Corporate training, also known as workplace learning, is a system of activities designed to educate employees. The aim is to prepare the employees for their roles and imbibe the company culture into them. Having the company investing in the employees certainly makes the employees better understand the gravity of their job and also makes them feel important. For the company, corporate training presents an opportunity to mould the employees the way they want and prepare them for their responsibilities.
The term corporate training encompasses many different levels of training such as the induction of the company, niche skill sets, soft skills, etc. Designing your training program to be employee specific will improve learning efficiency and increase ROI. Typically, it’s the HR department that looks after arranging a corporate trainer for conducting training programs in larger organizations. They are the ones who identify the needs of training programs and make them available for the workforce accordingly. A few types of training programs are mentioned below:
Compliance training is often an obligatory part of the new hire onboarding process. It is a formal program that focuses on company policies or rules that enable employees and employers to avoid problems in the workplace and violations of the law. Most often, these are industry or job-specific policies. Compliance trainings may revolve around programs such as anti-harassment, diversity, business ethics, workplace safety, data protection, etc.
Whenever a newly hired employee is welcomed onboard, they are given this kind of a training which continues until they are able to work independently. The main purpose of this training is to streamline the new employee adaptation process, make them comfortable and quickly improve their productivity. The onboarding training program can either be generic for all employees that cover the general information about the company, its history, mission, vision, and values, as well as corporate policies and regulations or specific for a particular role.
Soft Skills & Hard Skills training
Soft Skill training involves working on personal attributes such as communication skills and personality development. These skills play an important role in the success and growth of a person and potentially of the organization as well. It is important for the employees to be able to interact well with the clients, colleagues, managers, and others in order to ensure smooth operation. On the other hand, hard skills are all about gaining master and developing an expertise at a specific task or a number of tasks to complete a job. It could be technical such as coding or generic such as project management.
