Let’s dive into how TRAENÁIL is different from other training programs.
Current training methods are ineffective, and often result in employees very quickly forgetting what they learned. Companies are left in the dark, hoping that what they trained on has been retained and will be used.
Unfortunately, most employers and employees are simply going through the motions. Employee training is usually handled in one of the following methods:
- Periodic Meetings/Presentations
- Virtual or In Person class
- Newsletters or emails
- Handouts, Guides, or Procedures
We’ve all attended be participated in one or more of these types of training. Management crosses their fingers in hopes that the employees learned something when in fact, studies have shown that without any meaningful reason or effort to retain the information, 70% of it is forgotten within 24 hours. Additionally, none of these provide any metric(s) that management can use to determine the effectiveness of the training or if changes need to occur. In the end, training doesn’t really happen – rather a virtual box is checked saying that training was provided.
TRAENÁIL provides systemic training and the material is presented in a simple and direct format so they employee goes through training that doesn’t feel like training. The company spends less time coordinating schedules and keeping attendance records, and instead can focus on content and results.
The same training model has been used for decades and companies continue to struggle with its ineffectiveness. Employees resent the model and are craving something different. This is where rewards-based training comes in.
Imagine an employee base that is engaged in learning and will actively seek out correct answers and solutions rather than guessing or relying on someone else to provide an answer. This is the heart of rewards-based training solution provided by TRAENÁIL. Rewards-based training motivates your employees to ‘want’ to learn or discover the correct answer. Many training programs simply push volumes of information on an employee and the only real motivation for that employee to care is that their job depends on it – Fear-based training. With TRAENÁIL, your employees are recognized for participating in training but more importantly, they are ‘rewarded’ for learning and knowing the correct answers or information.
To be effective, the ‘reward’ must be given immediately for the employee’s brain to correlate the two events (training and reward). There also needs to be consistency so that the process of learning becomes familiar and the employee realizes that good things come from learning and training. The TRAENÁIL learning system provides both: Immediacy and Consistency.
Recruiting and retaining employees is a great challenge to most companies. Embracing a culture of education goes a long way in ensuring a stable and productive workforce. Some companies ignore the desire for education by their employees and therefore struggle to remain competitive and compliant.
According to 2016’s Employee Engagement and Loyalty Statistics, today’s workforce and especially the new generation of employees place a very high value on education and have specific expectations regarding an employer’s education culture. Recruiting and retaining qualified employees requires a company to focus on development and provide the necessary education in a format that both engaging and rewarding. TRAENÁIL can be the launching point for your company’s education culture or an augmentation to it.

Most training programs are designed around point-in-time training. Training on current events, changes in technology, polices and other similar content are missed or delayed resulting in an ineffective training program and a false sense of security. How often an employee receives training is as if not more important than the content of the training.
Regularly spaced repetition of training will continually reset the forgetting curve till it becomes ingrained as a long term memory. So many training programs have large intervals between learning that employees will forget what they learned the last time and either spend time re-learning and missing new material or learning new material and never re-learning old material. With companies tightening their budgets, the frequency of training tends to be lessened but the expectations and requirements of training increase. The result is an ineffective model.
Systemic training creates a culture for the employee where they will be learning on a continuous basis. As the information is presented more frequently, they employee retains more and more information. When coupled with daily practice, job functions, and periodic validation testing the employee truly ‘learns’ the material. TRAENÁIL provides systemic training that’s direct, simple, and fun so that the employee has a greater chance of learning the material and the company has a more effective training program.
Employees prefer structure to chaos and they embrace those things with which they are familiar. Offering competing methods of training can create confusion and lower the effectiveness of all training. Consistency is the name of the game. With TRAENÁIL’s expansive training capabilities training will be effective and efficient.
TRAENÁIL is unique in that companies can customize their training to reflect current or quickly changing technologies, policies, procedures or strategic initiatives. Material that in the past was presented using one of the ineffective models can be restructured into TRAENÁIL so that the employees learning this same information via a very consistent method. The company then has the ability to drill down into the training data. This data is invaluable for understanding the effectiveness of the program, content and company culture.
