Training Employees to Train Others Can Be a Career Boosting Advancing Benefit

Training is a significant expense for employers. But according to LinkedIn’s 2022 Workplace Learning Report, having “opportunities to learn and grow” is the top driver of a great work culture. A potential solution is to train employees to then train their colleagues and co-workers.

U.S. Rubber Recycling, a sustainable fitness flooring manufacturer in California, is another company that has successfully leveraged the value of peer-to-peer training.

“Because what we do is unique and the equipment in our shop is modified to our needs, the most efficient way to bring everyone up to speed is for senior team members to train junior employees,” said Leslie Morales, the firm’s head of operations. Trainees—and future trainers—include workers with criminal histories, whom the company has hired through its BounceBack! second-chance program.
