Canned vs. Customized Training
Written by: Joe Mangiardi, NES, Inc.
Sometimes a canned training program will suffice; other times your business requires a customized training program to achieve the desired results.
Why Some Businesses Prefer Customized Training
Customized training may not be necessary for all businesses. But if you view your company as a complex machine, the slightest imperfection in design or execution of workplace processes can lead to catastrophic and costly results. For a business to operate at its safest and most productive level, all components must function properly.
NES knows that every employer has in common the need to minimize risk—but this does not mean that every company is the same. When it comes to satisfying regulatory compliance requirements, many other Environmental Health & Safety consulting and training firms indistinctively blanket their clients with nothing but cookie-cutter programs. This is due in large part to a lack of knowledgeable, experienced staff who could interpret individual scenarios and implement personalized adjustments.
NES Can Provide Canned or Customized Training
NES’ highly qualified team of consultant and instructor professionals can tailor services to conform to clients’ unique circumstances and specific needs. While canned training programs may be used to meet and satisfy many initial and refresher regulatory training requirements, a customized training allows your employees to be trained on hazards, procedures, operations, etc. that impact their day to day job duties. The finished product is the communication of information relevant to what you do at your place of business. See the difference:
Canned training programs have a cookie-cutter feel to them; often, this will suffice, but sometimes your employees need more.
