Why Is This Billion-Dollar Tech Firm Ditching L&D Status Quo For A New Learning Philosophy?
In order to stay ahead of the curve, it’s important for companies to continuously develop and update their learning philosophies. What worked in the past may not work now, and employees can forget what they’ve learnt if there’s no tracking mechanism in place. That’s why this billion-dollar tech firm is ditching the status quo for a new learning philosophy. By doing so, they hope to better engage employees and ensure that they’re constantly learning and growing.
Managers did not have a clear picture of the knowledge gaps their team members have. This could help them identify areas of improvement from a knowledge perspective.
Reinforcement and retention
There were many other LMS platforms that helped with training. Many forget what we have learned over a period. Learning alone isn’t enough. Retaining that information and converting it into actions that would drive results was crucial. So, retention and application were key.
Fighting the forgetting curve
Employees needed a continuous learning mechanism. The traditional training methods did not help individuals retain the information. Forgetting was a real problem.
The on boarding process needed a revamp. This was to ensure that newcomers were trained on the necessary knowledge about the company before they started.
API integration made it easier to bring everyone on a single platform with less manual intervention. The integration allowed them to harness the potential of the existing software to the fullest. That was the power of RapL. It increased the productivity of other tools when integrated with RapL’s platform. It primarily focused on retention and reinforcement of knowledge. Training was available anywhere at any time and was mapped to their hierarchy level. Training was structured, and the learning paths were tailored to each employee based on their learning skills. Revamp and on boarding were quick and efficient.
“We use RapL to combine it with our existing LMS. It is an engaging tool for learners that helps them reinforce and retain information.”
