Is Adaptive Learning the Key to Increasing Employee Engagement?

 

Should my company opt for an adaptive learning platform? Would investing in LMS systems with adaptive features really increase employees’ engagement and performance?


 

Adaptive learning makes the curating of individual learning tracks possible in real time; it is also referred to as individualised, personalized and non-linear. Essentially, tools such as quizzes are used to measure what the employee already understands, what employees can understand with support and what they do not understand.

 

What is adaptive learning anyway?
Adaptive learning makes the curating of individual learning tracks possible in real time; it is also referred to as individualised, personalized and non-linear. Essentially, tools such as quizzes are used to measure what the employee already understands, what employees can understand with support and what they do not understand. Based on this, the materials and exercises are curated for each employee, assessing gaps in their knowledge and finding the most efficient way for competency growth and development.

 

The biggest issues in corporate training today
We’ve identified two key issues facing corporate training programs: Return on Investment (ROI) and scalability. HR managers face an increasing demand of selecting the best training programs to invest in for company growth. A positive return means that employees are being trained in an efficient and engaging manner. However, the hours and money spent creating programs often yield to department-specific and one-size-fit all training lack efficiency and scalability.

 

Why invest in employee engagement?
Opting for adaptive learning goes hand in hand with investing in employee engagement. Keeping your company up to date on topics such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Blockchain is just as important as professional competences like leadership, problem solving and analytical skills needed to succeed in a constantly developing workplace. How can you ensure that training meets industry standards?

 

Furthermore, managers are able to give more personalised feedback based on employee performance. This learning experience in turn increases employee productivity, satisfaction, work quality and knowledge retention.

 

Adaptive learning platforms are able to personalise employees’ learning path by automatically curating content, level of difficulty as well as instructional delivery methods. Instead of wasting hours on mundane knowledge and tasks already mastered, employees acquire new knowledge through individualised learning paths that constantly adapt to their own pace. Data and metrics gathered from adaptive learning platforms facilitate the comparison and tracking of employee growth through an overview of benchmark levels. Furthermore, managers are able to give more personalised feedback based on employee performance. This learning experience in turn increases employee productivity, satisfaction, work quality and knowledge retention.
