Why don’t employees cascade training?


Of course there are a number of reasons, principally time but what else? A lack of confidence? No training delivery skills? There must ne more. Also, where can I find key texts that have looked at this before?

I am keen to hear from your experiences. Thanks in advance. Mahmood

  1. Because there is nothing in it for them.
    When an employee gains experience or learns something he guards it jealously because having it increases the possibility that the company may need him.

    If he gives that information to someone else he will lose his perceived advantage.
    This will be for him a negative consequence.
    Another negative consequence will be that he will not be thanked for sharing his experience.

    The only way to get employees to share their individual experience and therefore increase the value of the whole of the workforce is to create the environment in which the employees will get a positive consequence for sharing.

  2. It’s all about Knowledge Management

    This is all connected with Knowledge Management. I did some work with Henley Management college abvout 2 years back on this subject and Peter’s right. The “organisation” what ever it may, has to create the environment whereby uit fosters knowledge sharing and learning from each others experiences.

    You couild try making contact with Henley.
