These troubling times have encouraged many to find ways to support our businesses and employees by thinking outside the box and out of our comfort zone. We are all looking for ways to cut costs, stay afloat and hold on to our employees. My own fledgling business is no different and ,like you, I am concerned about what the coming months might bring.
It’s important to support ourselves and our employees, by finding ways to bring some routine into our lives and help us to feel valued. But also, to try to adapt to the new way of operating and find ways of carrying out our business in the new Post-Covid world.
As a remote business, usually travelling to my clients in far-flung parts of Scotland, it seemed logical to adapt by offering on-line training from the comfort of my home to yours. Not only does it satisfy the requirements of social distancing but also is by removing the need to travel, my business has become greener and leaner! The benefits of on-line training for your business are the links back to the workplace, benefitting both the business and employee, honing and learning new skills whilst unable to work, lower costs of the courses and less time away from the business.
Remote-based learning, done correctly, can be an excellent training tool which is accessible, flexible and is a way of re-establishing social interaction. There can be obstacles such as the quality of internet connection, technical knowledge and access to suitable equipment, however, I’ve found that by being flexible and understanding, most of these difficulties can easily be overcome.
Online training can be highly effective, particularly if kept to short bursts of learning. I try to keep sessions short with adequate breaks. Studies have also shown learners are five times more likely to absorb and retain information through online learning. Also regular testing halves learner distraction and improves overall retention.
