Training ROI and Business Results

How to measure the impact of training on business results.

Attention: Business/Financial Editor, City Editor, Education Editor, Lifestyle Editor TORONTO, ONTARIO, MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - The Gaski Performance Group, in collaboration with Seneca College, Faculty of Continuing Education and Training, are pleased to announce the "Measuring the ROI of Training", a complimentary half-day workshop for HR and training personnel, will be held on April 2, 2008 in Toronto. This workshop can assist HR and management in measuring the impact of their training initiatives on business results.

"Our goal is to support training and development in a way that positively impacts business results," said Joe Gaskovski, President of the Gaski Performance Group. "Without a clear focus on business results training will remain a cost to the organization rather than an investment for it."

According to The American Society for Training and Development (ASTD), more than half of human resource professionals surveyed consider the impact of training on financial performance as a top challenge. While some organizations measure the impact on their training investments most have no idea where to start.

This workshop is an opportunity for those responsible for training to learn practical methods to measure training's impact on business results. The session covers the key performance metrics (KPI) used, the ROI data collection process, and how to evaluate the ROI results (in financial terms). A background on the evaluation levels (outlined by Donald Kirkpatrick, a pioneer in modern training evaluation), is used to demonstrate the value of one measurement level over another.
