While the learning curve is fascinating, even more curious and frustrating is the forgetting curve. Learners forget information nearly as fast as they obtain it. In fact, it is said that within one hour, we forget nearly 50% of what we learn. Even worse, within 24 hours we forget almost 70% of what we’ve garnered.
And worst of all, we forget nearly 90% of what we learn after just one full week.
So what does this mean for your well-designed and executed training program? Your employees require more than just one initial training period to absorb the information; they require performance support and ongoing training.
How can you ensure you provide them with proper tools to promote ongoing learning? Try these 5 proven ways to provide your employees the ongoing training they need to succeed, and to fight the forgetting curve in your organization.
