Our selection process consists of an interview with our SGEi recruitment team and a review of the potential trainer’s previous experience and projects. Candidates are asked to submit samples of work that emphasize their abilities to deliver classroom training, to coach in a live operation, and to work on business improvement strategies. The following are examples to be submitted by the candidate:
- Training in a classroom or structured setting
- On-the-job coaching in a live operation where feedback is utilized to correct behaviors
- Consulting to strategically improve a business
References will be requested to support submittals. Candidates then interview with our VP of Operations and VP of Culture & Learning in order to highlight personal strengths and goals for the future.
All prospective trainers are required to attend a trainer certification workshop that determines their fit with SGEi’s culture and expectations. During the workshop, attendees will participate in a number of group discussions, activities, and presentations, as well as deliver an individual presentation provided by the SGEi team. SGEi executives and master trainers are engaged to facilitate and assess potential candidates. The two-day trainer certification workshop is hosted in Las Vegas, NV. Agendas, logistics, and expectations are provided to attendees prior to the workshop. Information will be shared with prospective trainers about the SGEi Training Academy, clients, and on-going development and evaluations.
SGEi development events offer trainers an opportunity to learn from the best, to gain access to recent research, and to share their successes and failures with other training professionals. A certified trainer’s experience will include attending conferences, joining discussions, shadowing successful trainers in the field, and reviewing the latest insights and research from multiple industries.
The purpose of the evaluation is to reinforce the culture and expectations of the SGEi trainer. Throughout the year, audits are conducted where an executive or master trainer will shadow and observe the trainer in the field with clients. Trainers are provided feedback and scored on a number of deliverables and SGEi requirements. In addition, a survey is sent to clients to assess their SGEi trainer. Scores are tabulated every six months, and trainers receive an overall score and feedback on their performance.
