Whether you want to use the Create tool to support on-boarding new hires or drive overall engagement, we've got some great tips for you!
Here are the top 3 Create tips Grovo Admins (like you!) swear by to drive learner engagement and achieve their company goals!
1) Give Context Early On
A large media company uses Grovo to distribute Compliance training. This company discovered that one of the key ways to making Compliance training that employees enjoy is providing context early on.
Rather than just assign off the shelf training, this customer added 30 second videos of their CTO introducing their Information Security compliance training. Their CTO introduced three key pieces of information: what they were about to learn, why they were taking compliance training, and how this helped the company.
This type of lesson was assigned first in the compliance Campaign so that learners had a clear understanding of their upcoming training requirements at the start of each assignment.
The familiar company leader provided clear context to learners as to why the training was important, and drove employees at all levels of the company to complete their Compliance requirements on time.
Takeaway: Show learner's why the training is important to the company and their team, and demonstrate support from company leaders at the very start

2) Make lessons pop with company staples/familiar faces and places
Grovo's Microlearning® Library is robust but it's no secret that learners are more likely to explore lessons with familiar faces, places and skills that grab their attention because they're undeniably relevant to their work.
Let's make it happen!
A mid-sized media company using Grovo found that simply customizing title card images in lessons made it easier for employees to pinpoint which content was the most relevant to their organization.
This company frequently featured images such as company conference rooms, familiar co-workers, and clear company logos. They found employees were more likely to delve into a lesson when greeted by relevant and relatable images from the start.
This company took customizing their content to the max by labeling all of their proprietary content with a custom company tag. The tag allowed employees to easily pinpoint what content is relevant to their organization in a snap!
Takeaway: Call attention to content that's truly relevant to your company by including familiar images and using our custom tags to make browsing the library easy as pie.
3) Customize Grovo Content with Company Documents
If you're a large company, how do you deliver relevant content to all branches of your organization? A big manufacturing company with sites across the US makes use of Grovo Create to produce unique content that fits the needs of every employee!
With different factories across the country, this company customized a few of Grovo's Workplace Safety lessons to include company contacts, policies, and site-specific evacuation plans. Unafraid to mesh their policies with our existing content, this company added in cards and voiceovers to Grovo's Workplace Violence lessons with information that they knew employees would need to be on the lookout for. Employees learned right from the start that this was not just a general safety training, but was instead, relevant to them as individuals no matter where they were located. As an added bonus, company leaders were able to distribute policies to hundreds of employees with only a click of a button!
Takeaway: Don't be afraid to customize a Grovo lesson to match what you want to say! Add in company documents, voiceovers, and images so your employees know from the very beginning how the training is relevant to them. Need a place to start?
