Corporate Training: 4 Benefits Of Using A Cloud-Based Learning Management System
Learning Management Systems are software applications that provide online learning content and administration tools in one place for an entire organization. Basically, you can manage the training and development of all employees in all departments from anywhere in the world without having to travel. One of the greatest features of a cloud-based Learning Management System is that a company can use these tools for continuity training at the local and corporate level. This way, all employees are subject to the same top training rather than only a few individuals. These training systems often provide tracking and reporting features so that you can monitor the progress and success of each individual and division. The information and training tools provided can be anything from video tutorials to exams.
- Increase productivity and job satisfaction.
A corporate Learning Management System has a number of benefits. You can quickly ascertain the areas in which you have people highly skilled and excelling in their roles, as well as the areas in which have people who need additional training or areas in which you need to create new positions. You can also learn where you have repetitive skill sets in the same departments to determine if downsizing is a logical step or if you can move someone to a different position that will better utilize their abilities. When you have people in the right positions based on their skills and interests, productivity will increase and they will have higher job satisfaction. This is a trickle down effect that ultimately leads to improved customer satisfaction and better sales.
- More effective options.
One of the greatest challenges with corporate training is the fact that many of the best training seminars are unattainable to all employees for a number of reasons such as cost and distance. A Learning Management System is easily accessible to everyone and can be customized for any type of training necessary from customs compliance to OSHA. Also, everyone learns differently and these training tools provide the ability to create all types of training methodologies to teach more people more effectively and improve knowledge retention. And, you can provide training to more employees more frequently with all of the money and time you save.
- Save time and money.
The biggest benefits to a cloud-based Learning Management System are the amount of time and money saved. Employees no longer have to travel across the country, or internationally, to receive the best training available. They can complete training at their own convenience from their desk, communal locations around the office, commuting to work or at home. The fact that employees no longer have to travel for training could save a larger company several hundred thousand dollars a year and smaller companies several thousand dollars. Also, because employees are not having to lose precious work time by traveling great distances, workplace happiness and productivity will increase.
- More appealing platform.
eLearning is a tool that is far more appealing to employees under 40 years old. These individuals are more accustomed to, and in favor of, online social interactions and online methodologies for learning. Another appeal to this type of corporate learning management system for this demographic is that it has very little environmental impact. By implementing these systems, you keep people in their chairs and out of the sky and cars. Being green and having a low corporate carbon footprint is also appealing to customers and can help sales.
Select The Right Training
It is important to keep in mind that a critical component of successful training is to provide the right training to the right individuals. If you train the entire company on new corporate tax laws, this would only be of value to very few employees and a waste of time and money for all others. Be sure you select the right learning tools and the right training sessions for the right people to optimize effectiveness. Some training systems and programs are better than others.
You might be surprised what you will discover through these online training tools such as new positions you may require and improved employee satisfaction. At the end of the day, the right cloud-based Learning Management System will enhance your productivity, save you money and increase sales.
