. By creating a multi-part employee training program tailored to your company’s needs, you can reap the bridging of skills gaps across all divisions and the strengthening of inter-departmental cohesion.
The right provider will also have a unique ability to forecast emerging trends in the marketplace and labour market. With this foresight, they can anticipate shifting needs in your workforce and develop the best training models in accordance.
