What are the benefits of training employees?
- Improved productivity
- Increased efficiency
- More accountability
- Less support required
- An established standard for training members of staff
- A more transparent company structure
- Opportunities for employee development by tracking personal growth
Up to date evidence of employee training and development is also a standard requirement for Accreditation and Certification bodies awarding new standards or renewing them. As businesses grow and onboard new employees or subcontractors or there is inevitable turnover of staff, a consistent, well thought-out and engaging training programme is key to progressing both your employees and businesses performance. Being able to easily evidence and quantify participation and engagement is also essential to measure training effectiveness.
At Functio, we are unique in offering EdApp the Active Learning Training Platform, which delivers remote mobile app based learning. We can create training lessons from a huge course library, bespoke to and individually branded for your company. Some of the courses we currently offer are:
- ISO Induction and Awareness
- Health & Safety Inductions
- Cyber Awareness and Security
- Toolbox Talks
- Environmental Awareness
These courses are continually being added to and we can also create new courses and lessons to meet your specific training needs. Delivering training remotely is also perfectly suited to COVID-19 restrictions with remote working and the associated difficulty in organising more expensive in-person group training.
What is Ed App mobile learning?
Microlearning is one of the most effective forms of learning and training: Microlearning is the breaking down of information into topical, bite-sized chunks. By interacting with these highly-targeted learning bursts, lessons become much easier to digest and the likelihood of knowledge retention is increased. Microlearning courses are easier to develop, update and distribute compared to traditional eLearning courses and completion rates are dramatically higher.
Nowadays, it’s common for employees to spend more time on their phone than at a work computer. Delivered via a mobile app combining microlearning with elearning gamification, training is turned from a mundane task into a game. This process lowers the mental barriers to absorbing new information which improves the likelihood of knowledge embedding in long-term memory. Gamified learning motivates learners, leads to better engagement with content and is proven to enhance message retention.
Analytical reports for User courses can then provide you with training evidence and statistics for Engagement, Performance, Knowledge and Feedback.
We’ve created an example lesson, for you to view and complete to help understand how EdApp works, or click the image above to open the lesson in a new tab.
