Why take a control quiz

No matter what industry you work in, it's important to have control over your work environment. This includes having control over the tools and equipment you use, the way you work, and the safety of your teams. When teams don't have control over their environment, it can lead to frustration and a decline in productivity. This is often the case in factories, construction sites, and other industrial workplaces. In these environments, teams are often given specific tasks to complete and are not able to make decisions on their own. This can lead to a feeling of powerlessness and a lack of motivation. In some cases, this can also lead to dangerous work practices. That's why it's important to give your teams control over their work environment. This can be done in a variety of ways, such as allowing them to choose the tools they use, giving them the authority to stop work if they feel that it is unsafe, and providing them with training on how to work safely. When teams feel in control of their environment, they are more likely to be productive and safe.

Deploy a control quiz to your team

With this control quiz, you can identify which controls your team members need more training on and close these knowledge gaps so your team can feel more confident in their abilities to prevent and mitigate losses. This knowledge is critical for protecting your organization from financial losses, as it teaches them how to identify financial risks, prevent losses from happening, and respond to a loss in a timely manner. Having this reinforcement of your team’s risk management skills will help them feel more in control when it comes to protecting your organization’s bottom line. Not only can reinforcing this essential training save your business money, it also helps ensure that your organization is compliant with government regulations. This quiz allows you to track the progress of employees and identify any individuals who may require additional training. For team members that require additional regular refresher training, you’ll also have the option to deliver the control quiz to them in bite-sized chunks, at regular intervals. This allows your team to reinforce their knowledge at their own pace, making them more likely to recall what they learned sooner than if they were to have completed a one-off training program. And the best part is that your teams can access this control quiz on their preferred device whenever they have 5 minutes to spare – whether that’s on their commute, in between tasks, or before they finish up for the day.
