When it comes to training, it’s important to cover the basics and set a good foundation. However, only covering the basics or “check-the-box” solutions could leave your people short on skills as the content often lacks the connection back to their specific job roles and responsibilities. When learners can’t connect the training content back to their daily responsibilities they are often unable to apply the new knowledge they received.
Repeat, repeat and repeat—To help make the most of your training investment, content should be reinforced, updated and delivered annually or on a recurring basis. This reinforcement concept helps support or increase the learner’s ability to comprehend and apply the training content.
Getting specific—Often by adding or supplementing your off-the-shelf/“check-the-box” training strategy with solutions tailored and customized to your organization’s unique needs you can create more opportunities for your people to gain the skills they need to perform and develop in their roles. By giving your people the skills they need to feel and perform successfully they can be better positioned and motivated to help their organization achieve the goals you’ve established.

A flexible and cost effective way to help include
Leveraging course content from our 2015 Course Catalog we work with you to infuse a low-moderate level of content tailoring intended on making the content more relevant to your organization. Our PwC Subject Matter Specialists ("SMSs") deliver the content supplemented by your SMSs to assist with specific interpretation and application of the content to your policies, procedures or organization. The inclusion of organization specific examples and discussion points that link back to real-world scenarios help increase the overall effectiveness of the course and provide your participants a better sense of how to apply generic content in their day-to-day responsibilities.
