Can Training Improve Productivity?
Probably one of the very important questions to think, can training improve employee productivity. To understand this, we need to go a little deep into understanding the training.
Training is of multiple kinds but primarily we will be discussing two categories of training
1. Technical training – Any training program which is associated with upskilling the employee’s technical skills comes under technical training. Further, this can be divided into two more sections a. Inductive training (Where the technical skill training is provided the first time) and b. reinforcement training (this type of training is provided to reinforce the missing skills in employees)
2. Soft skill training – This type of training is deals with upgrading the soft skills of an employee, which is a must to have skills to perform the job as a team
If we look into the ideal situation training is performed to communicate various kinds of skills to employees and training programs if of multiple types and created with multiple objectives
Training definitely improves the productivity of an employee there is not a single doubt about it, training helps in dealing with the crunch of quality and market-ready employees. Right training program and strategy help in uplifting the resources skills to adequate quality and provides a rapid hiring support

Training need analysis is an activity where an organization performs due diligence to understand the skill gap among its employees. It is a process that is created with the assistance of various department heads. TNA assists in knowing the skills gaps in a scientific manner post which the correct training program can be created and later implemented.
Post TNA training programs are created and later impact measurement tools are implemented to check the impact of training
