5 Reasons why should you take your companies induction training online.
Health and safety induction training is crucial in creating a safe working environment for your workforce. Don’t forget too, that since the 2007 Corporate Manslaughter Act that failing to have safety mechanisms in place like this could result in custodial sentences and heavy fines if you can’t show you have delivered the right training for the job.
In order to create a safe working environment most companies induct their workforce using traditional face-to-face delivery. However research has shown that face-to-face training opens itself to inconsistent messaging and relies greatly on the tone of the trainer. Businesses delivering induction training online however have found that the training is far more consistent and efficient.
You have probably heard the most common answers to these questions. First and foremost is the benefit of the time and money savings you can realise by having your training online. Another common answer to this question is the advantage of having consistent training with 24/7 access.
Saving time and money and delivering consistent training with the flexibility of online are all real advantages of online induction training, but they aren’t the only ones.
What are the real benefits of moving your induction away from using only face-to-face training?
Here are 5 reasons why you should take your companies induction training online:
SUITABLE FOR ALL LEARNING STYLES
When it comes to learning and information retention, we all are different. Online induction training accommodates all learning styles, allowing learners to digest information in their own way, whether through audio, visuals or a combination of the two.
TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANCES IN THE WORKPLACE
The use of technology in the workplace is the norm for business communications and operations, so why shouldn’t that be the case for learning & development as well? Online training can be delivered on all devices such as smartphones and tablets making learning even more convenient. There are no longer any excuses for not completing induction training.
USE OF INTERACTIVITY TO ENGAGE LEARNERS
The use of interactivity in online training has transformed the way users learn, and is becoming ever more common in the workplace. Interactivity in online training can actually result in greater learner engagement and knowledge retention.
SPECIALISED DESIGNER INPUT
Face-to-face induction trainers can often not have a clear enough understanding of which elements of the training are critical. Our designers aid in creating online training courses that are both engaging and informative. Desired learner outcomes as well as key material are determined and mapped prior to the training course being developed. This ensures that all content within a course is in line with the predetermined learning goals, so that every user always gets trained on all critical information.
In any face-to-face training, it is difficult to determine which learners have understood the information presented in the training. Online training delivered through a Learning Management System (LMS) enables a live reporting functionality. An online system is easily the most effective way of making sure that your employees are properly inducted and compliant.
