For a company to grow at a fast pace, it is necessary that its employees possess essential skills such as problem-solving capabilities, industry-based knowledge, and other required skills related to everyday workplace activities. In fact, even when new employees are recruited, they should be trained in such a way that they acquire necessary knowledge of day-to-day working of the workplace.
Unfortunately, this is not the case in most companies where scant regard is given to knowledge and application. Depending on the situation, skills required for daily life may vary every day and new techniques used to solve a different type of problem of a workplace are not considered adequately.
This is how a gap surfaces between the training offered and the actual requirements of training. To elaborate, L&D teams develop eLearning materials and programs in a variety of forms and modalities. However, little effort is expended to determine if these learning programs assist employees in dealing with everyday problems and enhancing their performance. For instance, it is typical for corporate L&D teams to subject new recruits to hours of training that do not necessarily equip them to be aligned with their position.
On the same lines, skill development or reskilling training programs should be assessed by seniors regularly. For example, an eLearning training program may take place without any means to monitor performance change after training. In addition, a majority of eLearning modules may lack the practice and feedback loops necessary for genuine knowledge and skill gain. Therefore, it is difficult to properly employ the needed knowledge on the job since managers and higher team management do not follow them up.
The techniques outlined below may be used to design an eLearning solution that facilitates employee skill development.
Problem-solving knowledge and skills along with critical thinking and real-life application of the learned knowledge during the training are necessary for an employee to be most productive for a company.
VK Creative Learning is one of the pioneers when it comes to the development of eLearning solutions that are designed, keeping the above aspects in consideration. It has helped many companies to build custom-based eLearning programs, which have helped their employees to perform as per the expectation of the company.
