- Why we need to train employees in the first place (hint: think Sentencing Guidelines);
- How often you need to be training;
- Training the right people on the right things at the right time;
- The benefits of in-person training;
- How to evaluate your training program;
- Keys to measuring retention and understanding;
- Overcoming training challenges;
- Ideas to make training fun (This…is…Jeopardy!);
- Legal implications of your training; and
- How to keep your training program out of hot water.
