FallingMarket main Full Approaches to Training in a Tough Economy’ on @DriveThruHROn Friday, June 4, 2010 I was once again a guest on DriveThruHR. It is a show that takes place Monday through Friday from 12pm - 12:30 EST, discussing anything related to the Human Resources industry.

On this episode we discussed doing “Training in a tough economy.” Many organizations, small shops and consultancies are being hit hard and Training has traditionally been considered a operational expense. In tough markets it is the first to go and the last to be brought back.

Some points that were discussed:

  • Recognizing what gaps and issues you have with your organization for Organizational Development and for Training,
  • Do an overall assessment at an organizational level, executive level and employee level,
  • Assess your people, your organization, resources and budgets,
  • Create a plan,
  • Look at what is key to maintaining and improving your business,
  • Why is it such a challenge for an organization to have, develop and deliver training programs,
  • Low cost resources for training,
  • Major League Baseball (MLB) and Spring training,
  • Are organizations in “survival” mode or are they ready to ‘survive and thrive’ after the smoke clears.

Do you have any resources for free or low-cost training that you use? Any thoughts or added parts to share?
