The Importance of Reskilling Employees for Organizational Growth

See Dojo360

Many employers understand the importance of upskilling their employees to make them better at their jobs, but relatively few recognize the importance of reskilling. Reskilling programs provide workers with the training they need to pursue a completely different career path without leaving their current organization, giving team members increased job satisfaction and motivation while saving organizations significant hiring and onboarding costs. They can help ensure that team members can re-up compliance training as well, whether that means passing a periodic safety test or maintaining industry-specific certifications. Advertising reskilling opportunities can also make your organization a more desirable destination if you’re looking into external candidates. Furthermore, reskilling can be a way to get skillsets into your organization that you wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. For example, software engineers command high salaries right out of college, but you can get the same skills for a fraction of the cost if you reskill an existing team member. If you aren’t sure how to launch a reskilling campaign, Dojo360 can help. 

We’re Turning, a company that developed Dojo360 as a cutting-edge learning engagement platform to help learners, instructors, and organizations get more out of educational programs. We are big believers in the e³ philosophy of equity, evidence, and engagement and built our platform to deliver on all three aspects. Whether you want to teach your administrative assistant how to code or help a cashier realize their management potential, Dojo360 offers all of the reskilling tools your organization is looking for. 

Why Should I Invest in a Reskilling Program?

Reskilling programs promote employee retention rates and improve company morale, allowing you to get more out of your team both now and in the future. That said, you need to create programs that will entice employees to want to reskill to realize the full benefits. Dojo360 is equipped with five standout features to make reskilling more effective:

  1. Personalized Learning Paths
  2. Every team member has different career aspirations and skills, and it’s important to let them pursue the reskilling opportunities that they are most interested in. Dojo360 allows admins to administer all types of courses through one central hub for maximal convenience. For example, team members who need compliance training can be enrolled in the appropriate course automatically. 

  3. Synchronous and Asynchronous Capabilities
  4. Dojo360 allows learners who are interested in the same topics to study together while also supporting on-demand playback of prior meetings, allowing learners to choose when and where they wish to reskill. This level of control promotes learner engagement and produces better outcomes. 

  5. Multiple Engagement Tools
  6. Most learners struggle to focus on lengthy educational videos and drawn-out lectures, causing them to disengage with the material. Dojo360 includes numerous features to help instructors promote engagement, from an extensive library of graphical assets to the option to add inline quizzes to break up big blocks of information. 

  7. Premium Data Collection
  8. Dojo360 automatically collects data on enrollment rates, completion rates, learner satisfaction, and how team members are using what they’ve learned, giving your organization’s stakeholders the evidence they need to determine the efficacy of your reskilling program. 

  9. Full WCAG 2.0 Compliance
  10. We strongly believe that every team member should have the same opportunity to reskill, and we’re proud to say that Dojo360 meets or exceeds all WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines). This ensures equity even for team members who may have visual or aural impairments. 

What Makes Dojo360 Such a Powerful Learning Tool?

If your learners decide to study the same skills, virtual breakout rooms allow them to exchange best practices just like they could in person even if they are miles apart. Likewise, instructors can share their best content, import existing PowerPoint presentations to streamline course creation, and integrate with learning management systems such as Moodle and D2L to deliver more engaging experiences to learners. Dojo360 makes reskilling more convenient than you could have imagined!
