December 2015
Does this sound familiar?  You invest thousands of dollars into your safety training each year.  You gather your team monthly and present life-saving information to a room full of slouched body, zoned-out employees that are probably thinking more about the ham sandwich they are having for lunch than how not to cut their hand off.  You purchase computer equipment so your employees can take online training courses at their own time, but rather than taking the time to learn, they click through the course at lightning speed and make best guesses at the correct answers.

We can talk a long time about employee engagement, adult learning theory, and creating better training fact, we've done that on this blog.  But, at the end of the day, employees tend to be apathetic when it comes to training.  According to Fast Company magazine, to employees, training is often viewed as irrelevant, dull, and compliance-oriented.  Leaders sometimes make the mistake of thinking training is a waste of time and money when they don't see dramatic results right away.

More than likely it's not the training content or subject matter itself that is the issue, it's the approach of the organization.  And when U.S. organizations are spending over $70 billion a year on training, a growth of 15% in 2014, it's time to pay attention to how workplace safety training and employee development is valued in the workplace.
