Studies show that employees that are locked in and engaged receive 20% greater productivity.
If you have employees that are undergoing training, you'll want them to be highly engaged every step of the way. This way, you won't allow employee orientation to become a humdrum formality.
Regardless of what sort of training that you're putting your employees through, you'll want to follow a three-step process that'll be helpful. Consider these three tips and use them so that you can hold productive training while getting everyone on the same page.
1. Have Each Person Formulate A Vision, While Embracing The Group Vision
Surveys indicate that more than 70% of people want their work to have a high purpose and sense of fulfillment. This is particularly true for millennials.
When putting your employees through training, you need to be sure that you're helping them create a vision of their career, their contribution to the company and their overall outlook. You can create photo collages in the form of a vision board in order to help people lay out their goals and dreams.
People who use vision boards and other forms of visualization are shown to be high achievers who actually accomplish their goals. By setting intentions and visualizing during training, your employees will be better able to achieve and thrive.
2. Employ Some Strong Motivators
It's important that you focus on motivating your employees in ways that are effective, rather than doing a one size fits all approach.
For example, introduce your employees to a number of motivational speakers on YouTube and see what each gravitates toward. This will expose some information about their learning styles and background, all of which play a role in motivation.
You'll want to take notes on each person in order to speak their language and find ways to level with them. You need to have a personal relationship with each person that you're training. This helps you learn their "why" and do what you can to tap into their psyche.
3. Promote Wellness And Clarity Throughout Your Workplace
A well workplace is a low-stress workplace.
You need to promote health and wellness in your office, starting with hydration. People who are dehydrated aren't able to really concentrate and get the job done at work. If you're not drinking the right amounts of water, it'll be difficult to have any energy, which can make training a moot point.
Adopt an open door policy and make sure that you stress mental well-being and peace. Encourage everyone to engage in group activities to keep the entire team mentally clicking on all cylinders.
Use these three tips to make the most out of any employee training.
