Making Employee Training Innovative

Innovation is the key to employee training for the most forward-thinking and modern approach to learning.

Providing innovative training to employees allows for boosted productivity and engagement in learning material, making for a more informed workforce contributing to overall corporate success.

In this article, we outline 5 of the best innovative employee training strategies for greater employee retention and corporate growth.

1. Utilizing Gamification

Gamification is a learning tool adopted by a multitude of mobile-based microlearning LMS’s, such as SC Training (formerly EdApp). SC Training (formerly EdApp) incorporates specific gaming elements into serious course content, such as leader boards, point scores, star bars and real prizing. Gamification gives rise to motivation in employees, simultaneously boosting their engagement, productivity and performance. It epitomises innovation, given the fact that only a decade ago, traditional learning methods were employed whereby training was in the form of 30-page documents.

2. Incorporating Feedback Into Training

Peer authoring is made available in good LMS’s, enabling users to leave constructive feedback on their microlessons. Receiving feedback from learners is the best possible way to improve training for current and future employees, as employers can get an idea of areas of strengths and weaknesses, as well as identify any possible gaps in employees’ learning.

3. The Use Of Customer Success To Develop Innovation

It is essential to share customer experience with new employees and keep the old ones up to date. Involving customer success into corporate training motivates employees to continuously better their performance. Customer experience makes clear clients’ loves, peeves, challenges and triumphs. Sharing these experiences with employees is the perfect example of an innovating teaching technique.

4. Introducing Blended Learning To Employees

Blended learning combines traditional instructor-led style training with self-directed learning. It is an effective and adaptive approach to eLearning, with proven benefits across industries. This hybrid teaching method better suits the various needs of employees across their different roles, making for a versatile and convenient employee training strategy.

5. The Consistency Of Interactivities

Interactivities are proven to significantly increase employee engagement and achievement, due to their attractiveness to learners. Interactive exercises allow new and existing employees to digitally enact situations to prepare themselves for the performance of corporate processes and tasks. This closes gaps in learning and means that employees can consolidate new and complex concepts.
