Business never stops, even in the summer months, but sometimes your employees need a boost to stay motivated. In a recent survey of edX For Business customers, 75% of respondents said that engagement is a top challenge in implementing a corporate learning program. While employees are clamoring for training and new skills, our research shows that intentions and motivation can waver at different points in the learning journey as life and work responsibilities compete for time and attention.
At edX For Business, we’re dedicated to helping our clients get their employees across the learning finish-line and level up with new skills, enhancing their contribution to the organization and their overall employability.
1. Create Space to Learn on the Job:
edX For Business data demonstrates that there is a statistically significant positive relationship between workday learning and course completion rates. But learning doesn’t have to consume a lot of time and eat away at worker productivity. In fact, allowing and encouraging your employees to take just a few minutes to engage, apply, and discuss goes a long way in cementing learning. It also provides an immediate application and learning in context. Here are some ways you can support workday learning opportunities:
2. Celebrate Achievement:
Recognition and motivation go hand-in-hand. Even the smallest acknowledgements help to support learner engagement. A few simple ways to recognize those who earn certificates include:
3. Give Your Learners a Running Start:
Nothing succeeds like success. If you are launching or in the early stages of a corporate eLearning program, this is a prime opportunity to support and reinforce employee motivation and engagement.
Successful learner engagement leads to tangible re-skilling and workforce transformation, which are essential for organizations to adapt to the changing business landscape. Once your company has provided learning to its employees, engagement and fruitful learning are just a light lift away.
