Save 50 Percent of Training Costs Through Automation
Organisations are often faced with the daunting task of training and engaging their employees. This challenge is amplified for organisations with a larger feet-on-street presence. The task before one of India’s largest insurance companies was no different.
What was the challenge?
It used to spend copious amounts of time, energy and resources to train their 1,000 strong staff (90% of them millennials!), not to mention the loss of productive time and opportunity cost.
It faced multiple challenges ranging from planning and organising training interventions for a workforce distributed across 1,300 branches in 490+ regions on an ongoing basis, facing delays in training interventions, on-boarding of new employees to measuring training effectiveness.
With a large and scattered employee base, these problems are common across all banking and insurance companies. With millennials proliferating these industries, learner preferences are shifting towards self-paced learning through bite-sized and easy to consume content.
“It becomes extremely important for organisations to understand the underlying dilemma of a learner and his abilities to cope up with the current learning systems in a typical organisational setting.”, says Rajesh Kodoth, Chief Business Officer, HandyTrain.
The HandyTrain Solution
The Insurance company took this challenge head on. It overhauled its existing training system by bringing in cutting edge technology in the form of HandyTrain.
The result – Within 90 days, it imparted more than 2,000 man-hours of training to all its employees with zero-loss of productive time. This was made possible by HandyTrain – an Artificial Intelligence-aided training and engagement platform for corporate employees.
What was the impact?
To counter the challenges and to make it easier for the employees, HandyTrain’s mobile-first solution proved to be extremely beneficial and it catered to all the learning and engagement needs.
With a staggering 50% reduction in direct training expenses, it trained 1,000+ employees across geographies with zero lead-time from joining to on-boarding. 7 training interventions were conducted simultaneously, across hierarchies and functions. This innovative deployment saw the company get recognised as one of the Best Workplaces by Great Place to Work®, which also recognised HandyTrain as a “Best People Practice.”
“With a pan-India presence, deploying training interventions simultaneously for all users across our organization was a distant dream. With HandyTrain, we could foresee this dream turning into reality.
We on-boarded 500+ users across 28 States and 490 Regions in India in less than 3 days, for our training intervention.
Updating the training content and tracking learning progress has never been easier. We have already rolled-out 5 training programs simultaneously to over 1,000 users, all of which were well-received, with an average user rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 and glowing reviews. Now, managing trainings at a scale becomes a smooth process with HandyTrain.”
