Here's a sobering statistic: More than 40% of employed Americans have received no skills training in the last two years! In fact, more than a quarter (26%) of HR executives say they have no training budget at all, according to ResearchNow! McKinsey and Company verifies the predictable result: only one-quarter of respondents to their survey said that their training programs measurably improved business performance.
Most employers recognize the value of a well-trained workforce and devote ample resources to this important function. However, it’s all too common for employers to focus on skills and technical training, at the expense of compliance, management and sexual harassment training. That's a costly omission.
