Findings: One effective and cost-effective way to monitor and improve the effectiveness of training and education in the workplace is to involve expert peers, subject matter experts, and managers in a mentoring or coaching capacity. Originality/value: The article shows a cost-effective way to monitor and improve the effectiveness of training and education in the workplace.
