The learning and development industry is constantly adapting and changing as technology and user needs evolve. Many organizations have started exploring new approaches to learning and development. To keep up with the ever-changing technological needs, this e-book comes in handy by explaining how organizations can adequately prepare themselves for the continually evolving training and development trends.
Strategizing training programs:
This guide impresses upon the need to keep three questions in mind before framing your training program, namely- ‘whom to train’, ‘what to train’ and ‘how to train’. Deciding what to train the right candidate can be a major source of concern as it can directly affect the return on investment of your training program. This piece also emphasizes the need for proximity index analysis to ensure maximum engagement while aligning business goals with the learning and development process.
Tools required to prepare proximity index:
The e-book divides the tools required for preparing proximity index in two parts:
i) Learning Agility Assessment- Mettl’s test for learning agility is based on learning agility simulation exercise which helps measure three major constructs for learning agility, namely learning speed, flexibility and pattern recognition.
ii) Domain Knowledge Assessment- Domain knowledge assessment from Mettl is a research-backed assessment designed by experts in the respective domain to give you a holistic view of the candidate’s abilities. It can be customized to meet the requirements of a profile as per the need.
Training V/S Hiring
The following guide sheds light on how training existing employees to accept newer responsibilities is quite simpler and perhaps better for organizations than hiring new employees. This is so because hiring new employees involves additional costs and you still need to have onboarding training to familiarize new recruits with the organization. Also, a recruit’s work ethics may not be in sync with your company’s objectives, so he would be expected to unlearn before adapting to the new workplace.
So, to keep your employees up to date with the ever-changing requirements of new skills, you need to have data-backed insights to be able to continually improve your training programs to get a consistent return. This guide helps you in meeting this goal.
