It has been established that corporate training bring about many benefits. Yet, with implications of being tough, dry and boring, the word ‘training’ alone is able to give employees chills down their spines. How can we increase the appeal of corporate training for employees then?


Here are 4 tips to increase the appeal of corporate training and make corporate training into something that employees will voluntarily sign up for and attend:

  1. Engage in experienced trainers
  2. Allow your employees to participate in the selection of the training program
  3. Engage in interactive training programs
  4. Eliminate unnecessary training


  1. Engage in experienced trainers

With the countless number of trainers available nowadays, how can organisations know which trainer to hire? Given that time is of the essence, training should be focused more on the quality rather than quantity. Rather than opting for a training program that is longer in duration, it is better to look for experienced trainers – trainers who are well-versed in the specific industry and are able to provide recent real-life situations as case studies for the particular training program. Experienced trainers are also usually able to summarise important information into short yet punchy points for easy memory retention.


  1. Allow your employees to participate in the selection of the training program

By allowing employees to participate in the selection of the training program, it increases their involvement, hence increasing their motivation to participate more actively in the training. Different employees have different learning preferences. Considering the opinions of each employee will also provide an organisation the opportunity to collect and have access to data that will aid them in making informed decisions for future training programs.

  1. Engage in interactive training programs

1 out of every 3 employees say that uninspiring content is a barrier to their learning. Hence, it is critical to source for training programs that are entertaining and fun. Examples of interactive activities include having case studies or group discussions. Interactive training have many benefits. Not only are they able to bridge the gap between knowledge and application, they also allow for real-time feedback. Furthermore, interactive training enable employees to be more daring and go through the process of trial and error during decision-making processes of these interactive activities.


  1. Eliminate unnecessary training

As mentioned at the start, training can be something that elicit negative feelings from employees. By sending employees to many training, it can greatly increase their reluctance to participate in future training, greatly reducing the potential of any valuable training programs. Hence, it is critical to pinpoint what the employees need to know and avoid sending them to training that are not relevant to them.


To really know what your employees look out for in corporate training programs, listen to them. Follow the above-mentioned tips to ensure successful training sessions and reduced possibilities of your employees becoming bored and developing an indifferent attitude towards corporate training. This will increase overall efficiency of employee productivity and increase the fun factor in corporate training.
