Did you know that we forget 50% of what we learn within the hour, 70% by the end of the day, and retain only roughly 10% after a month using traditional training methods? But just because your training attempts do not yield any results, doesn’t mean that you can uproot them completely. Would you rather risk having untrained personnel wreak havoc within your organization?
Training programs are essential to ensure high employee productivity and that your employees stay motivated and engaged. In this article, we’ll guide you through the process of creating high-impact customs training using an employee training management system.
Creating a process with Remente employee training management system
Not only are there huge costs associated with training programs, but there’s also a lot of time and effort invested in them. While designing an engaging, entertaining, and effective training program might seem like a daunting task, if you break it down into a series of concrete steps, it can ease the burden by a lot.
1. Identify the need
Figure out the “Why”. Your approach will depend on the requirements of the people involved. Figuring out what you need/want to accomplish with the training is half the battle and acts as your sense of direction
- What’s the purpose of the training?
- Is it training or retraining?
- Will it be custom training for specific individuals, or generic training open for everyone?
2. Look for skill gaps
We all have our own circumstances, possess different knowledge, and have varying amounts of experience. Every organization has its share of weak links. These workers are not unskilled, just untrained. Like rough diamonds, they will also start to shine after some polishing. Performing a skill gap analysis will grant you great insight into your company on how to design the training program.
- What competencies do your organization value the most?
- What skills do your underperforming employees lack in comparison with others?
- What trainable skills do your well-performing workers posses
3. Establish clear goals and objectives
Set clear goals for your training program. This ensures that you will stay on track to be able to accomplish them.
- What do you consider a success?
- What is a realistic timeline for the training?
- What other impacts do you expect?
4. Create a plan
Be innovative in devising the plan. Videos and interactive training exercises make for an engaging program.
- Will the program create a buzz among the employees?
- How can you maintain attention throughout the whole program?
- Are there any media you can use to help you achieve your goals?
