Training & Development for the growth-focused organization
What’s your strategic workforce plan? Do your employees have the right skills for today, and tomorrow? Businesses today are enhancing their Learning and Development initiatives to engage generational learners, embrace technology, and create paths for career-minded employees.
Employee training and development programs help organizations:

The Learning Management System (LMS) is integral to effective employee training
An organization’s Learning Management System is the indispensable engine that propels all e-learning efforts. An LMS manages all training, data, and delivery of eLearning content across the organization. From measuring training adoption and retention, to evaluating KPIs and ROIs, an LMS is an essential tool in the effort to develop employees and reach the organization’s goals and objectives.
Equally important is building a learning culture within the organization. Employees of all ages are interested in learning new skills and developing their career path. As technology advances, it is vital to both businesses and employees to continue to learn. For organizations to remain competitive its important to have a skilled workforce. And this competitive advantage also transcends to how well a company can attract and retain top talent. Building a learning culture will help.
RTG Solutions Group’s Training and Development team helps businesses establish or expand their LMS platform to manage and improve employee training outcomes.
When planning to add or update an LMS platform often triggers many questions. How do we pick the best LMS? How do we know which meets all our needs? How do we evaluate what will work best for our company? How do we implement the LMS and ensure employee adoption? All of these questions are valid and often voiced among training planning teams. And RTG Solutions Group can help manage through the uncertainty to reach your goals.
What makes RTG Solutions Group an effective Learning & Development partner?
We believe that one size, or training approach, does not fit every organization. Our approach is unique. The following are key aspects in our approach to help businesses reach their employee training and development goals.
Conduct a training needs analysis
First, we conduct a thorough Training Needs Analysis to outline the current state of employee training and determine immediate and long-term training needs of the organization.
Assess and plan training efforts as a process
We incorporate our process improvement methodologies into our Learning & Development efforts. Outlining the training process and communicating it, eliminates confusion and chaos of employees and managers. A streamlined training process ensures repeatability, retention and adoption.
Develop training execution model with KPIs and ROI
Following the Training Needs Analysis, we prioritize the findings based on business needs, ease of implementation and short and long-term impact to the organization. The comprehensive go-forward plan highlights specific KPIs and ROI, including implementation milestones, accountabilities and completion dates. There is planned follow-up to review progress at 30-, 60- and 90-day increments. Measurement of the training initiative and process is imperative to ensuring a successful training program.
