21 Apr IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW NORM AFTER COVID 19? DON’T FORGET TO TRAIN YOUR EMPLOYEES
Around the world, countries have been hit hard by the Covid 19 pandemics and companies are starting to grapple with questions about what are the best measures to introduce in the new work guidelines for an indeterminate period of time.
People who are fortunate enough to have not lost their jobs will finally go back to work, the majority of companies will have to implement an exhaustive list of new safety measures according to different initiatives of the industries. There will be some degree of changes in the way daily work is carried out depending on the workplace risk assessment guidelines that have been drawn up.
Organizations often revise or redefine how work is and should be done, drawing on the experience of the key personnel within the organization. But no matter how an organization frames its initiative, these changes may cost time and money to plan, design and execute the change. Yet organizations often fail to invest to train its people on how to work through the new processes.
Usually when we’re redesigning the way that people do work differently in the name of improvement on safety and health, we need to understand how implementation can succeed by using what we know about how people learn. We need to have a training plan created to help introduce a new process to show how these plans can be executed to achieve its learning objectives.
