Starting a new job without training is like swimming for the first time – it’s actually drowning.
It goes without saying that training is a vital part of the onboarding process but it can also be expensive and time consuming if you’re using outdated training methods because seminars, classes, and the loss of productivity all come with a hefty price tag.
Using a Learning Management System (LMS) with integrated video training will reduce turnover rates and increase employee engagement by allowing your new-hires and employees to learn at their own pace and make the most of their time on the clock.
We know that the one-size-fits-all training approach is never as effective as newer, more customized approaches. With technology at our disposable, the customized approach is now the cheaper option and the more productive one.
Through an LMS, video is accessible on PCs laptops, tablets, and phones so it can be reached by your employees from anywhere – valuable safety training could be accessed on the job. Not to mention, all training documents and paperwork would also be available to employees through the same, centralized system.
73% of best in class organization give their employees access to video content according an Aberdeen study and that’s 22% more than average organizations.
Video takes the pressure off of employees to remember everything from training because if they didn’t get it the first time, they can watch the video again and learn at their own pace. Not everyone absorbs content immediately but the few that do will productive even sooner.
Lastly, video is easy. Whether you get access to a video library through your LMS like one we have through BirdDogHR that hosts hundreds of training and safety videos – or if it’s something you have to do yourself – video isn’t the hassle it was ten years ago or even five. A good training video can be as simple as a recorded presentation or a department manager speaking to a camera.
The value of video is in accessibility and an effective LMS.
