Boosting Onboarding With A Learning Experience Platform

Do you remember your first day of school? I’m sure most of you do. If so, then you must be able to recall how frustrated and nervous you were. You didn't know where to sit, how to stand, what you would do all day, when to dig in your lunchbox, how to talk and behave, who your classmates were and how to approach them, etc. You most probably felt like you were sticking out like a tart in a nunnery. Unless, you were one of those very lucky kids whose parents had prepared them for this day by explaining thoroughly what to expect, what to do, and who to go to for help.

The first day of a new job is exactly like this. But when you were young, you didn’t have the anxiety of making a good impression. As an adult, you know that the first impression is what sticks with your coworkers and your boss. Double the nervousness, then. Your past experiences from another workplace might come in handy for making it through your first day, but are they enough? Who’s going to take on the role of the parents who have explained to you what to expect? The answer lies within onboarding.

Power Employee Onboarding Using A Learning Experience Platform (LXP)
Bringing the onboarding process into the 21st century with AI-driven LXP technology.

A successful onboarding process can ensure a smooth transition into a new working environment. If you are well prepared for your job tasks, your managers, coworkers, and even the facilities you will be using, then you will feel more confident and relaxed. Being prepared will help you make a good first impression, avoid common pitfalls, and help you make a smooth transition onto the team

As onboarding can be one of the biggest challenges an organization might be facing nowadays, we need to know how we can implement it successfully. On the one hand, it must be fast and effective, but on the other hand, the volume of information new hires need to digest is continuously increasing. It is no use bombarding people with all we need them to know, hoping they will manage. They won’t. So, how can we do the impossible and keep employees up-to-date without breaking them down? Learning Pool has the solution at hand! Since onboarding is a learning experience, a Learning Experience Platform (LXP) is the best way to go.

Facilitating The Onboarding Process For Your Employees

So, how can you facilitate the onboarding process and make sure your employees can process all this new information without underperforming and avoiding faulty work methodologies? In this eBook, Power Employee Onboarding Using A Learning Experience Platform (LXP), the experts at Learning Pool bring the onboarding process into the 21st century with AI-driven LXP technology. You can find useful insights into the new generation of learning platforms and how they can assist with onboarding new hires. This guide examines the onboarding process from A-Z, why it matters so much, and how to properly use an LXP to power up the onboarding experience for your employees to achieve maximum performance results. More specifically, this eBook provides resources on the following topics:

  • The Challenge Of Onboarding
  • Toward A Modern Onboarding Process
  • Using An LXP To Power The Onboarding Process

Even if LXPs are a relatively new arrival in learning systems, they bear some characteristics worth taking advantage of. For instance, some of the most significant features they come with are:

  • Consumer-grade interface and experience
  • Advanced search
  • Personalization
  • Mobile-friendly
  • Any content
  • Curation
  • Social features incl. User-Generated Content
  • Skills framework
  • Badging, assessment, certification
  • Advanced analytics

In this very insightful eBook, you will get the chance to further analyze them and discover all of the fruitful benefits they can offer to your organization. It is essential to note, however, that LXPs do not focus on administration, but rather on the experience of learning, so they assist by making it more attractive and much easier. Thus, self-onboarding is promoted, and employees get the chance to pinpoint their own onboarding needs and progress based on their level of onboarding and previous experiences. Personalized learning in its best form!

Discovering The Advantages Of An LXP

Hence, the benefits of using an LXP for employee onboarding are many. A Learning Experience Platform helps to tackle the most common challenges of onboarding. It offers targeted learning by placing new hires at the center of learning, allowing new hires to direct their own training based on past experiences. Employee engagement—one of the most common fears of employers—is therefore maximized. An LXP also offers instant access to new employees, easing the stress that may happen at any given moment. Also, a reward system is provided so motivation is constantly being boosted as achievement can be acknowledged and rewarded with badges through the Learning Experience Platform.

An LXP can offer countless advantages when it comes to enlightening your employees concerning your organization’s culture. Getting your employees closer to understanding your culture, you grow the possibilities of their long-term engagement. Collaboration and social interaction are being enhanced, and the learning experience stops being a path of isolation for your new hires.

Conclusion

Overall, investing in an LXP is the best way to level up the onboarding process of your organization. Give a helping hand to your employees, prepare them for what they will be facing—just like thoughtful parents do with their kids before the first day of school—and get to nurture valuable members in your business family. You won’t be disappointed but, most importantly, you will not be left in the dark to wonder. The eBook Power Employee Onboarding Using A Learning Experience Platform (LXP) by Learning Pool will be your guide on your journey to create successful onboarding using an LXP.
