Based on her observation, Dr. Brown found that very often, training participants leave workshops, and never utilize the materials or tools they learned in the training session. Unfortunately, there is often no follow-up to verify lessons learned. Having witnessed non-productive company spending, ATCG's offers a unique 90-day follow-up component to measure participant learning experiences and assess how they are applying that learning to their job performance. This component not only helps companies identify an employee's unrealized potential, but the overall learning experience will have a direct impact on productivity.
