What is Training Needs Assessment?
A training needs assessment is a critical step in developing a plan of action to improve performance within a specific area of your business. Through this assessment, Tortal Training can identify the tasks employees need to complete to effectively perform their role, as well as identify any performance gaps. To determine training needs, performance results are gathered through feedback with current staff and review of any current relevant reports. We ultimately evaluate the current state of job performance and define goals moving forward.
