This is how important continuous learning becomes for individuals and organisations in a fast-moving and digital era
Do you get continuous inspiration and opportunities for you as a person and colleague to develop in the short and long term? After all, training and knowledge acquisition is an ongoing process in modern working life - with new ways of acquiring skills, it doesn't have to be a long step to new insights. Today, more than ever before, it is extremely important to understand your customers and earn their trust.
Knowledgeable, skilled and well-trained employees are crucial to a company's success. By improving skills, an organisation can remain adaptable and competitive, ultimately contributing to increased productivity, innovation and revenue.
In addition, continuous learning is an insurance policy against falling behind and missing crucial transitions that make staff - and the company's core business - redundant.
Competence and training can be achieved with little or no cost, except for an investment in extra time and attention. Given that the benefits outweigh the costs, improving the overall competence of the organisation is an opportunity that all employers should embrace.
Different types of skills development that work both online and offline
Today's successful companies need to be able to teach and train their employees in different ways. There are many ways to access training, we as individuals learn and absorb knowledge in different ways. At AddPro, we want to bring our customers and partners along for the ride. In the past, he who knew the most, owned the most. Today, we believe that the one who can take in, manage and even refine the most information is the one who will be the most successful.
The new normal after the extraordinary year of 2020 is quite different from what we have been used to, but we are solution-oriented and believe in the ability of people to adapt and act quickly to a new reality and in it find new opportunities.
Here are some examples of how new knowledge can be communicated IRL or online:
A simple and cost-effective way to improve employee skills. Doesn't always contribute to new skills, but usually to improving current ones. Good coaching also makes it easier for staff to learn new things when everyone is on the same skill level.
Resources and motivation are needed to strengthen skills. This could be seminars, e-learning, manuals, books or articles. Here, as a company, you can work with gamification and allow employees who go through "voluntary training" to be rewarded according to performance. Both the organisation and the individual employee benefit from a higher level of knowledge.
This is common for new hires, but can also be effective for those looking to move on within the organisation. The key here is to identify key people within the company and have other employees observe them whenever possible. The shadow is not performing any tasks, but is there - or via Teams - to see what is happening, ask questions and discuss. The aim is to learn more about the organisation, specific IT systems and different functions.
By giving employees a challenge during a workshop, they will sharpen current skills while building new ones. Increased collaboration between colleagues makes the organisation more effective! Workshops can also be conducted online.
Knowledgeable partner ensures continuous learning
With the right IT partner and supplier, you get a constant input of new knowledge and skills. A partner who is stable and regularly invites you to webinars and inspiration to share insights.
- We have noticed that such occasions arouse a great interest in the participants to continue to deepen their knowledge in different areas and therefore we will in the near future publish a new format for our customers and partners to strengthen skills and invest in knowledge that ultimately leads to cost savings and increased efficiency, says Sales Manager Nicklas Henriksson.
Skills development is crucial for all professionals in today's changing world. It leads to improvement within the organisation, but also on a personal level to keep up to date with new technologies and methods.
Continuous learning is the way forward!
