How do you approach training in your business? Is it a ‘nice to have’, for when you and your employees have the time? Is it just one of those things that falls off your to-do list when things inevitably become too busy and it’s all-hands-on-deck time?
Perhaps you dread the idea of arranging training, because it means losing days of resource while team members attend in-person courses.
Whatever your thoughts on employee training, there’s no denying it’s absolutely essential. From training to meet your compliance obligations, to refreshing your people’s skills and knowledge – a good training programme can help you hang on to the really great people in your business and attract new ones too.
What if we told you that there was a way to meet your legal training obligations as an employer, while also filling knowledge and skills gaps, increasing employee engagement and boosting your bottom line? All wrapped up in one easy-to-access, on-demand solution.
That solution lies in the power of elearning.
The benefits of elearning
The role of workplace learning is changing, and elearning for small businesses is fast becoming one of the go-to resources for smart businesses who, while they may be time-poor, know they need to both meet their legal obligations around training, while also investing in their people to keep them developed and engaged.
So, what’s the big deal about elearning? Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of implementing an elearning platform in your business.
With an elearning solution integrated into your business, you can offer essential training to people, that they can complete from the comfort of their own desk. Plus, you have a record of exactly who has completed which modules and when they’re due for a refresher. Perfect for your audit trail.
The world moves fast and isn’t slowing down. If your employees get left behind when it comes to training, your business risks losing out on essential skills. With elearning, you have a technological edge. An always-on platform helps you fit in core training modules, and skill development, whenever your business needs demand.
If losing resource for chunks at a time for training has been a problem for you, elearning provides a much less intrusive process on your core time. All your people need is a PC, laptop or mobile device and an internet connection and they can complete their training modules wherever and whenever they see fit – from a break in the workday to the commute home!
Your employees want to know that you’re invested in their career goals, as much as you want to know they’re invested in your business. Offering an elearning package is the perfect way to demonstrate your commitment to high standards and the continuing development of those who work for you.
