Is there a gap between your training and your results?

If so, you're not alone. Take a look at these statistics....

Robert Brinkerhoff reports that only 15% of people were able to achieve sustained new behaviors after a training session. 

Only 25% of respondents to a 2010 survey reported that training improved employees’ performance. MCKINSEY & CO. 

43% of employees say their training is somewhat, not very, or not at all effective in helping them succeed at work. IPSOS, 2018

To drastically reduce the amount of time it takes employees to adopt new behavior, close your training gap.

If you're already investing heavily in your safety training... If you're tired of saying the same thing to your employees... If you're frustrated that they keep making stupid mistakes, then we should talk. Because your employees are also tired of hearing you say the same thing. They're also frustrated that they keep making stupid mistakes when they know better. No one wants to get hurt on the job.

WHERE IS YOUR TRAINING GAP?

Front Line Buy-In

Do your front line employees enjoy their safety training? Are they active participants taking a leading roll in implementing what they've learned?

Actionable Training

Does your training set your front line up for success by helping them identify how to apply safety procedures to the reality of their job and their day?

Consistent Delivery

Do your safety managers have the tools they need to deliver training consistently across multiple site locations?

Follow Through

Do your front line employees get the long-term support and accountability they need to turn their knowledge into every day behavior? 

We can help you significantly increase the effectiveness of your existing training and close the gap between your training and your employees' safety behavior.

CASE STUDIES

LOCAL GOVERNMENT

Every New Year millions of people make resolutions to change their behavior so they can get healthier and happier. But over 90% of those resolutions will fail.  

We set out to change that record. A local government gave 34 employee the opportunity to change their habits as part of a New Year’s Resolution Habit Challenge.

OUR RESULTS  

  • 153%: Increase in Targeted Behavior  
  • 61%: Increase in Confidence
  • 69%: Participation

CONSTRUCTION

The goal was to provide 53 of their foreman with tools to change their behavior and to let them know the company cared about their well-being on the jobsite and at home. 

This training initiative straddled both health and safety behaviors, so that the foreman could have the flexibility to target the behavior they felt would make the biggest improvement in their life.

OUR RESULTS  

  • 125%: Increase in Targeted Behavior  
  • 41%: Increase in Confidence 
  • 79%: Participation

OIL AND GAS

A midstream Oil and Gas company needed to train 1,000 hourly employees on becoming better safety leaders in a 3 month period. But employees have heard the same information multiple times and can tune out safety messages.  

Our objective was to develop an engaging 4 hour training their safety staff could deliver and that was based on existing company vision, values, and materials.

OUR RESULTS

  • 75%: Increase in Targeted Behavior 
  • 32%: Increase in Confidence
  • 68%: Participation

HEALTH/STRESS

A few months after the pandemic started, employees were asked to choose a behavior that would help them cope with the current crisis.

Habits included exercise, meditation, reading, drinking less soda, eating healthier, getting more sleep, and more.

OUR RESULTS  

  • 182%: Increase in Targeted Behavior  
  • 88%: Participation
  • In a follow up survey 5 months later, employees reported not only sticking with it but also being very confident they would continue to stick with it.

LEADERSHIP

Supervisors at a mechanical contractor company had previously received leadership training. They had adopted some new behaviors, but there was room for more growth.

Attendees participated in recreating their training, sharing their insights with their coworkers, and then practicing key leadership behaviors around communication and productivity in our post-training Habit Challenge.

OUR RESULTS  

  • 82%: Increase in Targeted Behavior  
  • 83%: Participation

DRIVING

Participants had already been through extensive driving training. They did not need more driving training. They needed an opportunity to practice the driving skills they already knew they needed, so that it became a habit.

“There was at least one occasion on slippery roads in which this extra distance could have played a factor in eliminating an accident.”

OUR RESULTS

  • 120% ROI
  • 157%: Increase in Targeted Behavior 
  • 83%: Participation

HOW WE WORK WITH OUR CLIENTS

We work with you to co-create and implement a customized training solution so that your safety training sticks and your employees create the habits that will protect themselves and your bottom line.

Employee Events

We've got you covered for events of all sizes. From small group trainings to company wide all-hands events, our trainings engage employees from beginning to end and they leave with a plan of action for how to make a new safety habit.

Train the Trainer

Whether it's our own training on creating habits or whether we're modifying your existing training to be habit friendly, we can deliver training in-person, online, or train your employees to deliver the training for you.

Consulting

Every company is different. We'll help you evaluate the habits you need to create, how you're already communicating with your employees, and help you develop a plan for changing your employees' behavior once and for all.

Habit Challenges

Knowing what to do is the easy part. Our Signature Habit Challenges provide your employees with the support and accountability needed to stick to it until new neural pathways are formed in the brain and the behavior becomes a habit.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

“The approach Sharon advocates works.… It is working for me! Also, the process of identifying what you value most brings perspective on why developing this new habit is important as it acts as a constant reminder each and every time I practice my new action or behavior.” COO

It has been fun and exciting to see myself adapt and continue to change as I grow older. 


“It was great to reprogram my belief that new habits are almost impossible. Several other things I was working on concurrently (without the structure) improved as well. There was a global improvement in my commitment to making changes. 


"The feed back and encouragement are what makes this work. It’s hard to break bad habits and develops good habits no matter how committed you are."


Thank you so much! New habits have just started falling into place without even thinking about it since starting your technique!


"Several other things I was working on concurrently (without the structure) improved as well. There was a global improvement in my commitment to making changes."


"I just couldn’t seem to make it happen on my own. There was always an excuse or obstacle in the way."


"It helped me focus on driving and the training I received when I first learned to drive. My wife comments that a I drive better now."


It's not necessarily the habit itself, but the ability to create and think in a more safety conscious (way).

OUR PHILANTHROPY

Sharon founded Change Gangs: Virtual Giving Circles in 2010, and it's her labor of love. A Virtual Giving Circle is simple. They pool their small donations ($25/month) with the donations of other people who also care about the same cause. They become a donation team. They've now donated more than $100,000 to charities around the world.

She also holds the Guinness World Record for the Longest Line of Toothbrushes. As part of a charity event that collected 55,000 toothbrushes and 17,000 tubes of toothpaste for Colorado children, they created a line of toothbrushes 3.5 miles long made up of 42,000 toothbrushes. Check out the fun photos from the event and discover the children's organizations we were able to support at http://milesofsmilescolorado.com/
