Knowing how to streamline your training process will help your employees be successful and keep them around for the long haul.

What you do in your new hires’ first days with the company is essential.  In fact, a study by the Brandon Hall Group found that organizations with a strong onboarding process improve new-hire retention by 82% and productivity by more than 70%.

Unfortunately, the onboarding process can break down when new-employee training is outdated, underfunded or rushed. Fortunately, the eLearning Industry has some pointers on how to streamline your training program. As a result, your new hires will have the best chance for success.

How to Streamline Your Training Process


Keep Your Desired Results in Mind

What knowledge and skills do you want new employees to have after training? Determine these goals on the front end, and design the training content with these goals in mind. Finally, make sure your training participants know those desired income from the start.

Identify Skill Gaps in Your Current Employees

To make sure trainees get the information they need, take a look at your current employees’ knowledge bases. Are there consistent knowledge gaps that are hampering their effectiveness? That may be a sign of some missing onboarding content. Work that information into the training you provide new hires to eliminate knowledge gaps moving forward.

Refine Your Workflows

One of the best ways to ensure new employees follow best practices is to review your procedures. Do they follow a logical flow? Can any elements be automated?

Manage the Pace of Your Training

Many employees have horror stories about getting too much information too quickly in their first days on the job. Make sure your training schedule offers new hires a manageable amount of information each day. This will help them feel less overwhelmed and more prepared.

Get Interactive

Think back to school. There’s nothing quite as boring as sitting through lectures. The same holds true in corporate training environments. Make sure your instructors keep trainees involved and engaged. There are quite a few affordable pieces of technology that can help make training interactive and fun.

Develop a Mentor Program

Even employees who feel well prepared benefit from ongoing guidance as they start their career path. You can facilitate this by pairing new hires with mentors that work in the same area of the company. Employees who are able to learn from veterans have a better idea of how to achieve their long-term goals.

Get Feedback

It’s imperative to end onboarding sessions with a training evaluation. Learning the good and the bad of employees’ training experiences will help you fine tune the training process. This will make it even more valuable to future employees.
