Technologies That Improve The Effectiveness Of Corporate Training
Efficient corporate training has been known to bring dual benefits to employees and their employers.
As Sir Richard Branson says:
“Train your employees so that they can leave. Treat them so that they choose not to.”
The right training can help improve the productivity levels of your team while improving employee retention for numbers for your organisation. In fact, the right training program can help your organisation attract and retain the top talent in your industry.
While the high cost involved in traditional corporate training has historically prevented smaller businesses to venture into this territory, times have changed. With the rise of eLearning, businesses of all shapes and sizes now have access to pocket-friendly employee training tools that offer an efficient training solution.
This blog post will talk about a few such technologies, that will help you deliver effective and meaningful training to your valued employees, without breaking the bank. Let’s jump right in:
Learning Management Systems
A learning management system, as the name suggests, is a software (mostly cloud-based) that allows organisations to host and deploy training material to their employees. A great learning management system helps organisations to provide a uniform and consistent training experience to their employees, regardless of their location.
Moreover, top learning management systems come loaded with some nifty tracking capabilities that tell you how individual learners are interacting with the course material provided to them. These abilities, combined with assessment capabilities of an LMS provide organisations and instructional designers with the necessary knowledge required to maximise the effectiveness of their training.
Mobile Learning Technology
Drawing on my point about offering a consistent training experience to a distributed workforce, mobile learning technology has made corporate training accessible and scalable.
The technology allows learners to access learning content anywhere, anytime. While organisations have used this feature of mobile learning technology to turn downtime into training time, mobile learning technology has other benefits as well.
For instance, mobile learning technology delivers training content in a format that most learners are used to consuming every day. By enabling learners to choose their own training schedule, mobile learning improves the learner’s motivation to keep progressing with their learning efforts.
At the same time, mobile learning enables organisations to deliver training to more employees, without having to invest substantially on a training infrastructure. Businesses can now simply add more users to their mobile-based LMS for a minimal fee.
It is safe to say that the average internet user watches at least one video every day. Taking advantage of the same, video-powered learning allows learners to consume learning content from a medium they are already used to.
Training videos are able to explain complex concepts in a simple manner, closely replicating the experience of in-classroom, instructor-led sessions. At the same time, videos enable learners to easily consume training content any time, whether it is during their long commute to work, or during the weekend.
Another great advantage of video-powered learning is that videos can be saved and played any number of times to revise difficult concepts.
Gamification technology allows instructional designers to introduce “game” elements to their training. The added gratification from a reward system or a level system acts as an additional boost in the motivation of learners to keep moving forward with their training. Other gamification elements such as leaderboards add a touch of healthy competition that further keeps the learners motivated.
Thanks to eLearning, corporate training is now more accessible and effective than ever before. Organisations, regardless of their size, have no excuses to not invest in their employees. Not to forget, training employees is not a liability, but an investment in their future, and the future of your organisation.
