56% of HR Managers consider training and development to be an essential business enabler.

People are the biggest and most important asset for an organization. And, just like the attention given to technology and machinery to keep it at top performance, investment in employee development is critical for organizational success.
Yet, staff development is often less strategic than it should be and even becomes a lost effort among the rapid pace of day-to-day business priorities. Then, some organizations resist training initiatives altogether because they fear people will leave the organization after they’ve invested in their skill development.
Either scenario is potentially devastating for a business, especially considering the investments made to recruit, hire and onboard employees. When, in fact, investing in their people gives a company an edge in recruiting and retaining top talent.
Research indicates 70% of employees say that training and development opportunities influence their decision to stay with a company.

We Engage Learners with Active Learning
NuPaths’ Active Learning RotationsTM creates a learning experience that goes beyond the traditional whole group instruction that are a standard approach for many educational and training settings.
Research shows that, on average, learners forget 70% of what we teach within 24 hours of the training experience.

Many traditional models of training put the the learner in a passive role, as a recipient of knowledge. No wonder knowledge and skill retention is normally so low! Instead, NuPaths designs learning so that learners are active participants. Research shows that active learning increases engagement and leads to much better retention of new knowledge.
Instructors in an active learning classroom spend less time behind the podium and more time consulting and leading group activities.
Learners do more than just listen. They read, write, discuss, solve problems and be engaged in your personalized learning.
