Companies might think they have adequate training initiatives for new and continuing employees covering multiple functions. Too often, though, their efforts are falling short. The failure to properly train one’s workforce can result in billions of dollars of lost profits from insurance claims, worker's compensation, medical visits, time off work and lawsuits both inside and outside the organization. On this episode, Carol Leaman, chief executive officer of Axonify, talks about what constitutes an effective training program. She answers a number of key questions: What should you be teaching your employees? What are the most effective tools with which accomplish that? How can you make them want to learn? How can you ensure that they’re retaining the information? And what steps should you be taking to ensure that good training remains a permanent part of your organization? Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of Supply Chain Brain.
