Getting the Most from Your Training Investment

Employee Training

We know that your training department does more than just training: You’re responsible for talent development. The emphasis being on the importance of learning, not just training for training’s sake. The people in your company are more than just “task-doers,” they’re resources — investments you’ve made in your company.

So the question then becomes, how do you get the most from your investment?

Training has been around for as long as humans have had the ability to communicate. Think back to some of the earliest forms of expression we have on record — storytelling by Homer, or philosophical teachings by Socrates — these communications all had one fundamental goal: To get the listener to learn something.

It wasn’t until the early 1900s that training was formalized and systematized in the way that we currently know it. The educational system we’re familiar with now was born in response to the Industrial Revolution, so it needed to be procedural and task oriented. Companies expected workers to have a basic understanding of the skills needed to operate machinery and assembly lines, and the result was an “if-this-then-that” style of training and education.

Education continued to follow that model for several decades before scientific studies in the 80s began to show that there are rhythms and rules to the many ways people perceive and learn things. Developmental and learning studies have been conducted ever since, revealing that there is a diverse range of scientifically validated learning styles that should be employed to get people to learn.

When Tortal Training was founded in 2000, our goal was to take the latest advances in learning technology and approaches, and apply them to effective corporate training — helping organizations go beyond “training” and achieve real “learning”— and thereby to see dramatic return on their employee development investment.

If there’s one thing we want you to know about Tortal Training, it’s that we’re never going to rest on our laurels. We’re a talent training company that knows the world of training is constantly evolving, so we’re always learning and researching new techniques and technologies. Our core competency is to stay on top of that information and be your resource for making informed decisions.

We’re here as a resource for you. We’ll point you in the right direction to reach the business objectives you want. Get started with us today by clicking here to sign up for a free training assessment – we look forward to hearing from you!
