Ambitious and motivated employees aren’t often satisfied with the status quo. They may aim to get their foot in the door by accepting an entry-level position, but they have their eyes set firmly on a larger goal, one that involved an active leadership position.
Unfortunately, some of these employees aren’t necessarily qualified or otherwise prepared for that next climb up the career rung. Instead of bursting their bubble, you can encourage them to take e-learning courses.
After all, as their employer, you don’t want to lose all the skills and enthusiasm they have to offer. You also don’t want them to take what they’ve learned from your company to a competitor and use your successes against you.
So what can you do?
The solution might be right in front of your face at the computer: E-learning training.
These employees are ready and willing to learn the skills necessary to advance their careers. With some guidance and training suggestions from mangers, they can take care of day-to-day responsibilities while training for a future job promotion. And because the learning happens online, it can take place anywhere. There are no travel expenses and ambitious employees can even train on their own time from the comfort of their home or after office hours.
This effectively helps them skillfully master the art of time management, one quality that becomes even more essential at the upper management level.
In a sense, e-learning that is done right allows employers to mentor their employees online. After suggesting or developing a particular online training course using ELEARNINGFORCE`s SharePoint LMS, managers can track the progress of employees, view event participation and monitor course certifications. They can also create learning and course status summaries and custom reports.
The collaborative environment of SharePoint LMS promotes relationship building between mentors and mentees and creates a unique, personalized learning experience. The ability for SharePoint integration makes it easy to connect with upwardly mobile employees through mail, calendars and chat.
When you have the right employee to promote, give them the tools needed to fast tracked and use e-learning and the various features of SharePoint LMS to your company’s advantage. It’s definitely a win-win situation for all involved.
