Pract.us helps you speed up your training results by using work experience in the work environment as your key training tool.
You get started faster.
With Pract.us, you don’t have to create videos and courses. You just need to identify a behavior you want employees to learn and some resources to help them, which can include other employees. You can also start in small steps. Since you’re not creating courses or videos, you can adjust and improve your cards and skills every day based on feedback from learners and mentors.
With the structure Pract.us provides, employees learn faster.
Pract.us lets you take the informal learning going on all around you and gradually apply structure as a way to support your team and track their learning activities.
When employees are learning informally in the workplace, they generally have little guidance or focus aside from solving the particular problem at hand. And they often have to scrounge for resources to help them learn. For example, 39% of respondents in an Aberdeen Group learning study from 2013 didn’t even know where to find company resources that would help them do their jobs.
Pract.us lets you provide the direction and support employees need, which in turn, helps them learn faster. In one study, employees who had access to support and resources for informal learning mastered skills in just 20% of the time needed by those learning without guidance.
Employees use their new skills faster.
In traditional courses, training doesn’t stop after the course is over. Employees have to figure out how to apply what they learned to their daily work. Sometimes, they need to practice new skills for a while before they get comfortable with them.
This takes time, and in most companies, this process is left entirely up to learners. There’s little support or follow-up from managers or HR. In the worst case, employees give up on applying the new skills, and training is never really completed.
With Pract.us, training takes place in the work environment, focused on specific work behaviors. And very often employees are training on skills they need right away. So not only can they see how to apply what they’ve learned, they have a strong motivation to do so.
If you already have a traditional training program, Pract.us can help employees transfer those skills faster to work. And if you don’t have a traditional program now, consider harnessing informal learning to create an effective system that gets results fast.
