Balancing time out for training alongside getting the job done is difficult for every organisation.
Since working in the learning and development industry I have noticed the trend towards short, bite-sized chunks of learning has increased in popularity.
The benefits are:
- Flexible timeframes – choose the exact time that suits best: perhaps a breakfast session, lunch and learn, or at the end of the day?
- Open to any number of employees – many employees can learn at once
- Specific and relevant topics – if you want to explore Microsoft Excel functions to improve your office output, we can dedicate a workshop to learning Excel functions. Perhaps you need to understand parental leave options for your employees or wish to explore how to reduce stress during the peak season of your business. All workshops are specific and tailored to requirements.
- Offer a larger number of training workshops to employees for the investment
- It is a great way to help engage employees on the issues they wish to learn about. Increasing employee engagement is one of the most widely agreed ways in which to improve an organisation’s performance.
Many organisations in Nelson are exploring the areas of wellbeing, time management, and computer skills for their teams. These skills are fast to obtain and are relatively easy to implement for a lasting change.
Here are some words participants used to describe attending a short Resilience and Wellbeing workshop:
Well presented and user-friendly. Very personable, upbeat and realistic. Encouraged to contribute – enjoyed hearing other people’s experiences. Valuable sharing and group interaction. Informative and fun.
