Successful Employee Training Explained
Discover the best ways to offer your employees the training they need.
Lack of training in the workplace has been proven to lead to a disengaged workforce. This initiates a chain reaction of negative consequences that cost businesses serious money. Disengaged employees are less productive and more likely to call in sick when they’re not, and will not stay at the company for long.
The Benefits Of Employee Training
This chapter explains the many benefits of successful training. The main benefit is, of course, that training improves the efficiency of the employee. However, there are many more benefits that are equally important. Employee engagement has also shown a significant increase in employees that undergo training. The retention rates also improve, helping the organization’s financial state and overall productivity. It is also pointed out that training helps a company remain competitive and attract the best candidates. All these culminate in increased revenue for the company and higher standards for all employees.
What Does Successful Employee Training Entail?
Successful employee training is not always an exact science, but there are many things one can do to nurture it. According to this chapter, one of the most important things you can do is explain the reasons behind everything you share with your employees. It would be best if you also kept in mind that everyone’s training preferences are different and that different people respond to different stimuli. Creating opportunities for your employees to practice is also an integral part of the training. It is a good idea also to have some reward involved to incentivize them further. Since this reflects your company’s culture, you need to have your managers the benefits of training and learning. And let’s not forget the key role that feedback plays in this, as long as it is personalized. The feedback that comes from your employees is also valuable, and you should treat it with the appropriate respect. Another important element is that your employees’ training opportunities should often occur to help keep the training culture alive.
The Best Employee Training Methods
This chapter describes what training methods are best for specific situations, and how to best apply. On-the-job training is a great way to train employees on skills they need for the day-to-day obligations. Instructor-Led Training works best for shorter terms of training, especially when there is a location available. Virtual Instructor-Led Training is a great alternative to ILT when remote training needs to occur. Online training, or eLearning, is self-paced learning delivered online without the need for real-time participation. Blended learning combines virtual instructor-led training and eLearning to get the best benefits of both. Finally, mobile learning is by far the most flexible method, working best for mobile employees.
