We all know that training employees in the manufacturing industry is one of the most critical – yet overlooked – indicators of success. In a day and age when people are being replaced by processes, it’s more important than ever to make sure that those who are involved in the manufacturing industry know precisely how to do their jobs.
Mistakes on the manufacturing floor can often be a matter of life and death. Neunoia provides four tips for getting the most out of your company’s approach to training.
While many employees may shiver and shake with the mention of e-learning as part of their training, it doesn’t have to be this way! Taking a slightly different approach to training by incorporating some of the tips above, and your employees’ training can be not only smooth and seamless, but actually enjoyable and effective. And at the end of the day, isn’t that what really matters?
In each issue of our newsletter, we’ll spotlight one of our team members. First up is Matt Faber, who serves as Neunoia’s lead developer (but let’s be honest… we rely on him for a lot more!).
Chances are, if you’ve ever had to complete an e-learning module, you have felt the pain associated with what many describe as a huge waste of time. And you’re not alone. Unfortunately, the vast majority of e-learning modules lack the four key elements that comprise a best-in-class e-learning campaign:
Thankfully, Neunoia integrates this strategic approach into our process, so every client’s e-learning module is custom-tailored to their specific end goals and anticipated outcomes.
Unfortunately, not all e-learning developers are the same. Neunoia developers often hear stories of e-learning production companies heading off the rails. Recently, one of our major retail clients told us this story.
“We have a course we’ve been working on for 18 months with a vendor and it still isn’t ready. The vendor developed a full-blown course without ever showing us a script, storyboards, or ideas for interactions, then developed it in software that does not work in our LMS. And the vendor has not been collaborative in helping to solve those issues. From all accounts, it has been an overwhelming exercise in process failure.”
We’d love to hear your stories or see your examples of ineffective e-learning experiences. Feel free to send us screenshots (you know you have the time to take them as you wait for the clock to tick down before advancing to the next slide!) or share your experiences with poorly developed e-learning modules. Who knows? We might even feature them (all company names removed, of course) in an upcoming newsletter! Share them with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
From time to time, Neunoia hears from our customers about how our e-learning tools have provided a training solution for their teams. Recently, Neunoia worked alongside the Journey Mental Health Center in Madison, WI to reduce the amount of time staff spent in orientation and annual trainings while remaining compliant with industry and agency standards.
“The reaction to the new e-learning product has been very positive across the agency. New staff are oriented in less time, enabling them to deliver services for the agency, positively impact revenues and also be more comfortable as they have a solid understanding of who we are and how we do things. Agency resources are more effectively used and creative solutions have been found to promote retention of materials and standardize operations for improved effectiveness and efficiency.”
