Mentored learning: develop an in-house training culture
Many companies are eager to develop an in-house mentoring culture. Among the many benefits of such a culture is cost-effectiveness, and most organisations are keen to improve productivity and 'do more with less'.
In fact, the advantages of this kind of approach go far beyond financial considerations.
CrossKnowledge has designed Mentoring on Demand in order to provide companies with structured methods for individualised training, the goal being to focus squarely on the specific needs of individuals.
The CrossKnowledge solution comprises a collaborative platform designed to encourage on-going dialogue between the 'mentor' (in-house trainer) and the 'learner' (staff member). It allows them to interact via a chat interface.
The mentor supports the staff member as he or she puts newly learned techniques and concepts into practice, thus making the training more effective in the long term as it is applied directly to real-life situations.
