  • HR Magazine, January 2009: Reduce the travel budget for the training - can the training be done online via webinar?  We live in a virtual world- grab a webcam for $50 and save on your airfare.   Keep the business going - instead of taking everyone out of business for a half-day, try to separate the training into two shifts, so productivity stays steady and everyone receives the training. Brown bag it - If you're running an all-day training, don't feel you have to cater in lunch.  Additionally, consider holding "lunch and learn" meetings.  Hold open one-hour trainings/discussions on a topic and people can voluntarily join and bring a brown bag for lunch. Put your training online, so development happens On-Demand .  If you've read my last few posts, you know this is an issue I feel strongly about.  For instance, give http://mbtithinkbox.com a try. Create a company wiki where employees can share their knowledge
