About the book

The training and development needs of any workforce vary dramatically between the generations and levels even so far as the style of communication needed to be effective.At the same time training budgets are tighter than ever before and training departments are increasing marginalised as informal learning in a cyber workplace grows. So how can you tackle the challenges of this environment effectively?

Complete Training looks at the employee life cycle and posits a series of training challenges and opportunities relevant across each stage - from new hires to the éminence grise of the organisation - the objective is to enable learning and development practitioners to build individual capability and an organisation with a memory, continually learning from its own endeavours. By looking at how learning organisations succeed, complete training seeks to re-position L&D as central to the business, central to strategy and central to the organization's mission.

More about Robin Hoyle

Robin's work constantly asks you to challenge your preconceptions of what good training should be about. He excels in questioning the attitudes of the status quo and accepted thinking that has allowed much of L&D to lack the innovation it needs. 'Complete Training: From recruitment to retirement' is no exception and is highly recommended reading for everyone in the industry.
