Program length According to the BLS, learning programs typically take 1 to 6 years to complete. Most programs require you to complete a minimum of 2,000 hours of work, but others may require up to 12,000 hours. So in my work, people tell me that it takes about a year to master my tasks. How long does the training last? The length of training depends on the skills required for the job.
It usually does not exceed 6 months. Very few new employees try their best and give their best right away. In fact, according to an article published in Training Industry Quarterly, it takes at least 1 or 2 years before an employee is “fully productive”. This means that even after an employee has been hired, they may not be as productive as the previous employee for 2 years.
You'll lose potential value for months or years after your previous employee has left. While most human resources professionals understand the need to expand onboarding, a CareerBuilder survey found that two-thirds of hiring managers and human resources professionals spend less than a month onboarding new employees. Half of the respondents said that they only spent a week or less on onboarding. Having people do the paperwork and training so they can start working sooner may not be the best path to employee productivity and contribution.
