Online Learning

At Torque, we believe that organisational learning needs to be considered within the context of the 4 EX Formula. In case you haven’t come across the 4 EX Formula is

  1. Conversation
  2. Community
  3. Function
  4. Reward

Viewing any employee experience intervention through the 4 EX lens helps remind EX professionals that every programme we develop needs to keep the employee at the centre, to develop what’s best for them.

Conversation

Programmes that allow the learners to set their own goals tend to work better because they offer the learner a sense of control and autonomy in the learning process. So, a pull strategy vs a push strategy. The challenge is, of course, facilitating that at scale. Digitally, is the answer, using question modules and surveys to find out what people want in terms of their on-the-job needs and their career ambitions.

We recommend that businesses maintain an open line of communication to inform strategy. One mechanism involves surveying your employees about the challenges of learning.

For this and more ideas, download our guide “Rethinking your L&D Strategy”.

Community

How effectively people learn is determined in a significant way by the learner’s context. What is your internal culture of learning? Does your organisation have a growth mindset? Do people feel like they have the time to learn? How is the learning supported after the learning intervention? Creating a culture and a community of learning will stand your organisation in good stead for growth and success.

Function

Learning needs to fit into the day-to-day work of the learner. Learning cannot be in contravention to a person’s day job. Step into the life of the learner and answer: What’s in it for me? Does the learning content provide real value to the learner by helping them to do their job better/connect better with their associates/progress further along their career path? If not, it’s time to rethink the strategy.

Reward

Learning is a type of conditional behaviour. People tend to learn when they are rewarded to do so – but it is not that simple. If a learner begins to take for granted the reward, the reward could have the opposite effect of demotivating the learning behaviour. So, we need to come back to the CONVERSATION element and find out what the learner really wants and needs and use that to shape our programmes.

So why use Torque’s Learning resources?
