When the need for change is recognised in your organisation, your first step should be to deploy a digital learning solution that provides learners at every level with a platform to practice their skills and improve knowledge retention.
Pushing employees towards real-time training on the job will only serve to increase the risk of costly mistakes - especially for those working in construction or engineering industries. Adopting a digital experience to train your employees will assist in boosting the confidence of your employees by creating a safe space where they can try and try and try again until they are ready to showcase their competencies.
This is particularly important if your aim is to drive change through your organisation: after all, behaviour is learned, and in order for staff to fully understand new policies, practices and business processes, they must be given sufficient support through the transformation.
Many people recognise the need for change but don’t know how to. Having the right tools and chances to practise in a no risk environment is key to transforming behaviour and performance. Feedback is also critical, so practise, get some feedback, practise again, and so on. This concept is best summed up the Olympic gold medal winning rower Ben Hunt-Davis: “Coming from the sporting world into the corporate world I found it amazing that people don’t seem to practice. People just go and do the real thing straight off. In the boat we spent 99.9% of our time practising in a safe environment. Clearly you can’t do that percentage in the business world, but if you spent say 5% of your time practising, wouldn’t that increase your payback more than 5%?”
