How to Train Remote Employees?

How to train remote employees

Remote training entails the practice of initiating, cultivating, and elevating the competencies of your employees from afar. It includes learning of various sorts from different platforms. It allows the management and training of people without ‘location’ limiting accessibility. In that sense, it is also time-saving because the focus is directly on the material and content of the work. Similarly, it is a more efficient method of training in terms of retaining work-life balance. But how to train remote employees? still remains one of the most complex questions.

There can be many more benefits of taking this approach. However, the process itself can be technical. In order to achieve the same levels of productivity and other benefits from virtual training as in-person training, certain strategies need to be executed. Some of these strategies can be as follows:

1. Access to Information

To begin with, it is essential that all employees can easily access the websites, content, etc. that they need to work on. For example, individual logins for the learners with Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication on the company LMS. Rapid access to the relevant programs means that the employees won’t be wasting time in reaching the online platform. Consequently, since they spend less time waiting for information, they can focus more on completing tasks.

This ensures a higher level of productivity. Other than access to the program. Apart from gaining entry to the program, tasks such as scheduling calendar invites for meetings or setting reminders can prove exceedingly beneficial. These factors contribute to supplementing reachability.

2. Setting Clear Expectations

Setting Clear expectations is a part of the overall effective communication with employees. Considering the physical differences, communication, and dialogue can become challenging aspects of this process. In order to avoid this, it is best if the expectations and roles of each employee are communicated at the very beginning. If each member is aware of their tasks from the very beginning, there are fewer chances of misunderstandings throughout.

An example of this can be holding an orientation session beforehand. The recruits can refer back to what they were directed to do in case of any confusion. Furthermore, in order to aid this, technology can be leveraged. Applications like Zoom, Basecamp, Slack, and Google Meet to coordinate and communicate with the team effectively.

3. Keeping the team engaged

Another possible setback of virtual training can be the lack of socialization. Minimum interaction among the workers can potentially result in a tense and uneasy aura. This could then affect the temperaments and therefore the work. It is crucial to foster a culture where team members are encouraged to connect on a personal level. Teams that have a genuine liking for each other often collaborate more effectively. This can be done through different mechanisms, for example, WhatsApp groups or casual social calls. Creating opportunities to celebrate team wins, personal milestones, etc. can also help build positive personal relationships.
