In house training refers to any training that is held in company premise in order to educate, develop or improve employees’ skills, behavior and knowledge.

Here are some cases you obviously should use in-house training:

1. Introduction program



It’s the most common training in onboarding process when new hires come. Obviously this program should be conducted by internal coaches to educate new employee about corporate values, cultures and how to do new job. This course needs high reliability and consistency, which external training cannot offer.

2. Job rotation training



Job rotation is an inexpensive and effective HR management strategy. When a staff undertakes a different role in the company, he/she need trained new skills, knowledge to accomplish new responsibilities. In this case, the former position holder will be the best trainer for the new one.

3. On-the-job training




Even in the same role, it requires training for employees whenever a gap is found. When you found your team’s performance has stagnated or decreased, it’s time to give them training to bridge the gap. Sending them to a public scheduled course is a normal choice, but more specific training course focused on their problems is a wiser decision, especially when the cost is the most consideration.

4. Programs for a large number of employees




The number of employees is an important factor which can decide whether to use in-house training or public house training. If you need a training program for a group of 5 – 50 employees (for instance a health and safety training in construction and manufacturing industry), in-house training is clearly a better option. Individual training requirement should be sent to outside course.

5. Other cases you should consider

- When an in-house training program cost more than public-house training but it can be reused more times in the future.

-  When experts are available among your company, even they may be not the best experts in the industry. The best performers in your company can inspire other colleagues to improve themselves.

- When the program requires information security, you need to select the training providers more carefully.

In-house training is a win-win process for both employers and employees. Besides, it’s an effective way to show the company’s care about the needs of employees as well as the company’s commitment to continuous growing and improving. Of course, doing a training need analysis is always the initial step before conduct whatever kind of training. After each training program, you need to evaluate the results to adjust promptly. Ultimately, both in-house and public-house training share the goal of boosting employees’ productivity, right?
