Undertaking any training program requires the dedication of time and resources. Without a careful evaluation of the results of a training session, a company would have no way of measuring their return on investment and testing whether the training has made a difference to staff.

Evaluation training is a critical step in the training process because judging the reaction of members of staff will quickly tell management how well the training was received and whether it was enjoyed. These reactions can help a company plan more effective training programs in the future.

Careful evaluation of a training session can also give management a clear indication of how much staff members learned and absorbed in a specific training session. It will also help management to ascertain whether the desired outcomes of the training session have been achieved in terms of changed behaviors, improved skills, and altered attitudes.
