83% of human learning occurs visually, yet the majority of companies produce text based induction training materials with a 10% effectiveness rate on recall levels.
Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) July 25, 2010
Digicast Productions, a safety and induction training video production house, today released a new white paper “Optimising Induction Training: Reduce Costs, Improve Quality and Talent Retention”. Around the world, many companies train new starters and contractors ineffectively often finding it difficult to get training messages to stick inside people’s heads. This paper outlines the impact of poor induction training, the high cost of face to face training and the growing importance of including visuals in training materials.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of human learning occurs visually, yet the majority of companies produce text based induction training materials that have a 10% effectiveness rate on recall levels.
Smart organisations who regularly need to train contractors and new staff are looking for a more streamlined, engaging and cost effective way to ensure staff absorb training messages.
This exclusive white paper addresses the various pitfalls of a poorly designed induction training process and what can be done about it. The report looks at:
- What current induction training programs are really costing companies
- The importance of avoiding a poor safety culture
- The emerging trend of using more visuals in communication
- How to make training messages sticky
- A little mistake that cost a Quarry $20,000 a year
