Pass on the Learning

Pass on the learning. Since trainings can be expensive in some cases, have those staff members who went through it report back to the newsroom and provide a training session to the rest of the staff on what they learned.

Based on the Knight survey, 80% of journalists who received training said they shared it with others in the newsroom. “In all, 518 journalists said they trained a total of 18,641 others, an average of 36 trained per journalist,” as stated on page 9 of the report.

Making an investment in one training can permeate throughout the organization and lead to significant professional development changes for all your staff members.
