Video based training is an excellent training tool because it matches perfectly with the skills of today’s workforce. Forcing employees to read technical information is not an effective way to train your workforce because it doesn’t incorporate all learning styles. A training video provides the visual stimulus needed to teach visual learners. The voice overs describe in detail the procedure; this ensures auditory learners have a format that suits them. We use text to reinforce key points and then to review the information at the end of each chapter.
The video can even be formatted to incorporate a written test. This will keep the viewer actively listening engaged during the movie by looking for the answers to the questions asked. The test also provides management with great feedback on what each employee knows and need to improve on. As well it can provide a written record that each employee knows and understands the procedures, including safety procedures.
It is easy and hands off for management. The employee doesn’t need any supervision while watching a video, leaving management free to work. A video can never replace “hands on” training, but it can reduce the amount of “hands on” time needed to train new employees.
The DVD training video method has been proven to decrease the amount of time required for employees to learn new job skills. Employees learn faster and more accurately. The DVD training method systemizes the content being taught to new employees as well as how they are expected to perform the newly learned tasks. It guarantees that everybody is learning the best methods available. The biggest advantage is that supervisors are not required to oversee the training, freeing up their much-needed time.
The DVD training video method will save you money in two ways. The first is by aiding in the training of new employees. New employees are dependent on supervisors and veteran existing employees in the early stages of their development. This hand holding creates a drag on the supervisor’s and the veteran employee’s production. Using DVD based training can cut this time in half, thereby increasing production. The second way it saves you money is by re-training existing employees. Often one operator is significantly more productive than the others. Using a DVD to retrain under performing employees ensures that everyone is using the same techniques and getting the same results. This will lead to significant jumps in production.
Every job in your facility requires training. Most training procedures involve reading manuals, job mentoring and lots of supervisor time. eMotion Picture Studios will produce a detailed training video that is specific to your machine at your facility. This can be used to train new employees and to retrain existing employees.
ISO-Quality Management Systems
Documenting your ISO procedures in video form will help to ensure that they are followed. Reading page after page of ISO information could be the most tedious task in the world. Trying to get compliance with ISO procedures is a difficult task for any manager. Trying to get compliance by forcing employees to read ISO procedure manuals might be impossible. Our customized video would arm managers with a tool to teach and review the ISO procedures. The video can be programmed to test the viewers; this reinforces the content and increases employee retention. It also allows managers to track when employees have received ISO training. It eliminates excuses by employees; nobody can claim, “I didn’t know”. If ISO is vital to your business and supply chain, you need to document your procedures in a video form.
6-Sigma is the relentless quest for perfection through the disciplined use of fact-based, data-driven decision making. Our method of training is simple. We ask you to look at your data and determine who is your best operator. The purpose of our training is to improve the rest of your team to match the production of the best operator. We will work closely to determine the chosen operator’s methods, tricks, secrets etc. Our team will then work with that operator and documents all of his/her methods in a video format. This video can be used to retrain the other shifts’ operators and thus improve their statistics. Model the best. Improve the rest. Data driven training.
S.O.P Standard Operating Procedure
