AFA I.T. Training – Level 1

posted in: Latest News | 0

As part of our dedication to the development of our staff and recognition of their investment in themselves, we launched the Atlas Furniture Asia I.T. Training (Level 1) set of training videos, staff quiz and formal certification.

Most of the training centres around either Office365 and how it is helping transform our company on the whole, or focuses on specific tasks and skills to help our staff work faster and more effectively.

As Atlas Furniture Asia undergoes major restructuring – from our staff, to our systems, how we work to how we report on our progress – I.T. training is crucial to allow our staff to leverage the excellent systems we are implementing for them.

Our staff are bright, dynamic and fast learners. They are already consuming these training videos faster than we can produce them!

Microsoft Stream

The added benefits of posting training videos to Microsoft Stream (MS’s version of YouTube and private to our organisation) are:

  1. Non-native English speakers can watch the videos as many times as they need to
  2. Stream automatically writes and publishes the transcript to the video, making it very powerful without needing to invest the extra time
  3. You can watch the videos either faster or slower than originally recorded
    1. If it’s long and you want to get through it, speed it up – perfect for native English speakers with a solid IT background
    2. If you really want to soak up the information, slow it down!
