Amplifire is the best training tool this company has used. We have competitions to see how few iterations it takes to get mastery. The guys are high-fiveing each other when they get ten right answers in a session. You would have thought they just won the lottery.

The Workforce Safety Challenge

Successful workforce training requires more than checking the compliance box. When looking to reduce the number of adverse incidents one size-fits-all training doesn’t guarantee the safety of your workforce or address systemic misinformation that gets passed from supervisors to employees.

Solution

An efficient and effective platform that adapts to learners as individuals. It engages employees around critical content so that it sticks in long-term memory for quick retrieval on the job. Amplifire can also pinpoint incorrect institutional knowledge in the minds of supervisors and managers that gets passed on to the workforce.

Amplifire’s outcome-based learning platform improves employee performance by reducing Confidently Held Misinformation (CHM) that leads to adverse incidents. Not only that, because it is personalized to each individual’s knowledge gap, it significantly reduces training time.

Knowledge and CHM vary widely among employees

As seen here in an organization employing thousands of field service technicians, Amplifire can identify and fix knowledge variation at scale. Discovering variation among learners is something that no instructor or traditional learning method could detect or correct. With Amplifire, everyone moves to mastery along their own personal pathway and stays there.

Supervisor misinformation found and fixed

Almost 700 field supervisors had 32% confidently held misinformation regarding standard safety protocols.

Amplifire eliminated 6,998 instances of confidently held misinformation likely being passed to their teams.

Supervisor Misinformation

Supervisors who took the Amplifire safety course had less employee accidents

As theory suggests, if you can eliminate CHM from the minds of supervisors, they will be far better coaches and mentors for the people who work for them. In this case, the 699 supervisors and managers who learned about safety in Amplifire had employees with 2/3 fewer accidents.

Systemic CHM magnifies risk

Systemic misinformation involves a manager with CHM who is passing it along to his or her team. You can think of it as a cultural phenomenon—a mini culture within the larger organization that is sharing, believing, and making decisons based on the wrong information.

In this example, a large industrial manufacturer was plagued by $4 million in bacterial outbreaks that it couldn’t seem to stop at one location. The pattern shown here revealed that a lone manager who had refused to learn in Amplifire was re-indoctrinating his team with the wrong information.
