No one denies the benefits of organizational learning and development, but it can be difficult to convince busy employees to take time out of their schedules to study, especially if this time is outside of working hours. Training Managers are routinely faced with the tricky issue of how to motivate employees to study, particularly in non-business-critical subjects.
Having operated in the field of corporate language training for over 45 years, at EF we have some tried and tested insider techniques to tackle this issue.
This webcast will take a look at what we have found really works when motivating employees to study, including:
Punishment vs reward – which situations to use them in
communicating expectations – and how to make students want to meet them
Relating study to job performance – how to make this seem like an opportunity rather than a threat
Relating study to career goals – building a path to visualise success
Tracking improvement –using results in feedback to boost performance
Creating a sense of competition – in a healthy way to boost the desire to learn
