What do you do to streamline your processes? For instance you have implemented an ERP system and your employees are also equally excited to try out the new system. But are you sure that your employees are trained enough to handle the system? Was simulation a part of their training course? Ask yourself. Today with the count of millennials rising in the workforce, learning simulation has become one the important task in every organization. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of learning simulations in corporations:
- Flexibility (Anywhere, Anytime)
What makes simulation different from other training? Usually organizations train their employees in a classroom but simulation learners are capable of completing the training modules on their own. For employees these training modules are flexible as they can slow down or speed up according to their learning style. The benefit of employees being trained at their own pace is that they ought to become more engaged with the organization. This will increase the overall performance and rate of retention of the organization. Thus for employees working at different locations learning simulation is like a boon.
You may not be able to rely on traditional training in a classroom setting as the style of teaching, frame of reference and perspective will be different. On the other side in learning simulations all the trainees will be exposed to same learning simulation and whatever information communicated that will be in a consistent manner. No matter how many people attend the training all are assured to receive same and reliable training through learning simulation.
- Better Employee Engagement
Real effect of learning simulation reflects on two factors one is better engagement and the other is higher retention of the employees of an organization. Both the things are possible with the available authoring tools in any business. Apart from the technical elements the instructional method is equally engaging and interesting. In learning simulations the learners can link their skills to their training goals. Some of the other additional tools that make learning simulation more communicating include case studies, videos, PDFs and images.
Several costs are involved in traditional training methods such as rent of space, communication to employees, trainer, equipment rented and other costs. By learning simulations all these costs get eliminated as the employees can be trained at their own workstations as there is no need for a trainer or a space devoted for training purposes. The only expenditure is during the initial setup of the training simulation.
- ROI (Return on Investment)
Last but not the least organizations by learning simulations can measure the return on investment. An organization that employs learning simulations, by default it has to be equipped with a learning management system. This system allows companies to keep a track on their employees’ strengths, weaknesses and learning performance.
This way an organization will have a clear vision of how employees are progressing. Being aware of employees’ strengths and weaknesses, companies can draw appropriate development plans for succession planning purposes and better job placements.
Simulations have vast popularity because of its ability to explore and learn via games, interactive solutions, animated visuals and more. They help create a real environment, an outcome of tested skills and knowledge in a fun mode. At Tricon Infotech simulations built, allow the students take elementary or professional courses to apply their acquired knowledge into a simulated world.
Through our simulations we emphasize on giving a learning environment that makes individuals stimulated, motivated and energized. We present complex concepts through visuals, 3D representations & interactive by imitating the scenarios in reality.
