It's really really funny.
I know of Training Companies whose Trainers are made to claim (who dares ask for proof from the Trainers?) on the floor that their training interventions reduced attrition in client companies, but when it comes to their own Trainers they haven't been able to reduce attrition at all. Many Trainers are leaving sooo soon and that too "hurt" .
One of the reason is that most Training Companies (my previous experience and of my network of trainers experiences tell me) don't have any HR processes at all. The Owners / Franchisees run Training Companies like "lalas" with autocratic form of leadership. They don't even let their teams know how much business they do. These are the same guys who 'teach' client participants that other styles of leadership should be used.
Another reason is payments of dues...
I remember a hilarious incident.... I and the Training Co's BD Manager, were observers to a training program being delivered by the Master Trainer (Owner /Co-Chairman too!!!) of the Training Company I was associated with. The program was for Intelenet and the topic was "Execution".
The grand statement made to participants (most of them Sales and Operation guys) of this organisation by the Master Trainer was "How motivated would you feel if your incentives or salary doesn't reach you by the 30th of the month?". "Would you really be on "fire" (drive the execution) or would you loose interest in execution?" The participants nodded a "NO".
We observers both looked at each other and laughed (we were at the behind of the room). The fact was this Training Company never paid on time. The salaries / training fees were paid by the end of the next month and the incentives weren't paid to the BD's even after 6 months and that too after reducing what was agreed.
Talk about "Preaching exactly opposite of what you do". And that too by so-called Master Trainer and the Owner.
Do you know of any other reason?????? Do share as comment.
Do you know of Training Companies who have HR processes and are ethical and true first to their teams... do share as comment?
