Not many look forward to corporate training: employees think it is a waste of time, and employers sometimes feel the same. However, corporate training is essential, especially if it is for skills development. Many employees want to engage with the training actively, but those who conduct the training can be poor public speakers who quickly lose the audience.
Mobile app corporate training is a much more practical option than traditional training methods. Below are several of the benefits that can be enjoyed by choosing this option. Diversido is a company that can help clients create corporate training apps with all of these advantages.
One of the reasons people do not like corporate training is it takes too much time. Employees dislike it because they have other things to do. Leaders dislike it because there are more critical things on the schedule. Neither group wants its time wasted.
Mobile apps allow for corporate training while saving time. Employees and management can go through the training modules in their free time without wasting the company’s time. They are able to focus on essential tasks related to running the business instead of having to sit through two hours of PowerPoint presentations.
Conduct Mobile App Training Anywhere
Corporate training is usually conducted in a windowless assembly area in front of a screen. Smaller companies do it in tiny meeting rooms. Some businesses try to liven up training sessions by meeting at an offsite location, but that takes time and money.
Mobile apps allow employees to complete training modules anywhere. They can do them at the office, at home, or on a trip. This feature makes mobile app corporate training more convenient and easy.
One of the problems with in-person training is distractions. Participants get up and leave, take frequent breaks, and lose focus. These interruptions make the training sessions last longer than they should. Participants also do not retain the information they were taught.
Mobile apps allow participants to train in private without people or things distracting them. They can focus on their screen rather than on everything else. Employees will finish training faster and retain more information.
Conducting training via a mobile app allows users to manage their time better. They can stop halfway through the modules to take a break, complete an important task, or call it quits for the day. The training can start again as soon as the employee is ready.
In-person training does not allow for such flexibility. Participants have to remain in the classroom and cannot quickly disengage when necessary. It causes participants to tire quickly, making them lose focus and interest.
Make Training Faster
Many things can make in-person training take longer than it should. Participants can show up late, forcing others to wait for extended periods. Discussions of the subject matter can get off-topic and extend training sessions from several minutes to several hours.
Mobile app development training modules do not allow for the problems that cause training sessions to last longer than they should. It allows training to be completed faster than it would have been otherwise.
Diversido not only makes apps that help companies complete employee training faster. They also make apps that engage employees, provide informative content, and adhere to the client’s needs and requirements.
Someone from outside the company often conducts training sessions. The trainer could charge thousands of dollars, depending on the training being undertaken. Additionally, there are costs for things like catering, renting a location, etc.
Packing everything into an app allows companies to cut high costs without sacrificing learning and skills development. Hiring someone to develop mobile training courses can be done at a fraction of the cost it takes to hire someone to come in and start lecturing.
Interactive Learning Mobile Development
In-person training sessions often include “death by PowerPoint.” Someone who does not know how to give a presentation stands beside a screen and reads the bullet points. This kind of training is unsatisfactory and not engaging. Within five minutes, the person providing the training has lost the audience, and thousands of dollars have been wasted.
Mobile app training is much more involved than a PowerPoint presentation. It can include multimedia (video, text, and graphics) and questions that challenge the employee’s knowledge of the content. Additionally, mobile apps can be tailored to the needs of individual employees and businesses. A “one size fits all” approach does not have to be taken when using an app for training.
Ensure Training is Completed
Mobile apps allow for backdoor access to make sure everyone has taken the required training courses. During in-person training, an employee can sit through the training session without paying attention. Their supervisor will not see the difference.
Mobile apps are different. Employers can see who has or has not taken the training. They can check the answers given to questions to see if employees understand the content. Remediation can be provided when necessary. These features are especially desirable for training apps made for promoting workplace safety and Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) compliance.
