Most employee training programs fail to succeed due to several reasons such as they lack interest and information required to engage employees, the courses are way too lengthy, and they consist similar information that was provided in the previous sessions. To make sure that your employees attend the training sessions/courses, you need to make them interesting, short, and crisp.
Today we are living in a world that is full of technologies. A whole lot of information is available on your smartphone, ipads, podcasts, desktops in just a single click. Therefore, it becomes difficult to create something unique which is truly original in this content-saturated world. All we can do to make our training programs a bit unique than what is available on the Internet is to pick relevant information from different sources and tweak them according to your course requirement.
Employees deal with a large amount of information daily during their jobs and in such a scenario, absorbing training material is an add-on. Sometimes, these trainings consist of overloaded information that is difficult for employees to retain and they assume that trainings are a total waste of their time. To make sure your employees attend your training programs with interest you need to:
The training courses with video-based content can not only improve learning but also helps in long-term retention. Share these video-based training with your employees so that whenever they feel that they have forgotten the information, they can re-watch it and implement it in their work-life.
Sometimes companies select tools or technology that does not align with the companies’ specific training needs. L&D teams initiate the trainings without any careful planning and right technology which leads to poor employee attendance. All you can do is research about different technologies, the features they offer, and the benefits they provide.
Your employees are educated and experienced enough to do their jobs. They don’t want to be controlled. All they need is a little bit of guidance, motivation or a push to work in the right direction. Empower them with the right tools and technology so that they can drive their own results which leads to their personal development and stronger self-confidence.
Planning and timing also play a significant role when it comes to building employee engagement. Make sure you create courses that are compatible and responsive to each device be it a smartphone, tablet or desktop so that employees can learn according to their own comfort and pace. All this can be done using the right tools and technology.
So what are you waiting for?
Let’s start creating L&D programs that not only interests employees but also enhances their skills and knowledge.
