Planning Your Employee 2022 Training

When it comes to planning your employee 2022 training, a detailed plan is very much helpful to conquer your training goals and achieve the desired results.

The question now is: are you investing enough time in planning out the training program?

Some people say, that to succeed in life, you need to have a plan and follow through with it. Others say it is best you go with the flow.

However, when it comes to employee training, a detailed training plan is the best choice.

A training plan should outline the steps of a training program that can save you from mistakes you could have avoided and help you focus on the process.

In this blog, we’ve written out basic pointers for a successful employee training plan.

1.     Know About Your Workforce:

Your employees will impact major decisions, especially how you will deliver the training and which training tools you’ll implement.

To create a trainee profile, there are some characteristics to consider, such as:

  • Generations they belong to.
  • Educational/ experience level.

For example, for Millennials & Gen-Zs, you’ll need to offer courses that are mobile-friendly.

This is because these generations are enthusiastic mobile users. The difficult aspect of any course should also match the learner’s level of knowledge.

You can conduct a pre-test to know where your employees stand.

Also, the type of workforce (deskless, remote, in-office, dispersed), will determine if a Virtual instructor-led training (like that of Capworth’s) is a good option for global teams and whether it will be easy to pull off for remote employees.

Considering their digital literacy in case you’re thinking about using online training.

Some employees may need extra assistance in learning how to use the supposed training platform and tools.

2.     Carry Out a Training Need Analysis:

Consider knowing what the skill gaps within your workforce are.

Then you can answer the following questions to conduct a training need analysis:

  • Do you need to develop an employee training?
  • What type of training should you set up?

Conducting a training need analysis is not a complex process.

You just need to carry out surveys or talk directly with employees to find out what they lack.

This helps you to discover existing skill gaps that are a problem now or could become a problem soon.

For instance, customer service is a good department where you’ll find valuable information because customer complaints can direct you towards skill gaps.

You might discover you need to plan for more than one training.

3.     Have Specific Training Goals:

Training goals are necessary for guiding you, but to your employee, they might not mean as much.

Thus, you should break down your training goals to your employees, to create learning objectives.

To order to identify your learning objectives, ask the question and answer this:

  • What do you want to achieve through the training?

The narrower and more specific your answer is, the better.

Setting specific goals increases your chances of hitting the target. And it makes it easier for you to better measure the results.

For example, “to improve Customer Satisfaction by 5% at the end of the year”, is a goal that can be easily measured.

Employees need a clear picture of how their jobs & performance will improve after training.

Finally, by following a detailed training plan you will have a better understanding of your needs and make better decisions throughout the development stage.

Also, promoting your training schedule with the help of your managers will help to create anticipation and excitement among employees.
