Today’s workforce getting made up more by millennials on a regular basis is one that is referred to as “digital natives” vice those who are older that are considered digital immigrants. The digital natives are individuals who have been bought up surrounded by technology. Digital migrants on the other hand are those who have had to adapt to technology. What are some ways to enhance training other than by doing things in an online format?
It is very prevalent to use some sort of presentation software such as Microsoft PowerPoint. If somebody would take the time to record this PowerPoint, it could then be uploaded to a video service such as YouTube. From there, one could convert the video to an MP3 file. Let's not forget, the original PowerPoint presentation. Print some handouts and hand them to the employees.
Another use of the video for Visual learners is the use of explanation video. Let's just say that we own a pizza shop as our sample. What you could do is go to the various processes used to create a pizza from start to finish. Aside from the food preparation is Health inspection preparation as well. Perhaps you have seen the health inspection violations in your local area. Is not unusual for somebody to receive a violation for “lacking proper knowledge.” Incorporating a video for employees to look at and then even bequest upon can help remedy this.
Another thing that could be done in conjunction with the video two and handsome learning is to provide a forum. Again, our pizza shop example: create a Facebook group that is private for the employees that allows them to discuss anything that is going on not just limited to training but for things that can be looked upon to improve within the shop this also helps the workers take more responsibility as a now feel they have a vested interest within the operations of the shop this will also allow workers to create and receive more areas of feedback to make them more productive. Now the owner if they do not wish to do this due to being a digital migrant, can delegate this to one of the staff members who is a digital native.
