​From Flop to Fantastic: When Workplace Training Doesn't Work

​From Flop to Fantastic: When Workplace Training Doesn't Work

In 2023, employees in the U.S. continued to feel more detached from their employers, with less clear expectations, lower levels of satisfaction with their organization, and less connection to its mission or purpose, than they did four years ago. They are also less likely to feel someone at work cares about them as a person.

These are among the findings of Gallup’s most recent survey of U.S. employee engagement, which stagnated for the second half of 2023 following a slight improvement earlier in the year. Creating workplace training programs is a no-brainer, right? Employees and managers say they want it, and companies stand to benefit from it. 

Not so fast. Companies lose money on training when it is clearly valued by employees. 

How? One big reason: the quality of training is poor. Workplace training programs are pulled together quickly, outside vendors are hired and employees are informed they must attend. Little measurement takes place so there isn’t enough information available on the effect the training had on performance. The result? Training programs remain poorly designed and employees remain frustrated.
