3 Hurdles to Overcome When Creating a Compelling New Hire Training
Is there an HR professional who doesn’t know how much new hires dread an awful onboarding experience? Many companies fall into the category of those last-minute training efforts in a bid to comply with government oversight. With this in mind, the lack of proper preparation plays a huge role in lack of engagement with new hires. Before you organize your next training session in a rush, here are some of the challenges to take note of to have a compelling onboarding program.
Lack of Proper Planning
Even though the sessions are mandatory, the employees would like to go through them without groaning and otherwise not paying attention at all. These sessions, if funded correctly and given the seriousness they deserve, could end up saving you millions of dollars in litigations and damage control.
No Insight of Learner Engagement
Do the training as interactive as possible. Am sure most people would rather sit in the office than go through a boring meeting where they learn about what they can and cannot do. The general reputation surrounding these compliance training is negative, so if you can create relatable situations during the training, you still achieve the goals you intended and keep the audience engaged. A bit of humor wouldn’t hurt; the best way people remember things is through the experiences they can remember.
Out of Date Training Modules
Be updated on the current regulations concerning your organization’s activities. There’s no point in training your employees in rules they already know about in the first place. Training these staff is critical to the management process, and if done in time, it could potentially save the business from litigation troubles.
