(Clearwater, FL) – A recent article from the SunSentinel states that companies generally want engaged employees because they tend to have more energy and do more exploration, which keeps the company competitive (1). According to Rafferty Pendery, whose company, Studio98, created Rethink Training – a web-based learning system for businesses – incremental training is the only on-the-job training that will keep employees engaged long enough to handle the productivity factor fast enough for businesses to stay competitive.
The article also goes on to say that in a recent global survey by Towers Watson, 63 percent of U.S. workers said they’re not engaged in their work. This can lead to company failure, which is never the ultimate goal.
The essential way to prevent company failure is to keep your employees engaged by incremental training. This allows employees to learn every day, become competent little by little, get on-the-job training constantly that then equates to more being more productive. Employees that feel they are able to contribute, are overall happier employees, Pendery says. “This also affects the bottom line.”
Rethink Training’s unique learning management system (LMS) allows companies to create and deliver customized interactive courses to every employee. A user-friendly interface makes it simple to build, update and maintain training and quizzes, while Web-hosted content ensures staff always has access to the most current information and materials.
“Online training is a vital part to every company to improve its bottom line by increasing productivity and cutting costs,” commented Rafferty Pendery, CEO of Rethink Training. In fact, Pendery is not the only one who believes training is the way to keep an employee engaged; which leads to productivity:
- Forbes.com (2): “For a company to succeed in the future, human resource departments and management teams need to work together to align employee development with their company’s strategic plan and invest in appropriate training programs.”
Through Rethink Training’s online system, new hires quickly become knowledgeable about their employer’s products or services. The technology gives users the ability to create training materials (from scratch or through a company’s existing content), complete courses, and grade the results.
Rethink is unique in the industry because it has developed a strong process for online incremental business training. Because administrators can update course content in real-time, this is a key factor since new products and enhancements are typically rolled out on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Other key features include the flexibility to customize training modules for specific job functions, and the ability to design courses of any duration – from under an hour to multiple days.
Fortune 500 and Inc. 500 companies have already benefited from Rethink Training’s online training program and understand that employees who are trained properly lead to productive and engaged employees, which overall help them stay valuable and keep the company growing… and competitive in a tough market.
