Bite-sized learning, 5 minutes a day.

by Tony Manwani, Co-founder

In a world where time is a precious commodity, Deloitte's recent research has thrown some eye-opening statistics into the mix. We all know that continuous learning and development are vital for personal and professional growth, but how much time do employees really have for it in their busy workweek? 


The answer might surprise you: just 24 minutes a week, on average! That's a mere 1% of their typical working hours dedicated to training and development. 


But before you dive into the depths of despair, let's unpack the solution to this conundrum: Bite-sized learning.


At BentoBot, we've always believed that the most effective learning experiences are those that seamlessly integrate into the daily grind. With the pace of modern life, it's no wonder that employees struggle to find time for lengthy training sessions. That's where bite-sized learning steps in as the superhero of knowledge acquisition!


Our approach, grounded in the latest research, is all about breaking down complex concepts into digestible, engaging nuggets of information. Why? Because it not only aligns with Deloitte's findings but also because it keeps learners more engaged.

Here's why:


Efficiency: Short, focused learning sessions fit perfectly into those precious 5 minutes a day. It's about making every minute count.


Retention: Bite-sized learning leverages techniques like spaced repetition, ensuring that knowledge sticks around longer in your memory. After all, it's not about the quantity of training but the quality of learning.


Gamification: Our top-spec gamification techniques maximize the reward psychology, making learning more enjoyable and engaging. It's like turning your training into a game that everyone wants to play!


Personalisation: With AI, BentoBot tailors content to individual knowledge gaps, ensuring that every employee gets the right information at the right time. No one-size-fits-all approach here!


Flexibility: Our learning suite can seamlessly embed into your existing platform, saving you time and effort. It's about working smarter, not harder.

Now, you might be wondering, "How can these bite-sized bits of knowledge lead to real change?" Well, the secret is in their cumulative effect, these tiny, focused learning moments can drive significant improvements in skills, knowledge, and performance.


So, next time you're pondering how to boost learning and development in your company, remember: the solution isn't about finding more hours in the day but about making the most of the ones you have. 

Ready to power up your performance? Bite-sized learning is your answer.
