Training and Development Objectives
Training and Development Objectives (KPIs) are designed to measure the impact your company’s training and development program has on your employees. These objectives measure whether employees are engaging with it and benefiting from it. A well-run program will be of immense benefit to the employees and the company.
- Time to proficiency – Time to proficiency measures the time it takes for employees to grasp the outcomes of the training. The faster employees learn, the sooner they will produce results. Consequently, this metric is an indicator of training effectiveness.
- Knowledge and skill retention – The knowledge and skill retention KPI is designed to measure the extent to which employees retain the knowledge and skills gained during the training sessions. It also measures the employees’ improvement in expertise and their ability to apply the knowledge gained directly to their work functions.
- Transfer of training – The transfer of training KPI is designed to measure the extent to which employees are able to transform knowledge gained during a training program into skill. The fundamental objective of corporate training is to enable employees to turn their knowledge into expertise.
- Impact on organizational performance – The impact on organizational performance measures the difference in employee performance before and after training. Training improves business efficiencies, productivity, and ensures that the company meets its compliance requirements. Succinctly stated, training is the key to improving the performance of both individual employees and the organization.
- Employee engagement – Employee engagement measures the extent to which employees engage with the training program to turn the knowledge gained into usable skills. The more employees engage with the training and development program, the higher their skill levels are, and the greater the chance that the organization will meet its goals.
- Stakeholder satisfaction – The stakeholder satisfaction KPI measures how satisfied the clients are with the training and development program. This metric is evaluated based on employee learning outcomes. If the client sees the value in the training program, the stakeholder satisfaction value will be high.
- Increased retention – The increased retention KPI measures how long employees remain with a company. If newly trained employees feel ill-equipped for the job, they are more likely to leave within their first 90 days. When training success is measured in terms of employee retention, higher retention points to a successful training program.
- Skills attainment – The skill attainment KPI measures the employee’s level of knowledge or skill pre-learning and again post learning. If the employee’s skill level has not improved post-training, the training program was not successful.
- Workplace application – The workplace application KPI is designed to measure whether there is evidence of the employee applying the newly learned skill or knowledge gain in the workplace.
- Individual behavior change – The individual behavior change KPI measures whether the employee’s behavior has changed due to a training and development program reflecting the corporate culture and goals.
- Team behavior change – The team behavior change KPI is designed to measure whether the team is working together more coherently and more effectively after attending a training program.
- Meeting goals or targets – The meeting goals or targets post-training KPI measures the individual employee or team performance against predefined goals or targets. This metric is tracked over time (3, 6, and 9 months) post learning to monitor the impact of the training program.
- Cost of training – The cost of training KPI measures the cost of a training program per attendee. This is an internal training department measurement. In high turnover organizations, lowering the cost per student of training per employee or attendee can be used as an effectiveness measurement.
- Revenue generation – The revenue generation KPI measures the company revenue generated as a direct and indirect consequence of employee training. If the organization shows an increase in revenue after the training program, it is due to the training. A new income generation venture is the best time to measure this KPI.
- Instructor performance – The instructor performance metric measures how well the instructor has performed during the training. Aspects evaluated include the instructor’s presentation skills, knowledge of the subject, projection of organizational values, and adherence to instructional guidelines. Both employees or trainees can assess the instructor.
- End-user satisfaction – End-user satisfaction measures the effectiveness of the training program. The training’s effectiveness can be tracked straight after the training has ended, then 30 and 60 days afterward.
