One of the most time-consuming tasks at work can be searching for the right information when you need it. Up to 20% of the working week, in fact. So what’s the tonic? Performance Support Tools – in the form of how-to videos, quick reference guides, eLearning, infographics, process maps and more – are learning aids that help and support employees at work.
Whether your employees need support navigating a new business process, using a new system or application, or understanding a concept – Performance Support Tools provide a useful memory jog right when it’s needed.
Here are our top four reasons why Performance Support Tools are essential for workplace success:
If your employees can access resources when and where they need them, they’re able to quickly find answers to their questions and crack on with the task at hand – without having to step away from their work or ask anyone else for help.
The Ebbinghaus Forgetting Curve suggests adults forget more than 50% of what we learn within an hour of learning – unless we have the opportunity to reinforce it through practice. Performance Support Tools can provide the little reminder we need to remember new ways of working.
It delivers long-term value
It’s near impossible to offer great classroom-based training courses to employees every day. However making the same content available digitally allows employees to access it 24/7, for as long as the content is still relevant.
It’s cheaper (and better for the planet)
Providing Performance Support Tools digitally – instead solely through classroom training – massively reduces travel and instructor costs, which can be up to 85% of classroom training delivery costs.
