One of the areas where Goodwill Industries of East Texas delivers training is safety, from handling workplace conflicts to staying in the loop with all regulations and clarifying issues related to diversity and inclusion. They’ve added Kahoot! to their training toolkit to reiterate safety training exercises with employees and increase knowledge retention. According to the CEO Kimberly B. Lewis, even though some of this content is rather complex and challenging, Kahoot! helped them make these training sessions engaging, fun, and, as a consequence, more efficient.
Challenging employees to be more aware of workplace safety
Many safety problems in the workplace can be prevented by making sure employees remember and retain safety rules and regulations. Recently, Kimberly and her colleagues noticed that workers compensation injuries had risen over the past year, and started visiting different locations to see if they could arrange additional training to turn things around.
They decided to use Kahoot! to actively challenge employees to be more aware and to prevent future workplace accidents. According to Kimberly, “Kahoot! keeps everyone’s focus and actively challenges everyone, because everyone is more engaged with the content and competing at the same time. It ramps up both knowledge retention and fun!”
