ACT is an acronym that stands for:

ASSESSMENTS

Many organizations don’t conduct formal needs assessments or spend time thinking about whether or not training is the solution to their performance problems. This means you run the risk of misdiagnosing a problem and wasting time and money. A properly conducted assessment will lead directly to an informed decision about whether a problem needs to be fixed in the first place and the most effective way to fix it. If training is NOT the answer, you will have all the information needed to recommend another solution.

CONSULTING

Here are the three most common reasons why our clients turn to us for help:

  1. To find the problem(s): In many cases, a business may be exhibiting problematic “symptoms” such as a decrease in sales, or cash-flow issues, and internal management is unable to pinpoint the source of the problem. In this case, we can observe the symptoms within your operations, conduct some research, and determine the root of the problem.
  2. To create the solution(s): In some cases, you may have a goal that you can’t achieve internally because there is either a skills gap or because it is simply not within your company’s core competencies. Hiring us can save time and money, and ultimately achieve a better results.
  3. Optimization: In some cases, your company may have grown very quickly and is faced with a flood of activity and systems that are no longer adequate. We can bring in a fresh perspective, evaluate any or all areas of your business, and determine the processes and procedures to increase productivity levels.

TRAINING

Here is why so many companies are increasing their support towards corporate training; and you should too:

  • Encourages loyalty: Employees will be more loyal to your company if your care for their personal growth and development no matter how small or large your organization. A 2013 survey by CareerBuilder states that 35 per cent of employees feel an increase in on-the-job training and development opportunities is a strong reason to stay loyal to their company.
  • Improves performance levels: If your employee receives the relevant training, s/he will be able to deliver better results and thus improves the company’s bottom-line
  • Ensures consistent sharing of information: All your employees get proper access to information, pertinent to the business, through the training sessions.
  • Allows you to hire from a wider talent pool: An effective training program allows your organization to embrace diversity and then develop succession planning.
  • Allows you to maintain a competitive edge: Through employee training, you keep your company competitive by keeping your people up-to-date with the ever changing business needs, skills requirements, and complex external environments.
