Maintain employee and company performance
Training shouldn’t be delivered once, but on an ongoing basis, so as to keep your employees and your company performing to the highest possible levels.
Of course, it can be time-consuming and logistically tricky to try and keep employees fully and effectively trained all the time.
Wranx uses short but regular drills and assessment that employees can do at times of their choosing to ensure that important knowledge is continually and effectively reinforced.
We were able to measure the impact of Wranx on our learners and found on average that those that had used Wranx regularly retained 16% more knowledge than those who did not use Wranx. As a learning professional I found the Wranx team very responsive to our needs and requests, and we will be continuing to use Wranx for our future learning programs.

Are you wondering why after training, you are unable to recall what you have just learnt? Adam Robinson, author of What Smart Students Know said: “Don’t confuse recognising information with being able to recall it.” This quote is important, as it highlights the common method of passive learning, which is the exact opposite how we want to retain information. We want to use active recall - encouraging our brain to work independently to retrieve past learnt information from your long term memory. To be able to retain new information, you have to work your brain harder and build new connections to be able to actually absorb the information.
Have you ever walked out of a training session and realised you’ve already forgotten some of the information you were told? If you think not, perhaps you’ve just forgotten that too?

Training is a key part of any organisation. It doesn’t just enable employees to do their job, but it plays a role in determining how productive and efficient an organisation is. For this reason, it’s important to be both clear on what the goals of any training are before it’s implemented and to evaluate training once it’s complete to determine how effective it has been.
