While all professionals need to be experts in their field, no matter which industry they’re engaged in, it’s especially important for healthcare staff to be fully qualified and trained. After all, they work with patients who need treatment and care, so the cost of personnel error can be extremely high here.  It is for this reason, and the compliance requirements that healthcare companies need to adhere to, that employee training is critical in this industry. However, the days when organizations could gather all their staff in a room for hours-long training are long gone. Modern employees prefer to learn at their convenience, and in digestible "chunks" that fit into their busy schedules. So, training programs, the content format, and the way in which they’re delivered must be aligned with this.  The only way to incorporate flexibility into workplace training is to move it online. In this eBook, we’ll provide you with everything you need to launch online training in your healthcare company, from a step-by-step guide to practical insights and tools that will help you maximize learning effectiveness.

Training Today In the wake of a global pandemic, the world of education went virtual. As businesses reopened and hybrid or on-site work cultures made an exciting return from mid-2021, some virtual training opportunities continued their meteoric rise. L&D leaders witnessed greater effectiveness with virtual onboarding, compliance, procedural training, and other skilling programs. The training was better received by learners and training outcomes were far superior. Virtual procedural training is today embraced by diverse industries—manufacturing, healthcare, high-tech, and beyond. Professionals who have spent decades in interventional medical device education believe virtual procedure training is here to stay. Thriving in the new digital setting, it offers increasingly immersive learning environments to a globally dispersed and diverse cohort of students. Similarly, in the manufacturing industry employees report increased safety awareness, and develop conditioned responses, problem-solving skills, and muscle memory—most often even before they are on the job! The paradigm shift to facilitating and receiving virtual procedural training today is undeniable and has opened new doors in training methodologies and learning environments. Learning professionals new to virtual training may be wondering: What makes immersive learning environments like virtual reality and game-based learning top the charts for learning effectiveness? How have companies capitalized on this trend? What are the use cases and success stories of companies that are riding the wave? This eBook will go on to address such burning questions. Comprehensively explore ways to implement games and virtual reality to make training immersive and engaging, and deliver better learning experiences for your learners.
Cybersecurity training has quickly and quietly become a mainstay for required training programs at many organizations. As more employees find their jobs require some form of technology and data management, the need for proper training on how to keep company records safe becomes apparent. One industry estimate claims that the average employee in the US maintains 70 to 80 passwords for various systems throughout the course of their job. Without proper vigilance, it seems like only a matter of time before there is an exposure to a data breach. Complicating this issue is the strategy around learning objectives for cybersecurity training. Because it is so commonly viewed as an annual event, and so much of it is a refresher, engagement with the material is stereotypically low. Learning leaders should pay attention to strategy here. If training feels like a simple box-checking exercise that lacks meaningful updates or is delivered in a rote style, their employees are likely not to retain the information. Data and system architects can only do so much. Every employee with access to systems with sensitive data is inherently playing a role in safeguarding that data. And, just as the technology is always changing to maintain that security against new and developing threats, so too should the training efforts. In this eBook, we focus on how organizations can update their strategy to deliver more engaging and effective cybersecurity training. Topics include: Avoiding routine delivery Industries with specific challenges in cybersecurity training Creating conversations on best practices Tracking certifications in the LMS Understanding the costs of doing nothing
Exceptional learning leaders are acutely aware of the importance of how learning and development is viewed, utilized, and measured in an organization. Often, they must act as a strategist, sales consultant, and publicity agent for the learning programs they create. Getting and keeping buy-in from the necessary stakeholders in an organization is crucial to sustainable L&D programs. Ensuring that learning programs are relevant to the company’s reality requires an ongoing dialog with the key stakeholders. This eBook examines recurring goals, concerns, and opportunities that often show up with typical roles in the organization. We also break down ways to communicate the value of L&D that may ring true for them. (This eBook is the third of a 3-part series that examines the early and middle and ongoing stages of using an LMS and the roles that stakeholders in learning can play in the process.) In this eBook, we look at commonly recurring roles in many organizations, their viewpoint on learning and development programs, and how to get stakeholder buy-in on learning. Topics include: Aligning programs to broader, organizational goals How to sell L&D plans to the C-suite Appealing to line managers Engaging employees in learning objectives
