Organizational growth is awesome: it’s a measure of success. But for some, increasing growth is all that they’ve thought about, without planning for the strain that same growth will put on existing capacities. Are you equipped to handle the scaling employee training needs that go along with growth?
So, what does the concept of scale mean? In the corporate world, it’s the ability to grow and expand in a meaningful way. Since our first love is for the training environment, we look at scale as the capability to reach large learner populations and the ability to adapt to growing amounts of users.
Why is it important then? Getting your employees up to speed with their responsibilities and providing professional development is a monumental task. Training a small group of employees is relatively simple, but as your organization grows any gaps in learning can tangibly effect your business processes.
Employee Training at Scale
Let’s take a look at what scale means in four specific employee training types.
Developing brand awareness and engagement in your employees is incredibly valuable. To really create brand ambassadors, you need to reach every employee and provide a unified, cohesive message. A dietary supplement company, for example, engaged both seasoned and new employees with a consistent brand message in this award-winning course.
New hires are a smaller pool of candidates to train, but their development is no less important because of it. During periods of growth, the number of employees being onboarded increases dramatically. One award-winning onboarding course built for this kind of growth resulted in a more streamlined onboarding process with the influx of more seasonal hiring.
Sales Enablement Training
Create relevant content for your sales people to use for insightful, targeted conversations. Sales enablement training should provide methods for tailored interactions with clients and potential customers. Here you need to scale the amount of information provided to learners, such as with a resource library. A resource library that was created to fit sales people’s busy schedules was included in this award-winning sales enablement course built for a national agro-retail business.
Because compliance training is mandatory, you will need to reach everyone in the organization. Some roles may require different degrees of training, so you need a way to differentiate the compliance requirements for those roles and get the right training to the right groups of people. In a required medical insurance company training, the insured doctors are given a training that fits their expertise level.
AllenComm offers these additional tools for companies to scale their employee training:
The AllenComm Portal:
The award-winning AllenComm portal uses a flexible architecture to create a next-gen learning, performance, and engagement suite that stands alone, enhances, or even replaces a traditional LMS. Our portal solutions are designed to provide you with the ability to provide employee training to all the necessary people regardless of how fast you grow.
We don’t tie you to a one-size-fits-all approach either. As your business changes, we offer innovation and enhancement. And because we don’t charge for extra users you don’t have to worry about hurting your budget.
The AllenComm Process:
We recognize that when it comes to development processes, one solution doesn’t fit everyone. Our process options allow us to evaluate the needs of each project and match them to the appropriate process. By front-loading the design process, we can make sure to develop your solution at optimal efficiency and speed. The majority of the decision points come early in the process, allowing you ample opportunity to shape the design of the solution before we begin production. Scaling the training comes from analyzing and understanding the needs of your growing audiences—who they are, how many there are, and what their roles and responsibilities are.
