When employees are not performing their jobs up to par, managers and supervisors start to search for solutions to correct the problem. One conclusion managers and supervisors can come to when employees are having performance problems is that some sort of training can correct the problem. Managers and supervisors assume that offering training to the employees can help them learn the skills and acquire the knowledge they need to perform their daily job functions more efficiently and effectively.

In some cases, training can be the answer. It depends on what the performance problem is. In other cases, it is going to take more than having employees attend some training to correct the underlying issue or root cause of the problem. Bottomline is when training needs to occur, the discussion of what to do to document and track that training needs to be had.

To create training reports you will need to get some background information: Who, What, Where, When, How?

Training records and reporting

Who needs the training? What are they being trained on? Where did the training occur? When did the training occur? How did the training occur or what where the the results of the training? Beyond this however you will need to collate the information into an actionable format.

  1. Of course if your training efforts are entirely offline or in person and you need to manually document those efforts, then you might still need the old fashioned paper and pen/pencil approach or even manually collecting documentation in an Excel report. While these methods work for some organizations, we must recommend against only relying on these as many disasters have easily wiped out such records. Consider using an online training management system like eLeaP to help you organize this process.
