Here are a few tips that will help you begin the process of implementing a reinforcement program for your organization.
Make Reinforcement Part of Corporate Culture
When implementing a reinforcement program, make the program a part of your corporate learning culture. Reinforcement should never be an "additional program" to your training course.
Reinforcement if more effective when learners accept reinforcement as a part of their overall development program instead of a small part of your training.
Make Sure Management is Onboard
Managers should emphasize the importance of completing reinforcement messages as a way to help them continue their growth within the company.
When implementing a training reinforcement program, make sure that managers, stakeholders, and trainers understand the concept of what training reinforcement is and how to accomplish it.
A common technique is to have managers and trainers go through a shortened version of the reinforcement program. This allows them to experience the program and implement helpful feedback loops.
Think About Program Timing
When using a reinforcement program, it is important that the content can be pushed globally, whether through email or mobile notifications.
Timing is one of the many factors that go into the design of a goal-based reinforcement program. Successful reinforcement programs send notifications based on when your employees are busiest or least busy.
At Mindmarker, we create reinforcement timelines for your participants, sending content only when it’s most appropriate.
Localize the Content
With global learning comes multiple languages. Sending reinforcement messages in the learner’s native language can dramatically improve the reinforcement program’s engagement and effectiveness.
Integrating native languages and timezones helps removes any barriers between learners around the world. Mindmarker makes training reinforcement easier than ever with our intuitive, cloud-based solution.
