A survey conducted by Deloitte found that less than half of business leaders believe that their businesses were doing an excellent job helping workers address info overload. This seems to indicate that their human resources training do not address the needs of their workers. Companies are communicating information in a way that does not efficiently teach the employees the skills that they need.
New technologies and trends are becoming ever more effective. Organisations don’t need to be overcome by the sheer volume of information available. They can now focus in on the skills they need to step up their productivity. Consider applying some of these available innovations to your human resources training program:
Advantages of Tablet Technology
Using tablet computers, including Surface or iPad, is fast establishing itself in the retail and corporate industry, and so are human resource training programs. It can revolutionise the way organisations train their workers. There are incredible benefits attached. Employees can train on iPads and avoid plodding through thick binders of printed content. As opposed to bulky, intimidating and unappealing content, the tablet is easy to use, portable and convenient in many ways. It enables workers to focus on what they need to learn and finding it quickly when they need it.
It is a time-consuming task to find a specific video or printed file without a modern software solution. In such a case the content can easily be skipped. A solution that can easily push or pull will allow you to send new or altered content to the employee’s iPad, and it is there! All the worker then has to do is to switch on his iPad and open the relevant program intended. Additionally you can ensure that are notified when the training is ready for them.
In using video material, HR departments have often encountered one important obstacle: Video files are enormous! You have to find a way to conserve precious storage space and bandwidth without sacrificing the ability to assemble video libraries. The solution is video compression. The video is then easily sent and stored on the remote device without monopolising storage space. Streaming of content is then unnecessary – they don’t need an internet connection to view a video.
