6 Tips to Improve Your Online Orientations in 2022

1) Make Sure Your Training Platform is Compatible

One of the main advantages of online orientations is being able to complete them anywhere and at any time. However, this is only true if you make them compatible with different types of mobile devices. Smartphone brands have become like clothing and cars, and each employee has different preferences. If you use a training platform that only works on certain devices and operating systems, you lose part of the benefit of going online.

2) Automated Registration and Paperwork

3) Connecting New Hires with the Company Leadership

When orientations are carried out online, the CEO and other managers can easily communicate with participants. This is more difficult with traditional classroom training, since you need to find an available spot in everyone’s agenda. Managers can also access the training platform to keep track of progress, giving feedback if necessary, and without having to wait for a final report.

4) Provide Suitable Training for a Diverse Workforce

Your workforce may include several age groups and cultural backgrounds, and your orientation program must be suitable for everyone. For example, if persons from another country are among your new hires, slang and jargon may confuse them. Also, you cannot assume that everyone is tech-savvy, which means you might have trouble with an orientation that involves complex software or apps.

5) Make the Most Out of Digital Forms

Digital forms are one of the best time-savers available for companies, and this not only applies for safety training and orientations. Traditional forms must be printed, delivered to each employee, filled by hand, collected and reviewed… and then you still waste time with data entry! However, all these steps are eliminated with a digital form, and the information provided by each employee is immediately stored. Instead of wasting time with paperwork during orientations, you can focus on training new employees effectively.

6) Use a Training Platform That Confirms Participation

Conclusion

Worksite orientations have two very important functions: they help new hires become a part of your team, and they ensure everyone has the necessary knowledge to stay safe. The orientation process can become more efficient when taken online, but you must make sure it still achieves the intended result. Device compatibility, automation, virtual forms and remote proctoring are some of the features that make online orientations more effective.
