The Value of On-the-Job Training

August 9, 2017

Would you like to take a guess at how much companies in the United States spend on teaching and learning development per employee?
 
$100? Nope.
 
$250? Much higher!
 
$500? Keep guessing.
 
$1,000? You’re getting warmer!
 
According to the Association for Talent Development, organizations on average invest $1,208 per individual on training and development. The dollar amount equates to $165 billion spent annually, which is more than the gross domestic product (GDP) for the top 15 countries combined! It’s not just money, but time. Employees on average receive 32 hours of learning per year. 

The numbers reveal training is a priority. You cannot have a successful business without a strong and trusted foundation. That’s why Turning Technologies provides easy-to-use learning technology to improve the learning experience in the workplace. 
 

TurningPoint audience response systems promote interactive teaching through a variety of polling tools, including Anywhere and Self-Paced.

Anywhere Polling
 
Turn all types of learning material into interactive experiences and poll over top of web pages, videos documents or any application. 
 
  • Create and load question lists in advance, or ask questions on-the-fly
  • View who has and hasn’t responded with a response grid
     
Self-Paced Polling
 
This allows the team to respond to assessments, evaluations and surveys at their own pace and revisit questions as needed.
 
  • Ask up to 250 questions and deliver 20 different test versions
  • Schedule a specific amount of time or an exact time for assessment completion  
 
By utilizing TurningPoint, you create a memorable learning experience that encourages participant collaboration while collecting real-time, meaningful data to confirm retention.
