In our previous articles, we have determined the importance of training our employees in ethics, and of spreading among them a culture of respect, honesty and transparency within the organization. More and more companies are generating and investing in these spaces, because of its importance.
However, how are we measuring if this training, workshop or ethics talk was effective? How do we know that the employees have understood what we have shared?
Most organizations use, as an indicator of success, the number of employees trained, or the number of man hours of ethics training: “the more people we cover, the better ethics we will have.” We must understand that this does not necessarily happens.
So, how to measure if, indeed, the guidelines have been understood by the worker? Our recommendation: once the training is done, ask them to carry out practical exercises: provide hypothetical situations to answer how they would act, how they would respond, what measures they would take. This would enable us to identify if they understood our guidelines, and also how they would use them in everyday cases.
How else does this contributes? As feedback for the content of our training. Identify those aspects where there are more wrong answers, will allow us establish the weakest points, and emphasize them in the following spaces. This way we will be able to have, every time, a more effective training.
