Training Doesn’t Matter if it Isn’t Applied on the Job: Lessons from Brain Science
The solution seems simple enough: We bring in a team of experts to train our people in the right way to do something, or we push out content through our LMS. Problem solved, right? Unfortunately, no. Companies spend more than $140 billion on training and development worldwide, but almost half of employees say it isn’t helping. Worse, businesses aren’t getting the results they want, either.
What are we doing wrong? For starters, most traditional training methods do not consider the way that people actually learn and retain information. We’re ignoring brain science and losing billions in wholly preventable accidents and errors.
