What is Performance Based Training: The What
It’s really easy for companies to get into a traditional onboarding and training routine and never update it. You’ve laid the foundation, so why fix something if it works? But what if it’s not working? When you really take a step back and look at your employee's overall performance and goals...are they hitting those goals? Have they applied anything they’ve learned from training or even their onboarding? Is their performance lacking and hurting the end goal? Often times it’s difficult to measure their success if you don’t set up your training, development and application foundation correctly.
“Only 27% of employees think their performance management is effective enough to help them develop necessary knowledge and skills” -
The Human Capital Institute
So what makes Performance Based training so important? It’s the upgraded version of your basic learning and development courses. You’re no longer just looking at just what their job function is and offering the baseline of knowledge and tools, it’s taking a look at what you want to see from your employees as individuals, a team and as an overall company. Taking an in-depth look into what your expectations are, giving constructive feedback, offering the tools to reach these goals and teaching new skills to be able to maintain and exceed expectations.
Benefits and Perks: The Why
The end result for many is to see a good ROI from your employees’ work. The connection between learning and development to performance and outcomes is strong. So strong that organizations are investing in systems to help reestablish their L&D to track, maintain and obtain successful results.#PerformanceBasedTraining is more than your basic #onboarding. It’s creating a foundation for executive performance and higher engagement. Find out how @ClearCompany can help your team implement it today:
How does enforcing and reestablishing your learning and development to a performance-based training approach impact your employees? It creates a sense of focus, maps out goals and gives direct feedback to individuals for them to follow and keep up with. Not only does it give them the advice and direction they need, but your managers are also able to identify what skills are needed to be taught and strengthen for employees to be successful in their role and performance in order to deliver the best results.
How does this improve culture, engagement and retention? Employees interest is spiked when opportunities arise that offer something of value to them, personally and professionally. Learning and development courses better engage them when it’s related back to issues or skills they are wanting to work on and need to improve to help their performance. Giving them the right resources they need to ignite that fire in their work again and help them grow as individuals and as a team member boosts overall employee engagement, behavior and motivation.
