We know that successful training is the key to higher employee retention, engagement, and motivation. According to one LinkedIn Workforce Learning Report, 93% of employees said they would stay at their company long-term if it invested in their careers. Despite careful resource allocation, many companies still find that their training is not (or only partially) effective in achieving their goals. This is usually due to some common training and development problems.
