Employees are facing cost-cutting measures that include rising workloads and new responsibilities, so the appropriate level of training has become even more important.
Improving employee performance is critical to retaining the all-important advantage for your business, so consider the following five tips when organising training days:
Training Must Become a Serious Investment
The initial costs for new and improved training programmes may seem daunting but will almost certainly benefit in the long term. Therefore, it’s important to stress to your company that training is serious, long-term investment.
Identify the Skills that Need Improving
In order to achieve optimal results, focus on identifying the specific skills that require the most attention within a set time frame. Set up training goals for your employees and discuss their skill priorities with them regularly.
Utilise Audience Response Technology
Audience Response Systems offer unprecedented interactivity between an audience and speaker, encouraging far greater levels of engagement. Your employees get the chance to provide feedback, while the technology itself drastically reduces the chance of boredom and keeps your audience focused.
Choose a Good Location for Your Training Day
A good space can have a significant effect on the success of your training day. You will need sufficient resources and space as well as necessary equipment such as computers and comfortable seating.
Include Managers and Company Leaders
One of the best ways to build support and encourage employees to seek new opportunities within the business is to incorporate senior figures into the training day. Whether it’s a live speech, a conference call or a recorded video, managerial individuals have the ability to both inform and inspire.
