Training Activities At Work

Training activities at work can help create more engaged, satisfied employees, providing an opportunity to learn in a comfortable and fun environment. There are many benefits to using activities at work, like better absorbed knowledge, more collaboration and cooperation between staff members, more ideas brought up by individuals, and more camaraderie within teams.

Structured Experiences

Management can add value to activities by using techniques that touch the head, heart, and skills at the same time. This holistic approach demands an underpinning of theory (for understanding), personal learning (for developing emotions), and practice (for developing skills). There are many ways of meeting these objectives, but the structured experience is the most convenient and powerful.

A structured experience is a vehicle for learning. Its structure permits a focus on objectives or an area of concern. The experience part engages the individual. Since the objective is to educate several senses at once, it is extremely important that the individual is fully involved.

Unfortunately, structured experiences have become commonplace and may become filler activities that management trainers use to simply entertain rather than inform and teach. The ubiquitous nature of structured experiences blunts their power as a learning tool. Like any overused activity, efficiency is lost unless great care is taken to select the "right" learning device and position it for maximum effect. Contact HRDQ for assistance selecting the right training products for your needs.

How Activities Can Help

The right activity can produce great results. With carefully designed training activities, participants can dive into a topic and come up with solutions in a specific environment. They can then take what they have learned and apply it to their own work outside of the activity. There are many different kinds of activities, but they all have one thing in common—they are essential tools for employee learning and development.
