What does your company’s current safety training look like? Are employees corralled into a conference room and subjected to hours of drawn-out PowerPoint presentations? Are they required to complete lengthy. boring training modules that sideline their productivity? While nobody would argue the importance of company safety training, the medium through which you deliver your training can have a major effect on your outcomes. And unfortunately, with “traditional” safety training, most learners forget 50% of the information presented to them within an hour—with as much as 90% of that information being lost within 30 days.
What if there was a way to more effectively train employees while also cutting down on training time and reducing costs? With unique microlearning content from IMPROV® Learning, now there is.
What is Microlearning?
Small bites, big impact. These are the concepts our microlearning format has been built around. Specifically, microlearning refers to training modules that are extremely concise (usually between just three and five minutes long). These modules are also characterized by their:
- ability to meet an exact learning outcome
- unrivaled accessibility across a variety of devices
- learner-centric approach
Essentially, microlearning modules can replace the “traditional” training landscape of the past with short, engaging, and useful training that employees will remember.
Why Choose Microlearning for Your Safety Training?
The topics covered in your company safety training are undoubtedly important; when employees fail to fully learn and understand these concepts, lives could be at-risk. Fortunately, microlearning modules are extremely effective in not only communicating concepts to adult learners, but boosting retention and engagement as well.
Improve Retention of Safety Learning Objectives
Retention rates with traditional company training are mediocre at-best, but when your company makes the switch to microlearning, retention of information could increase by 20% or more.
Increase Employee Engagement and Morale
Employees are more engaged and genuinely interested in their training when it’s relatable to them—and when they don’t feel like they’re being forced to sit through hours of content that they don’t find useful. With the concise and tailored nature of microlearning content, employee engagement and morale increase.
Get Employees Back to Work Quickly
How many hours a year do your employees spend in conference rooms undergoing safety training? How much time is spent preparing training PowerPoints and similar materials? All this time is costly. One of the focuses of microlearning is to reduce the amount of time required for your employees to absorb key training takeaways, which in-turn saves your company money.
Enjoy a Return on Your Investment
Companies that make the switch to microlearning for their safety training can enjoy up to a six-fold return on their investment. Specifically, studies have shown that for every $1 invested in workplace injury prevention, returns range between $2 and $6 long-term.
