The majority of TrainingZONE members have their training cycle fully integrated with the needs of their organisation, according to our recent poll.
The breakdown of responses reveals that 40% of voters said their training cycle was a formal process which started with identifying business objectives and linked directly to them. A further 18% said that appraisal, training and evaluation took place, but that they were not directly linked to business strategy.
However, a quarter of respondents said that training in their organisation happened on an ad-hoc basis as and when needed, and a further 18% said that although training needs were identified, they were rarely followed up or evaluated.
