Key Benefits of LMS in the Office
A Learning Management System will transform the way your organization delivers information and resources to employees. Administrative processes will become more efficient, training will be centered around a unified objective, and real-time data will allow for programs to become more effective over time.
Training processes and responsibilities are commonly spread among multiple departments. HR is responsible for hiring employees and maintaining records, trainers introduce new employees to the company, as well as introduce new policies and technology to the existing workforce, and managers are often responsible for re-certifications and compliance training. This makes training difficult to maintain efficiently. An LMS centralizes learning programs from beginning to end and gives each department access to training resources from one easy-to-use platform.
Increase Retention Rates
Employees care about long-term growth and want to work for an organization that invests in their professional development. An LMS not only provides initial training, it also allows employees to be in control of their career advancement through access to certification opportunities and ongoing education. An LMS also gives millennials entering the workforce access to resources and training progress on their terms using technology innovation.
Eliminate Recurring Training Cost
Printing costs are eliminated by switching to an online platform, but this is not the only area where money will be saved by introducing an LMS into your organization. Traditional training requires a significant time investment, which could be utilized in more effective ways. Instructors traveling to different locations, for example, takes time away from building strategic training initiatives that promote long-term growth. With an LMS, the role of each person in your company will transform, reducing the time and costs associated with traditional training tools and management.
Improve Compliance and Certification Requirements
Depending on your industry, there may be a number of different compliance and certification requirements for your employees. An LMS allows certifications to be delivered through an online platform using tools like videos, simulations, and live training, but also allows for re-certifications to be delivered automatically based on regulatory requirement. Additionally, an LMS is scalable, regardless of whether there are 5 or 5,000 employees in your organization, management and administrators will have real time access to certification and compliance data for each and every employee.
