Expedite Time to Competency
There is a strong tie between successful onboarding and the time to new employee productivity. Therefore, onboarding has to be more than just making sure the appropriate paperwork is completed and new workers attend an orientation session. It may begin that way, but best practices call for an onboarding experience that extends well beyond the first week of employment.
Cultivate Tomorrow’s Leaders
There is no better way to plan for tomorrow than to accelerate the development of your future leaders. But one-off leadership training is not enough when it comes to developing high-potential employees. A continuous leadership training program incorporates networking, mentoring and coaching, along with more formal instruction, to provide an ongoing experience for these employees. They’ll take this training and utilize it on-the-job by applying their development efforts to real-world business issues.
Securely Distribute Critical Information
Providing timely information to partners and customers is every bit as important as keeping your own employees informed – perhaps even more so. But how is that possible when they’re dispersed around the globe? What’s needed is a consistent way to get relevant content from a trusted source into their hands both easily and securely.
Enhance On-Site Training
All too often, sales training consists solely of an annual meeting where a flood of information is directed at salespeople with the expectation of retention and internalization. Needless to say, this “drink from the firehose” approach can leave a lot to be desired especially when you consider the T&E costs involved. But on-site training does have its benefits and is not going away. So it’s time to enhance your antiquated and costly on-site training with a continuous and interactive online sales training program.
