With shrinking profit margins the norm these days, it can be tempting for business owners and corporate managers to cut corners by delaying employee training programs or even eliminating them altogether.
At first glance it seems like a good idea, but it’s definitely a cost-cutting measure that should be avoided. Here’s why:
Knowledge is power. Whether you want employees to learn more about the company’s business philosophy, train them on a new skill or teach them about updated business practices, the best way to do this is through company-wide training. This way everyone is on the same page and you’ll never have to hear the old excuse: “I didn’t know we were doing things that way now.”
Productivity is important. Studies show that when employees are properly trained, their productivity skyrockets. There is no more time wasted trying to find a manager to answer a question or work time lost to frustration as employees try to figure out how the latest computer upgrade works. By taking the time to implement a comprehensive training program, your company will actually save time in the long run.
Technology is simplified. It’s long been thought that employee training and development was too expensive or time-consuming to implement. However, with today’s technology and cutting-edge products such as ELEARNINGFORCE`S LMS 365, that’s no longer the case.
With a single Office 365 log in, LMS 365 allows managers to create and manage course materials within Office 365. They can also view progress reports by individual and by course.
Online learning software like LMS 365 can quickly educate employees when it is convenient for their schedule and from wherever they are at. No more company-wide meetings or hard-to-hear conference calls. Simply provide log-in details and LMS 365 gives learners the ability to begin the training session with a click, check their class status and review their learning progress.
In addition, LMS 365’s administration capabilities allow company administrators to efficiently manage and track the entire learning process from a single, central point of access. LMS 365 takes the hassle out of employee training and development.
Learning is fun. By being interactive, LMS 365 makes learning engaging, entertaining and effective. Employees will retain more information than if they were memorizing facts and reading long boring chunks of text. Employees are able to see how the details presented will be relevant to their everyday work life and how what they do contributes to the company’s success.
