Why Emailing a PowerPoint Won’t Work

By |2020-03-31T14:58:15+00:00March 31st, 2020|Uncategorized|

You had the perfect new hire training prepared. Your PowerPoint slides contained just the right amount of text and fly-in animations. The in-office classroom had the projector and round-tables ready. Then, a pandemic happened.

Your new hires still start next week, albeit remotely. Take a moment to pause, though, before you hit “Send” on that email with the PowerPoint training attached.

Even if every new hire opens the training attachment and reads each slide, will they understand the information?

Will their quick clicks of the slides help them internalize your company values?

Will they know what they are expected to do?

Without your context and explanation, the answer is a firm, “No.”

A slide-based presentation format, like PowerPoint, is a valuable tool for presenting information. It’s just that, though, a tool. Without the support of an instructor discussing concepts, adding examples, and prompting questions, it loses meaning.

With a few tweaks, that same presentation can become relevant and impactful. Consider using virtual instructor-led training (ILT) or rapid eLearning to connect with your new hires. Virtual ILT or rapid eLearning can be created in a few days or weeks. It will help your employees better understand the training material and act on it in meaningful ways.

3 Things You Need to Get Started with Rapid eLearning

By |2020-03-31T15:05:26+00:00March 26th, 2020|Uncategorized|

Do you have a suddenly remote workforce? Your instructor-led training and live events can still take place through rapid eLearning and virtual training.

Watch this 90-second video to learn how to accelerate quick and effective rapid eLearning conversions.

Remote learning can help ease the transition to achieving business results from a distance. Rapid eLearning quickly re-purposes existing materials, streamlines information, and creates meaningful remote training and communication in a few days or weeks.

With an unexpectedly remote team, your training needs and delivery models must quickly evolve. Consider your previously office-based new hire compliance training, sales incentive training, or healthcare process and systems training. What do virtual versions of these programs look like and how can they be effective?

Remote work relies on proactive and frequent communication. Digital training and communication can help facilitate information delivery and intended action. You can quickly take existing presentations, training sessions, or documents and break them down into easy-to-understand blocks. This is then delivered in a digital format that will resonate with your team members.

what is compliance training

Original Source: 

Compliance training has broad content application. Organizations should aim for compliance content that focuses on the applicability of the information, rather than the in’s and out’s of the laws and policies themselves. 

Compliance training content may be related to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, Anti-Kickback Statute, Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, Anti-Harassment, Workplace Safety, Code of Conduct, HIPAA, Diversity, Cybersecurity, Data Protection, and much more. Most compliance training, 82% in fact, is completed online.

The ideal training approach for online compliance training is that the content is broad-reaching, but with personalized paths for individual job functions, such as sales, marketing or research and development. In addition, effective compliance training should be scenario drive, engaging and memorable, and lead employees and contractors to additional resources and where to go for help.
