From one time training events to continuous, on-the-job learning
If you’re like most organizations today, you probably can’t recruit and train new hires quickly enough to replace the outflow of workers retiring or leaving your organization each year. Some of your workers have likely been with your organization for decades. When they leave, they take all their experience and tribal knowledge out the door with them, making them impossible to replace overnight.
It can take weeks and even months to get frontline workers up to speed on the basic skills needed to operate today’s complex industrial equipment. It then takes years for them to develop the expert level skills needed to train others, troubleshoot problems and contribute solid ideas for continuous improvement.
- So how can your organization accelerate the time to performance of your new and existing frontline workers?
- Moreover, how can you make it easier for your entire workforce to continuously develop new skills and learn from one another?
- Equally important, how do you lessen the burden of managing worker skills so that supervisors and Learning & Development stakeholders spend less time doing manual tasks, such as tracking and updating skills, and have more time to be strategic.
