Why do the L&D teams conduct training? L&D professionals conduct training in a bid to upskill their learners so that productivity increases and employees are upskilled to take on greater positions. However, why do employees train?
Employees train for three reasons:
- Learn new skills that can help them unlock better opportunities
- Solve their current work-related problems
- Get noticed by employers
Well, many employees equate training and development to one or all three of the above mentioned reasons. Indicating to their employers that they are ready to learn, develop, and take on more. And rightfully, this is very true, and is something that no employers or trainer must ever forget.
More than the ability of a learners to grasp a topic, it is important for the L&D team to notice the efforts that a learner has put in to complete a training course.
As a result, you need to reward learners for taking the time and putting the efforts into engaging with and successfully completing your training program. That is the only way you send a clear message. A message to the rest of the organization about the benefits or advantages of learning and developing one’s skills.
On the other hand, unsuccessful attempts indicate a problem. Either at your end or the learner’s end, and it’s up to the L&D team to look into the matter. eLearning implementation is a delicate balance of testing what works and what does not, it takes time to master.
