Training and training program

Employee training involves an interactive, engaging and motivating training program. What about yours?

Training employees in a room with a power point presentation ... SOS ... help!

Training and training programs are an important means of retention since it allows employees to learn and take an interest in what they are doing and the right way to do it.

What is the best strategy ? Well there is of course more than one.

Some of the important things are:

  • That it is adapted to your employees and to their rhythm

  • That they take into account the tasks they have to perform in their daily work

  • That it integrates practical exercises to be done in the workplace and at their respective work stations

  • That it includes feedback on the production floor

  • That it gives the employees the minimum content they need to do their job well and let them know they can take it further if they want to

  • To offer several different times during the week to take training courses so that your employees choose the best time , and above all, the time when they are the most receptive

  • To present a few concepts at a time and then to validate the understanding of your employees alone or in small groups and as much as possible in the heat of the action

How to put forward a good training program?

How do you get to do all of this?

  • By going gradually

  • By introducing simple and accessible technological means such as electronic tablets , telephones , etc.

  • By preparing training programs first and using your supervisory team  and upper management people to test them

  • By matching each employee with someone who will act as a mentor and to whom the employee can turn/refer to for questions or to validate their understanding

  • Vary the approaches:

    • with the fewest possible sessions in class except for more advanced technical training

    • with short training periods not exceeding 20 minutes except for more advanced technical training

    • by making reminders with the employee at his workstation to validate his understanding

    • by organizing simulations

    • avoiding as much as possible disciplinary sanctions in the event of errors during operations following training or a training recall

  • By keeping it simple and by separating the topics well so that your employees understand the subtleties of the training received and that they can establish concrete links with their functions or tasks in the company

  • You can also opt for organized computer training systems that manage attendance , evaluations , randomly vary programs , etc. This greatly facilitates management and automates data collection.

  • You can also opt for a hybrid system that makes the most of your computer system, the punch and other tools you have in place and complete  it with short training sessions on paper adapted to each workstation.
