In the current recession with downsizing, restructuring, global competition and technological advances we find ourselves busier than ever. We respond to increasing and changing work demands by multi-tasking and working longer hours. Over time this impacts adversely on our well-being: as we become more stressed we become less productive; our performance deteriorates and we may even burn-out.

This is probably one of the most commonly asked questions prior to making a commitment to any large investment and to an organisation-wide project. Training can be evaluated but, more importantly, we believe it SHOULD be evaluated.
