Mobile devices are no longer used just for calls and messages. Now, you can shop, bank, search, learn, and do many more things on your mobile. Mobile training is convenient for learners who prefer learning anytime, anywhere.
If you are not convinced about using mobile learning for your employees, here are the top five benefits of using mobile training to boost the productivity of your staff.
Your employees use mobile devices in the workplace. This is how millennials prefer working. Why combat this trend thinking that mobile devices cause a distraction at work? Instead, try and use it as a benefit. Let your employees use their devices to access learning at the point-of-need. They will learn best if they are given the freedom to access learning when they require it most.
Your employees who travel frequently for work spend a great deal of time out of the office locations. In fact, they might not even have access to laptops or desktops, while traveling. Mobile learning is the best workaround for such cases. It is a method that distributes learning easily. This is a boon for industries that need to cope up with constant changes.
Just as using mobiles have become a habit, mobile learning solutions have become the first thing your employees turn to when encountering problems on the job. Suppose they are at the client site and require information on a certain process, they can access the learning at the click of a button. This on-the-job learning ensures that they understand the concept better and retain the information. In the long run, this results in enhancing work performance.
Traditionally, corporate training has been a significant cost, whether we think of renting learning space, funding employee travel costs, paying for teacher work hours or more indirect costs like the loss of potential profit due to employee downtime, while the training is in progress. But there are no such issues with mobile training. Not only does mobile learning reduce training costs, but it is also more effective.
On many levels, mobile learning is more adjusted to the needs of the modern learner. Your employees can access it anytime they wish to and from anywhere. They have the freedom to choose their learning path. They can decide the pace at which they want to finish a module, and not feel guilty about holding back the other learners. Mobile training modules are bite-sized, so, the learner engagement is high. Engaged learners are more productive to the organization.
Summing up, the general use of mobile devices is here to stay. And, it is up to individual businesses to adjust to the changing environment. Mobile learning is there for employees as a meaningful distraction and improves their performance by providing the knowledge they need, where and when they need it. As a result, mobile training positively impacts businesses by engaging learners, increasing productivity, and improving the bottom line.
