Training surveys are a popular way to find out if a training program was effective. It is designed to assess the usefulness of the training program, not just in terms of what goes on in the program, but also what is needed to improve outcomes.
For a company, training is everything. If an employee isn’t prepared to do their job, that employee is going to cost you money. The result is lost productivity, lost sales, errors on the job, and more – issues that could last for years. That’s why a training survey is valuable.
What Does a Training Survey Provide
- The Effectiveness of the Trainer
Were they clear? Did they go over everything in an easy to digest way? Were they friendly and/or engaging and did students feel they were valued?
- The Effectiveness of the Course
Do you need to add another course to improve outcomes? Is there something not being shared? How important is the course in the first place?
- The Effectiveness of the Location
Did the training go off without a hitch? Were there technical errors or distracting problems? Was the service at the front desk friendly and engaging?
This information is then used to evaluate student progress, course quality, and more, so that you can adjust them as needed and ensure that all employees that complete the program are as ready as possible for the work ahead.
