Many organisations tell us that they struggle to find the best way to deliver and manage learning effectively. It’s human nature that individuals approach and experience learning differently, so understanding this and ensuring your workforce has options available to them can significantly improve learning outcomes.
Maintaining engagement levels of learners, across all industries, is a common and ongoing challenge. Some learning can be naturally fun, however some topics such as safety-critical or mandatory operating procedures, which are vital for the safety of people and the environment, can often be less engaging for the learner. Operating across safety-critical industries, our clients often ask us how they can make business critical learning like this feel like less of a chore, and more interesting.
Another common business challenge our clients tell us about is knowledge fade over time. Candidates’ accreditations may be current but does that mean that their knowledge is? It is a challenging question for most organisations to answer confidently and the ability to report that the workforce is compliant covers only the basics. However, being able to identify at a granular and individual level the knowledge gaps within these employees provides a far more robust approach to compliance.
Our clients also tell us that they have data and basic numbers of compliance levels across their organisations to hand, but they struggle to find the insights within that data that help them to make any robust or urgent changes to support what their workforces need at any given time.
If you need to urgently update a standard operating procedure, communicate this and then update your training accordingly, how would you do this?
You may not have the answer to this question, or you may have to quickly jump to more traditional means of communicating a mandatory learning requirement to reach your employees at speed. But what if there was a simpler, more effective, quicker, and more robust way of doing this that would give you total peace of mind that your safety-critical thinking is being embedded.
