An effective eLearning-based corporate training program requires careful planning, development, and deployment. While there are many moving parts to this effort, one way to streamline your program is through the creation of Groups. For corporate training purposes, a Group is a collection of employees that have similar or overlapping job characteristics and training objectives. If you are considering the implementation of any type of Role-Based training, sorting employees into Groups will support this objective.
What is Role-Based Training?
When developing a corporate training program, it is important to maintain an eye toward efficiency. An undesirable outcome is one in which your employees are working through courses that are not relevant to their job roles. Each role in your organization requires a different set of skills and knowledge. While some aspects of training may be applicable across your employee base, the majority of an employee’s activities should focus on the specific skills and knowledge that applies to their specific job role.
Given this, the implementation of Role-Based Training is critical for streamlining your eLearning program. It provides a practical approach allow for training as it pertains to a specific role, delivering the resources and emphasizing the skills required to perform that particular role.
Some of the specific benefits you can expect through role-based training include:
Role-based training eliminates the possibility that your employees are spending valuable time working through training activities that have no relevance to them, increasing the cost-effectiveness of your program.
Job and Situation Specific
With role-based training, your program can focus more specific on the problem-solving skills of your employees by presenting them with actual scenarios they can expect to encounter in their work. This allows you to evaluate their actual performance and revise their training activities accordingly.
A Learning Path adds structure to your training program by taking employees through a logical progression of courses to achieve their training objective. Role-based training allows you to consider and deploy effective learning paths to maximize the benefit of your program and easily track the skills-development progression of your employees over time.
Through role-based training, each of your training groups can achieve a greater sense of camaraderie by sharing their training experience, encouraging skill development in each other, and supporting the learning experience of their colleagues.
