To establish real credibility and demonstrate value, learning and development professionals need to measure whether or not participants actually applied what they learned once back on the job (Level 3 evaluation), and show evidence of Level 4 business results.
Yet according to an ASTD research study, only 55% of organizations evaluate some learning programs at Level 3 and an even smaller 37% of organizations evaluate some programs at Level 4. This raises the question: “If conducting Level 3 and Level 4 evaluations is critical to establishing credibility and demonstrating value, how come so few organizations are doing it?” The unfortunate answer is that most L&D professionals are not savvy in the art and science of creating Level 3 and Level 4 evaluations nor do they have much experience doing it.
Our staff is ever-changing and growing. This year we have hired several new staff members.
At the Geo Group, we constantly strive to raise the standards of quality. In the spirit of community and to promote understanding, we are now reaching out to explain the “how”s and “why”s of our processes, starting with our in-country review.
Some agencies love to write blog articles that are designed to make you question whether or not you are using the right agency. They tell you that they are “compliant” with some obscure export edict or European standard. Then they ask you “Is your agency compliant?”
Full service translation agencies make sure your documents are translated and formatted correctly; however, we also work with you to protect your documents and to make sure your company is compliant with relevant rules and regulations.
That is not a rhetorical question, but a very important one when you consider how vital translations are to your export business and your growth overseas. The quality of the translated documents and/or software you provide to your clients in their native language impacts your company’s image.
Many advanced translation buyers are aware that foreign languages can be longer than English. What some may not know is that length does not always translate to more words, but the actual length of the text itself.
