As a trainer, this is one of the more common questions I receive...

Manager
How much training a week should I give my employees?

My Response
We typically recommend between 1 and 2 hours a week. It is always much better to provide your employees a slow, steady, & consistent stream of information over an extended period of time. One hour a week for 40 weeks can be much more effective than one 40-hour week in altering the behavior and improving the skills of your employees.

Additional Thoughts
There is always a place for multi-day training sessions, but they are most effective in teaching a specific skill rather than relaying general knowledge.
