What's getting in the way of effective onboarding?
Ineffective learning delivery: An outdated classroom-style learning model means modern workers don't learn effectively or retain information.
Deployment delays: It takes weeks, even months, to evolve training materials and get them to the frontline, so workers are using outdated manuals and guidance.
Disconnect from frontline: When new training or protocols don’t reach the frontline at all, workers have constant questions and become an extra responsibility for managers.
Inefficient training threatens retail survival
High turnover and ineffective training mean retailers are hiring constantly — especially during the pandemic. They’ve hired thousands of workers to cope with COVID-19, and must reskill each of them them before and after shutdowns to adapt to new ways of operating and serving customers.
“Based on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor, $55.96 billion could be saved in the U.S. annually by reducing onboarding time-to-effectiveness by one week. Reducing time for new-hire effectiveness by a week could [also] save companies earning $1 billion or higher $8.57 million.”
