Everybody learns at their own speed, but most companies aren’t considering that fact when designing training programs. By not being able to review training information how they’d like, employees are forced to rush through complicated topics. It also denies employees time to take a moment and process what they’ve learned, which is an important part of the learning process.
A 2015 study from the Harvard Business School found that participants who were asked to stop and reflect on a task they’d just performed improved at greater rates than participants who just practiced a task. So by giving, and encouraging, employees time to think about what they’re doing, learning will be quicker and more reinforced.
Additionally, training platforms like Tasytt make it easy for employees to add their own contributions to training material and rewards them for doing so. For example, after completing a training unit, an employee can reflect and share their input with others. This not only makes training more engaging, but also ensures each employee is properly processing what they’re learning.
