Employee training and professional development opportunities have become increasingly important in recent years. In fact, learning opportunities were identified as the top engagement initiative that employees would like to see from their employers in isolved’s HR Trends study.
When addressing employee development with your clients, here are five key benefits of a learning management system (LMS) that are worth highlighting:
1. Greater Security
Discuss how your clients currently store and deliver training tools and materials to determine whether their data is at risk. Is everything stored on different devices or hard drives? Or worse, on paper and spreadsheets? With an LMS in place, your clients can manage all learning content in one location in the cloud to enable secure retention of data as well as online collaborative learning.
2. Anytime, Anywhere Access
Do your clients’ employees need to be on-site to access resources? Access without limitation enables everyone to work through their training materials both on-site and on the go, at any time, and from any place. An LMS can help your clients revisit training resources and work through them at their own pace to master skills and tasks.
3. Improved Progress Tracking
Do your clients have good visibility into how employees are tracking and performing on assigned trainings? An LMS can track progress and performance and provide analytical data to help strengthen the process and resolve any weak spots. If an employee is struggling, supplemental resources can be provided for assistance.
4. Reduce Time and Expense
Reducing the amount of time it takes to administer and complete required training or professional development can help your clients save valuable time and money. Not all tasks require the same blanket training, and with an LMS, your clients’ employees can quickly absorb the material they need online and skip the lengthy boardroom or classroom setting altogether.
5. Ensure Compliance
Regulatory training requirements are constantly changing and remaining up to date and compliant is essential. Updating courses takes a lot of time and can be an arduous process, but an LMS constantly updates to reflect current compliance standards so that your clients can avoid penalties.
A Yearning for Learning
With isolved’s data showing that employees expect learning and development opportunities from their employers, it is critical that you equip your clients with the technology needed to meet those expectations. A comprehensive LMS can do just that.
