How to engage employees to keep up with tech trends

The lightning pace of technological developments is constantly reshaping the way we work. For companies, this transformation is both a blessing and a curse. Technology creates opportunities in production and productivity, but at the risk of leaving staff behind, unable to stay up-to-date with evolving skill sets and expectations.


The urgency of staff training in a variety of competencies - all of which essentially involve workload management training - is as palpable today as ever. Here we explore why staff need training to keep up and stay ahead of the digital curve.

What Happens Without Workload Management Training in the Digital Age?

Your organisation may be showing some of these six signs that staff are being outpaced by emerging technologies and trends:


1. Inefficient Workflow: Undertrained employees are likely to use outdated methods and tools, resulting in inefficient workflows. This inefficiency is apparent in slow work processes, missed deadlines and decreased output. Technology should streamline operations, but without adequate employee training, the opposite can take effect in the form of inefficient workflows.


2. Increased Error Rates: Outdated knowledge and skills can result in higher error rates. Technology provides solutions to reduce human errors; however, unskilled employees may inadvertently introduce mistakes that impact work quality, thereby potentially affecting client expectations and customer service.


3. Inadequate Problem-Solving: As technology advances, it introduces new challenges and complexities. Employees without proper training struggle to harness the technology and related processes that allow for rapid and effective problem-solving. Without this key ability, companies are exposed to financial losses, production downtime and reduced customer satisfaction related to challenges not quickly and adequately addressed by staff.


4. Reduced Innovation: In a rapidly evolving technological landscape, innovation is a key to staying competitive. Employees not properly skilled in new digital tools are at a disadvantage in contributing fresh ideas or creative solutions, thus limiting the organisation's innovation potential.  

5. Loss of Competitive Edge: Businesses that fail to keep their staff updated with technological advancements stand to lose their competitive edge. Competitors invested in training are better positioned to seize opportunities and adapt to market disruptions, potentially leaving less-prepared companies in the dust.  

6. Missed Growth Opportunities: Emerging technologies can open doors to new markets and revenue streams. Staff without training may miss out on these growth opportunities, limiting the organisation's capacity for expansion and diversification.    

Training that Truly Works in the Digital Age

It goes without saying that the goals of staff training would include rectifying the above six problem areas. In essence, workload management training would allow a workforce to:

  • Enjoy more efficient workflows

  • Reduce error rates

  • Increase problem-solving abilities

  • Enhance innovations

  • Remain competitive

  • Reach growth potential  

Certainly, each organisation will have their own training objectives as well. So how can you trust a workload management training provider to hit these critical marks while also addressing your organisation's particular challenges? This is where Priority Management shines. We stand apart from the rest by offering training that is:


1. Fully Customised Content: Priority Management collaborates closely with our clients before and during training to create tailored courses that align with the client’s workflow and goals. This training partnership with curated content helps to ensure that the outcome of the training is staff behavioural improvements that keep them ahead of technology changes and the competition.


2. Personalised Follow-up: We do not show up for the training and then call it done. We believe in coaching and follow-up. This is what creates positive habits. We offer individual coaching sessions after the training and can arrange a group refresher a few months after the initial training. In this way, we are part of the long-term solution in making your team optimally effective and productive.


3. Assessments and Impact Report: The core of our work is helping your working group realise measurable behavioural improvements. We assess our clients’ outcomes with an Impact Report. This measures gains in key metrics, based on surveys taken by participants a few months after training. Our unique Impact Report breaks down time saved on specific tasks and calculates the return on investment of the training.
