Virtual Meeting & Training Production Support
Accounting is a critical and complex area that requires continued education and training to stay ahead of the curve. In-person training sessions have been a tried and true method for accounting professionals looking to acquire new knowledge and skills. However, with the recent shift to virtual training, many professionals have found it challenging to engage with the material and get the most out of their learning experiences.
At Insignia, we understand that the key to effective training is engagement. That is why we have developed a solution that ensures participants are engaged, learning, and retaining knowledge. Our training focuses on meeting participants where they are, with relevant and valuable material, ensuring they are equipped to excel in their accounting careers.
The Importance of Virtual Training:
Virtual training has quickly become the norm in today’s ever-changing world. However, it is not just here to stay due to the global pandemic, but it also offers numerous advantages over traditional in-person training. The flexibility and convenience that virtual training provides have been lauded by accounting professionals as a boon to their busy schedules.
Virtual training offers the following unique advantages:
Flexibility: Virtual training can be done from anywhere in the world, as long as there is internet availability. This means that accounting professionals who work remotely or frequently travel can access top-quality training from the comfort of their homes or hotels.
Cost-effective: Traditional in-person training can be costly when considering travel, accommodation, and meal expenses. Virtual training eliminates these costs and offers an affordable alternative that is accessible to all.
Engagement: Virtual training can be designed with various interactive tools, such as gamification, live polling, and breakout sessions. These tools ensure that participants are engaged, that their learning is retained, and build a community of participants with different backgrounds.
Designing Virtual Training for Accounting Professionals
Designing effective training for accounting professionals requires more than just transferring in-person training online; it requires a comprehensive approach that accounts for the unique requirements of virtual training. At our training and production support firm, we have developed a framework that incorporates the following elements:
Analyze: Understanding the accounting industry’s current environment is essential in designing an effective training program. Our team of experts analyzes the current trends, challenges, and best practices in the accounting field to ensure that our programs are relevant and in line with industry standards.
Evaluate: Evaluating participant needs and experience with virtual training helps guide the design process. We conduct surveys and focus groups to obtain feedback and recommendations from past participants to ensure we understand their specific needs and structure our program accordingly.
Personalize: Personalizing the training program to meet the needs of each participant is vital to ensure that they are engaged and retain information. We use various methods such as assessments, office hours, and interactive activities to help participants see the relevance of the material to their career.
Deliver: Delivering virtual training requires a certain level of technical expertise and experience on the part of the facilitator. We ensure that our facilitators have experience utilizing virtual platforms such as Zoom or Teams, possess excellent communication skills, and can keep participants engaged throughout the session.
We develop and tailor our training programs to ensure that they meet the highest standards of excellence, relevance, and engagement, making sure participants retain and utilize their new wealth of accounting knowledge.
