In this pandemic or lockdown period of 2019-20, many organizations are working remotely but forgot about employee’s development. All are busy in making work strategy and getting work reports from employees, whereas, training and development encompass various learning practices for employees. Every sector needs to involve training programs for their employees. It does not only improve skill, knowledge, or performance but enhances productivity. Training and development programs are also beneficial for your future leaders, employee empowerment, to increase engagement in the workplace, and much more. Today we are going to learn about the basics of remote employee training in 2020.
How training & development can be possible during remote working?
As like remote working, or online work format, training and development session is also possible through online. When it comes to Train Your Remote employees, there are many techniques, tools, and technologies to help you.
Let’s starts with Remote Employee Training?
Learning Management Systems (LMS) :
It is an integrated solution, especially to set up and track online training. With this technology, you can not only train your employees but also engage them with many more facilities. It allows the user to track the attendance and progress of employees. According to the objective, strategy, and targeted outcomes, it varies in every sector. In a learning management system, the user needs to upload the assets which will be easy-to-access for employees or remote learners. It is not only easy-to-access but also easy-to-setup and easy-to-customize.
Video-conferencing is one of the best alternative ways to attend a training session or meeting from different locations in a virtual way. It will fulfill the demand for face-to-face sessions. There are lots more benefits such as it can reduce travel time and cost. In a traditional way, there is limited space for limited people, but today’s advanced video-conference supports different sizes and levels of training. The user or authorized persons have all the control to keep the discipline of a training session. For example, he/she can only allow the employees to speak or mute. Another most employee-friendly advantage of video-conferencing is it also supports recording for playback.
Project-management and collaboration tools:
As it indicates, a project management tool is a tool that helps a team or organization to organize and manage all its activities. This is a tool that comes with a host of training resources such as FAQ pages, articles or blogs, community forums, webinars, videos, and more. For example, employees these days are already using G-suite, so it will be easier for all to execute in the same tool, and no need to set up any other tools.
What Basic Topics Organization need to Consider?
Before taking steps towards virtual training and development, an organization should also consider on some basic topics that will make the process employee-friendly and effective for productivity as well. If an employee is not concentrating or involving in the session, it is of no value. Let’s have a look –
Schedule in a friendly-time – Working from home is not all about work as an office or the usual workplace. Like, a normal human being, we all know family, friends, or some personal stuff may interrupt you. So, you need to respect employees’ time and pick up the session time, which will be compatible with the learner in general.
Frequent Technology – It implies that choose the tool or technology which is already using by your employees like zoom or Google hangout. It will make your training session simple, easy to use, and friendly. But, make sure the tools you are using have at least the opportunity you need to conduct your training session.
Latest & Advanced Topic – Try to engage, make the session full of excitement, so that learner will pay his/her proper attention towards the session. For example, choose a topic which will be in trend or demand, advanced and helpful for their further work. It will alternatively help you to boost your productivity as well.
Mobile-Friendly – As this is a remote working period, everyone may not be always available with their laptop/system. So, try to make it mobile-friendly so that it will also be easy to optimize from smart-phones.
