If you wish your employees seemed more enthusiastic about mandatory training, pick a corporate event venue that will help them to change their thinking. Where you decide to have your event makes a big difference, especially if your training program is too good to miss out on. Here are a few of our top tips for making mandatory training exciting.
Focus on relevance: While an outstanding venue can add a lot of benefits to your training program, offering the right content is still fundamental. Maybe your employees are hesitant because they have had unfortunate experiences in the past with trainings that felt like a waste of time because they were too basic or didn’t really apply to what they do at work. Get their input when you’re making training plans, and communicate regularly to let them know that this training can help them to develop their skills and their careers.
Offer incentives: Having fun increases learning, and rewards are motivating. Use games, quizzes, and videos to make training sessions more interesting. Consider reimbursing employees for their travel expenses if your training is being done off site. Give everyone a thank you gift for participating like a company t-shirt or a gift card to a popular store or local lunch spot. You could also say thanks by scheduling a special meal or entertainment event at the end of the session.
