Learning on the Job – digitised for the workflow

I’m a newbie at Saffron and to the learning technologies industry, although a fairly recent graduate. So, learning itself has been more hands on…or rather theorising has been. As a new entrant, I’ve undergone an induction programme, similar to the one most new hires go through at a company, although Saffron’s is wide ranging and very structured.

I recognise that having a good induction plays a big part in the performance of new starters and affects how quickly or slowly they can be competent in their roles in an organisation – helping them to start contributing quickly or be considered a drain on existing staff.

I found the traditional elements of the training (face to face, elearning, webinars, podcasts) pleasant, manageable and effective. Everything made sense and I thought I had understood everything until it came time to putting my newfound knowledge to the test.
