If you’ve been thinking of ways to improve staff training and development in your organisation, a step in the right direction would be to implement digital training solutions. With almost everything becoming ‘smart’ these days, its time for obsolete classroom-style training to be replaced with digital solutions as well. The benefits are many and the team at Massive Infinity strongly encourage the implementation of digital training solutions in every organisation. Having a track record of working with multiple companies for their digital training platforms, here are some benefits your company will definitely reap and help you make the decision towards implementing one.
1) On-the-go Learning
One of the greatest highlights to the entire digital training showreel would be on-the-go learning or mobile learning. Bade goodbye to physical (class)rooms that you have to book months in advance just for a 3-day training camp in the office. Now with a digital device of choice, training candidates will have access to training materials and courses at their fingertips. These lessons could be reviewed in their own time and in comfort. This way, no extra time has to be factored out of the usual work schedule
2) Personalised Learning
With learning in one’s own time and convenience, digital training solutions allow employees to learn at their own pace. If one needs to review a certain lesson again or redo the quiz a few times to gain understanding and apply it at work, a digital training platform makes it possible. There is less anxiety and stress around needing to keep up or pretending to understand the course materials especially if it was taught too fast.
Having a digital record also allows the individual to refresh oneself from time to time, without needing to scour through files and papers that have been chucked aside from the last training session.
3) Trackable Records
Most digital training systems is backed up with a content management system for the training team in charge to have access to. Although employees who undergo training can learn and complete their courses in their own time, it doesn’t mean that the progress of every individual is neglected.
With a digital training system, the managing team is able to track the lessons and quizzes completed by each employee. This enables the managing team to observe how each round of training is conducted and how their employees are performing and coping. This allows the team to review the material and make changes to the curriculum in the future so training can be improved over time.
4) Higher-achieving Employees
We believe that a non-restrictive environment will be more conducive for learning. Employees are now unlimited by time and space, and that is done in the hopes that they would be able to learn better and value-add to the organisation in the future.
A digital training solution also enables the training content delivered to every recipient to be standardised. This is exceptionally important for industries such as Food & Beverage, where excellent customer service and consistent service standards are expected. This helps to standardise company protocols and standard procedures in order to give customers and clients the best, which boosts the reputation of the brand/organisation.
5) Organised Training Curriculum
As mentioned above, with a back-end content management system, the flexibility allows for any impromptu changes to the training curriculum easily. Unlike physical copies of notes and test papers, any edits made in the backend system will instantly show at the frontend. This flexibility allows for constant improvements to the training curriculum, ensuring that the best training standards is provided for all employees.
Some organisations have troubles making changes to their training curriculum just because it is so tedious and the managing team would have to take time out of their already busy schedules. The situation then leaves them with an outdated training curriculum that never benefits the organisation at the end of day.
6) Time-saving & Cost-effective in the Long Run
A digital training solution saves time and costs on both the front-end and back-end. On one hand, no extra time is needed to conduct training sessions - no need to rent a venue or have employees cut back some days of work just for training. On the other hand, a good training system set in place goes a long way for any organisation. Cultivating a good team of staff that is both reliable and professional enables the business to continue flourishing, creating a healthy ecosystem for system.
