If you missed yesterday’s post about ways to increase your value at work, read it now because then you’ll fully understand why you need to know about Grovo. You can best see why we love Grovo here and how it’s done wonders for training our own employees at 24 Seven.
It’s no secret that when you enter a new job, industry, etc. you’re going to need training… and fast! Companies want to bring you up to speed as quickly as possible and as the newbie you want to know what you’re doing so you can fit in asap, but it can be overwhelming. It’s impossible for any human to retain every detail of his/her new job during the first week let alone first day, which can be challenging for everyone involved. Lucky for us, Grovo solves that problem impeccably.
Why Grovo is 24 Seven’s secret training weapon
With apps like Snapchat and Instagram our attention spans are getting shorter and shorter, which is something companies and employees need to be aware of, since the way we process information is changing. Training can be perceived as a mundane task especially when it has to do with your job, but Grovo breaks down what you need to learn by segmenting crucial information into 60-second videos for maximized results in the shortest amount of time. Pretty great, right?
Grovo’s content library includes thousands of videos covering the tools and skills people need to do their jobs. Grovo has videos on soft skills like leadership development and methods for collaboration and productivity. The 60-second “instructional bursts” are carefully curated to meet the needs of today’s brains aka Millennials (yes, we’re talking to you!).
At 24 Seven “we’ve had great success using Grovo videos both to train our sales on team on new corporate marketing initiatives as well as on the ins and outs of our CRM (customer relationship management)” says Emma Raschkolb, Demand Generation Manager. Sorry for the biz lingo, but this is good stuff you could be missing out on and knowing this could mean adding to your soft skill repertoire! #winning
The results we have seen from Grovo include highly engaged employees asking for more, satisfied management since employees were so receptive, and culture consistency across all twelve of 24 Seven’s locations.
Who Grovo benefits
At a glance Grovo seems like it’s just for employers and if you’re an employee you might be thinking, ‘Yeah so why should I care?’. Well, you could be the turning point in the company by bringing Grovo to the higher-ups. You could be a human transformer by changing your company’s training game, (plus you get brownie points from your boss). Ultimately Grovo is a win-win for everyone.
Grovo might be something your company already has that you should definitely look into, or there might be another training resource available, either way, by taking initiative you’ll better your skills and excel on the job which will not go unnoticed.
