Mindmarker constantly survey clients to ensure organizations achieve the desired results from training. The insight gained from HR professionals helped us formulate the following three questions to help HR professionals increase knowledge retention and change behavior:
Most traditional learning strategies are based on antiquated models designed for efficiency, not effectiveness. Dumping information and single exams on a learner doesn't achieve behavior change. Be sure your organization is implementing innovative learning approaches, like microlearning and adaptive learning, that track behavior change!
HR and subject matter specialists should work together to ensure objectives and measurements are linked to the way people work. Successful behavior change is less dependent on the content of the program and more on the employees’ willingness to embrace change. Consider how you define and measure reinforcement objectives for the learning path.
Once results are derived from reinforcement data, many HR professionals find it challenging to create accountability based on the results. Creating a reinforcement discipline for enterprise-wide learning begins with a precise understanding of the role of learning and development in corporate strategy.
