There have been various challenges associated with the implementation and delivery of induction and onboarding programs. Effective induction and onboarding are critical to both employees as well as the business.
The traditional approach to induction and onboarding training programs has always been face-to-face, facilitated sessions because learning directly from peers and seniors leads them to understand the organizational dynamics and its value proposition more efficiently. However, this approach is also accompanied by integral challenges. The impact of the traditional approach is hindered because of the inadequate time spent by managers, inconsistent messaging, delays in timely completion, and cognitive overload.
The blended or fully online induction and onboarding approach on the other hand presents several other value-adds that will help you keep your training current and in sync with your changing business needs. This approach allows for the delivering of induction and onboarding programs in the mLearning format, giving the employees the flexibility to learn on the devices of their choice. The bite-sized learning makes it easier for them to assimilate it at their own pace. Additionally, using high-impact formats like videos, interactive videos, gamified quizzes, and so on keeps them engaged.
I hope these examples helped you understand the importance of converting your induction and onboarding program to blended or fully online training. By doing so, you will be able to enhance your training and offer flexibility to learners and increase the engagement quotient as well as the sticky learning experience. These programs can be rendered on the device of your choice and also be updated with the ever-changing business environment.
