There are several common methods of employee training, some of which may slow the training process, or even cause failure.
Discover how these 4 common training methods affect employee knowledge retention:
#1 Classroom Training
Classroom training is the traditional training method for employees. You put a group of new employees in a closed room for a few hours, or even days, and expect that after all the lessons they will remember everything they have learned and how it relates to their job.
The inefficiencies of classroom learning are well documented. To make matters worse, employees are feeling anxiety as they sit in classroom and their tasks pile up. There must be a better way, right?
#2 Learning Kit And Online Resources
Providing a learning kit is another training method for employees. Some employers send users to read in online resources. However, the truth is that employees become exhausted from both methods. No one is happy searching for the information they need in manuals and learning kits. There must be a better way, right?
#3 One-on-One Training
This training method for employees is largely a waste of time. With this method, the employee may not always feel convenient to say that he does not understand the process and might try to avoid causing his instructor repeat his words again and again. And besides — why waste time and resources on individual training, when you can teach them all together? There must be a better way, right?
#4 Digital Adoption Platform
This training method empowers employees to learn online platforms while working, on the job, and without wasting precious time. Just this fact in itself allows you to save money and resources. WalkMe’s Digital Adoption Platform (DAP) provides on-the-job employee training in a short and simple process to complete tasks effectively, without the need for prior knowledge. This method streamlines training without the need for classroom instruction, learning kit, or individual training. This must be the best way, right?
