I was doing some benchmarking the other day between a few different organizations. One question that was asked was, what are the "no-brainer" groups of employees to train? (And there may be a second question, what are the no-brainer topics to train, like leadership, ethics, sexual harassment, etc).
To me, the obvious groups are:
- new employees;
- high potential people;
- call center employees;
- sales people; and
- anyone who has to have certification or compliance;
- anyone who has to demonstrate a mastery level (like a pilot, although this differs from organization to organization).
What are other obvious classes of people that should be part of a formal learning program?
