Calculating the Hidden Costs of Training Development

Watch Now

Does your company have a defined line item for employee training in its budget? If so, how accurate is it?

Many manufacturing companies develop most, or all, training content internally. And over 60% rely on paper and/or spreadsheets to manage all training activity. As a result, the true cost of training development and management is often invisible.

But that cost can and should be measured. And just as important, the opportunity cost when creating training internally. Those responsible for training development are typically the only ones that recognize how much time it requires, and how much more they could achieve if it wasn’t choking their calendars. The crux is how to convince executive leaders that additional technology and content resources are needed.
