Example of a participation post; Jennifer, I believe employee training programs should be evaluated on a regular basis to make sure employees are given the needed information to help an organization be successful. I currently work for ABC organization and an outside evaluation company audits our training program annually to make sure the employee training meets the needs of our organization.
