Only 25% of organizations believe that they are effective at training or sourcing training (Source: Trainers Advice) and many organizations get lured into offering generic courses that have not been customized to meet the real needs of their employees.
There are options in the marketplace for off-the-shelf corporate training solutions, but to take full advantage of a training opportunity, custom training development is the way to go. You will never get the same attention to detail and tailored feel from a canned course, as you will from a custom training solution. The decisions that are made in regards to what training will be the right fit, and what learning technologies are to be used, ensure a higher level of learner engagement.
When you go out into the marketplace looking for a vendor, of course you will have a budget. That doesn’t mean you are stuck with the stale, same old stuff that’s collecting dust on the shelf! Finding a vendor that can work with you and your budget, provide interactive and innovative solutions will give you the best bang for your buck and save you money in the long run. I’ve seen companies pay for access to a bunch of canned eLearning courses, only to discover that employees don’t use ……what a waste. Find a vendor that can customize your corporate training to give you the peace of mind that you’ve spent your money on something that is truly worthwhile and will excite your learners.
