5 Corporate Training Lessons from Airline Safety Videos

Posted by Rachael Jones on Nov 9, 2017 10:13:55 AM

TOP TRAINING COMPANY BEST PRACTICES

When you take a flight, do you watch the airplane safety video? Be honest.

Many inflight safety videos are good examples of what NOT to do in corporate training videos. They are often boring and if you look around the plane, pretty much no one pays attention to them.

Several years ago, Virgin America tried to address this issue by producing an animated safety video featuring wacky characters. The voice over was delivered in a mildly sarcastic tone, as if to say, “Yeah, we know you’ve seen this a hundred times but we still have to show it so at least we can try to make you smile”.

TOP TRAINING COMPANY BEST PRACTICES

  • 1% of a typical work week or just 24 minutes is all most employees spend on learning and development
  • To learn what they need for their jobs, 70% of employees access search engines and 50% to 60% look for online courses

TOP TRAINING COMPANY BEST PRACTICES


It has been widely reported that a work culture supporting employee engagement leads to greater employee retention. The Gallup survey “State of the American Workplace” found that only one-third of employees are “engaged” at work – they love their jobs and work hard every day to improve their organizations. That means two-thirds of employees are not engaged – 51% are “just there” and 16% are “actively disengaged”, miserable in their jobs and destroying much of the good work done by engaged employees.1

Posted by Ashley White on Aug 5, 2015 9:32:00 AM

“Companies reporting strong Leadership Development Programs are 1.5 times most likely to be found atop Fortune magazine’s ‘Most Admired Companies’ list.” 

As most experienced leaders know, people come in all shapes and sizes, and what works for one employee in terms of communicating, motivating, giving feedback, etc., doesn’t have the same results with another employee. Becoming familiar with these behavior styles and recognizing your own allows you to adjust your behavior to meet others’ needs. It will take the most effort to relate to employees who demonstrate the style you least identify with.
