Evaluating the effectiveness of training programs –

After completing a training, the HR professionals must evaluate the effectiveness of the said training. Unless we complete the procedure of training effectiveness evaluation we would not come to know if the training has been successful or not. 

 In case it is observed from the evaluation methods, that a particular training has not been successful, Human Resource Department team must take a deep dive into the entire process of training starting from deciding the training content, deciding the trainer, deciding the method of training et cetera. 

Training Feedback:

Upon completing the training, HR professionals are required to collect training feedback from the participants. 

1.Overall Effectiveness of training: Through the feedback form, you can ask the participants to provide rating for the overall satisfaction from the said training program. You can also ask the participants to give feedback on ‘if they are satisfied with the training to such an extent wherein, they would love to recommend the said programs to their other colleagues who have currently not attended the said training program’.

You can also ask questions such as ‘was the trainer able to build an atmosphere during the conduct of training where in the participants were encouraged to exchange ideas and thoughts leading to making the training more interesting and effective’, ‘was the trainer also giving relevant activities to do during the training to ensure that the training doesn’t become monotonous and instead it becomes more and more interesting where in the participants are even more engaged in the training’.
