Understanding Training And Development By: Todd Vatalaro
Session 1, 2.1
I have been a computer science teacher for the past two years. I have
also been involved in curriculum development for Sacramento City College.
Roughly three years ago I was invited to be aboard member for a multi
million-dollar multi media project for Los Rios Community College District.
I hope with my past experience I will be able to share what I have learned
with the cohort.
I would like to learn more about the financial impact of a company that has
poor to no training compared to a company that focus on T&D. I would also like
to look at high turn over of employees and the positive impact a training
department can have. I would like to develop a web-based training course.
How does a company know if it’s training is effective?
How much money should a company spend on employee training?
Has corporate America taken training seriously?
