Still looking for a good New Year’s resolution? One that’s going to reap big dividends for both you and your future projects? Why not resolve to begin the new year by hiring a professional temporary trainer for your organization.
My experience as a corporate trainer and a training department director has shown me one thing. The best training curriculum is worthless if you don’t have the right trainer.
Here are the top five reasons why a professional temporary trainer is the right move for you in 2018.
1. They're Flexible: You can trust that the right temporary training provider is going to be by your side no matter what. Plans and programs can quickly run into issues (an in-house trainer gets sick, needs time off for personal issues, or runs into some other problem). If you’re rolling out a new program or hiring a lot of employees, you can easily schedule temporary trainers to make sure you have the talent development you need.
2. They're Convenient: A professional temporary trainer is just a quick phone call away. Imagine how it would feel to have an experienced trainer at your fingertips, ready to take on a long-term delivery or a short one day assignment, all while adding value to your delivery talent pool.
3. They're Well Qualified: Take it from me. You want the best when it comes to training facilitation. Several years ago, my Fortune 500 employer used internal trainers to launch a pilot program focused on leadership development. Let me share with you the lesson I learned the hard way from participant feedback:
4. They Save Time: Any business that can maximize time in 2018 is going to have a good year. What I have found is a professional temporary trainer is a great person to collaborate with when developing programs, delivering training, and creating T3 efforts.
5. They're Cost Effective: You might think that an experienced temporary trainer is going to come at a high price. But they’re actually more cost effective than retaining an entire qualified training staff. When I was working with a limited training budget, I actually had a 35% cost savings when I hired professional temporary trainers to meet specific training needs.
