Research has revealed that employees retain only 10 to 20 percent of training content without reinforcement. Within a matter of days, more than half of the new knowledge is simply forgotten, and along with it, organizations’ investments in that training. By systematically boosting the training in the days and weeks following training, learners are provided opportunities for effortful retrieval which helps them to retain essential information.
The first release of BizLibrary’s reinforcement booster programs includes boosts for more than 1,200 interactive videos and video lessons, with plans to eventually boost all content within the BizLibrary Collection. Boosts arrive via email in the days and weeks following completion of a training lesson or course, and include quizzes, surveys, polls, and reflective questions that help your employees to retain essential information.
“We are extremely excited about the introduction of Reinforcement Boosters to our BizLibrary Collection. Our unique combination of short micro-learning content ‘bursts’ and ongoing reinforcement ‘boosts’ following the training will increase our clients’ training ROI by three to four times,” said Dean Pichee, CEO at BizLibrary. “This isn’t a marketing hype; this is based on scientific research on learning retention. The evidence shows that adding multiple reinforcements to training programs will increase retention from approximately 20 percent to more than 90 percent.”
“We have learned that by giving learners a series of opportunities to think about, recall and retrieve material in the hours and days after training, the probability of retaining the information is drastically enhanced,” said Debbie Williams, Vice President of Content Development at BizLibrary. “Boosted content creates a great after-training program that will enhance training delivered through The BizLibrary Collection. Providing these booster opportunities for recall will guarantee that the core training delivered will be remembered and transferred back to the workplace.”
