HR professionals can finally measure the business benefits of training thanks to Birmingham based Wright Solutions.
The company, who are the Midlands’ leading HR recruitment and training specialists, have announced their ground-breaking Next Generation initiative (NGi).
This will see Wright Solutions review and redesign their existing portfolio of training courses to maximise the benefits delivered.
As part of the NGi initiative, a best practice evaluation process will now accompany every Wright Solutions training course as standard.
Jon Terry, Operations Director at Wright Solutions, explained:
“measuring the true value that training provides has always been a contentious issue. Indeed, research undertaken by the CIPD has revealed that 80% of HR professionals believe training delivers greater benefits than they can demonstrate.
“Our NGi initiative changes things. After reviewing and redesigning our training courses, we will award ‘NGi Approved’ status to those that satisfy strict criteria. This will give HR professionals the reassurance of knowing that courses will add value, real competitor advantage and long term business benefits”.
The new initiative adopts a carefully structured approach to training evaluation.
Delegates will be asked to identify the key lessons learnt and the ways in which they plan to implement these in the workplace.
Next, Wright Solutions’ Account Managers will work in partnership with clients to examine this feedback.
Delegates will then receive an e-mail reminding them of the key lessons and will be given the contact details of their Wright Solutions Account Manager.
Three months after the training, Wright Solutions will invite delegates to attend a half day Application Review meeting.
Finally, key stakeholders will receive reports from Wright Solutions to ensure that the training has been beneficial and that it has achieved its objectives.
“All trainers know that they should thoroughly review the training they provide to their employees. The reality though is that most don’t have the time. Wright Solutions will now review training on behalf of clients, adding considerable value to their businesses”.
