Corporate trainer

A corporate trainer is a specialized system, and thus keep the organization and its members from reaching their goals. An effective corporate trainer can remove these impediments and be very valuable to the organization.

In order to effectively support the team, corporate trainers must work as a business partner of the organization they are supporting. In other words, trainers should not operate in a bubble - removed from the realities facing their clients. Either internal or external trainers can be partners, depending on the needs of the organization.

Internal trainers have the advantage of knowing the organization and employees well. They are more likely to have a long-term relationship with the organization and continue to support skills improvement over time. External trainers have the advantage of an outside perspective. They can effectively deliver training or intervene in a way that is difficult for internal trainers.

Trainers can help employees learn new skills but to have an impact on broader organizational change, they need the support of senior management.

Some employees become corporate trainers through their expertise in a particular subject matter and an interest in instruction. Others have formal education in Human Resources Development. There are two professional organizations that help guide this profession:

The corporate trainer role rose in the consciousness of some people in the US after Richard Hatch, a corporate trainer by trade, won the Survivor reality television competition. Other corporate trainers include Simon Davie from Sliding Doors Australasia, who launched the world's first Finish at Four campaign designed to increase awareness of the risks of overwork and workplace stress by encouraging workers to finish at 4pm on October 12, 2007.
