4 Training Methods that are Producing Real Results

Training has become a real problem during COVID-19. While still necessary, how can it be delivered remotely?

The use of technology can deliver teachings and enforce the message. Despite the constant use of webinars and Zoom meetings this year, training your staff on specific topics for a limited amount of time does yield tremendous benefits.

 

Four Approaches Making a Difference

 

  1. Virtual Training

This collaborative method allows participants to connect, from anywhere in the world, where an  is facilitating specific training.

 

The results from a Training Magazine survey is impressive:
 

  1. 100% of the participants were highly satisfied with this experience
  2. 90% of the virtual learners passed the skill mastery test, which is one percent higher than traditional face-to-face learning
  3. 86% stated the virtual training experience was more or just as engaging as a live classroom setting.
     
  1. More hands-on follow-up.
    Rather than having “one and done” instructions, there are ways to keep the message resonating with their employees. Every 30-, 60- and 90-days after the digital marketing session, they reinforce it through:

     
    1. Standup morning meetings
    2. Deeper dive sessions or
    3. Individual coaching

Using one or more of the above techniques, managers have found an improvement in the integration of the training into their employees’ daily work patterns.
 

  1. Use of curated content.
    YouTube started it with the ability to search for videos to learn a new skill. Microsoft Virtual Academy, Lynda.com, and other tools have picked up on this by allowing learners to garner new knowledge and become certified in courseware without ever stepping into a training center. Per research completed by Kaltura, 95% of business owners confirmed that video helps train their employees faster and better.

     
  2. Implement microlearning.
    Today’s employees want technical information in three to five-minute video clips. This is a great way to start or end a meeting by showing a video or collaborating about the best way to roll out a new product. Allowing users to come back to the content and pick up where they left off is also useful. According to MarketsandMarkets, 70% of the workforce they surveyed prefer to train this way.
