Success Assessment

Our mission at TrainingPros is to provide our clients with the best possible learning and development talent. We also know it’s critical to place our consultants in the roles best suited to their skill sets and work requirements.

Our relationship managers do their research to understand project needs, company culture and work style, and the technical skills that are required.

TrainingPros has been dedicated to those priority missions spanning three decades. And our success rate for placements is extremely high. But laurel resting has never been our forte, and we recently implemented a new tool to close the gap even more to ensure the best possible working relationships between our clients and our consultants.

Technical Communication Service

Technical communication is a highly specialized skill. Hiring an experienced technical communications professional presents several benefits. They have expertise in producing content for a wide-range of industries with the ability to explain difficult concepts for all user groups and purposes such as manuals, procedures and other technical content. Additionally, they provide their unbiased point of view while reducing the burden on managers and developers. By incorporating professional touches to your content, technical communicators enhance the value of your company’s brand.

At TrainingPros, our technical communications professionals have 10 – 15 years of experience designing and developing content.

Instruction and Facilitation

Many years ago, all training was delivered in a face-to-face classroom setting. With the increase in global companies, more work forces interacting virtually, and the explosion of eLearning solutions, instructor-delivered training has decreased dramatically. However, the need for classroom delivery instruction remains and is unlikely to dwindle entirely.

Given the shift toward online learning, many organizations no longer maintain permanent instructional staff. TrainingPros has a talent pool with many professional instructors and facilitators who are available for short and longer-term engagements. Our instructors are skilled in delivering off-the-shelf training programs and are equally adept in leading coursework that is unique to your company. Our instructors also have the benefit of having worked with many organizations and are versed in the latest best practices on effective classroom-based learning.

Multi-Generations in the Workplace

Most people recognize issues between the generations in the work place exist, but all too often don’t know what to do about it. It is the first time in history we have four generations working side by side. If you don’t think generations matter, think about this…when asked when and where Kennedy died, Traditionalists (ages 70s and 80s) and Baby Boomers (ages mid 50s-60s) said Dallas, Texas of a gunshot, Generation Xer’s (ages 40s to mid 50s) said Martha’s Vineyard and a plane crash, and Millennials (ages 22-late 30s) said Kennedy who? With only 3% of Traditionalists still working full-time and Baby Boomers retiring at a rate of 10,000 per day in the U.S, Millennials will outnumber all other generations in the workplace in 2020.

These are the five main areas where generational issues cause the most challenges in the workplace: technology, authority, balance, loyalty and entitlement.
