Nowadays, organizations are taking the lead to train their employees efficiently by providing access to information and training material on the go via Learning Management Systems. An LMS can provide so much more than just basic compliance and skills training to employees.
It is understood that every organization has varying business needs, to withstand the dynamic market forces, it is now imperative for organizations to ensure their employees have the required knowledge and skill sets to keep up with the growing business requirements.
Here, planning and strategy play an important role in making the most of the features that an LMS offers. Abara LMS allows you to customize features based on your business requirements to boost employee training. Having an LMS that suits the changing business needs of your organization enables you to improve your organization’s competitiveness, boost employee retention, lower attrition rate due to continuous learning environment, and offer new opportunities to employees.
In this article, we present to you some simple ways to use your LMS for business much beyond skill and compliance training, by fine-tuning it as per your organization’s objectives and goals.
Automate Your Learner’s Journey
An LMS proves to be of great advantage to both, trainers and learners. To learners, an LMS offers them a simple and effective way to improve their knowledge and develop the required skills. Through an LMS, trainers can efficiently distribute training material to employees across the organization, irrespective of their location. Automating a learner’s journey is crucial to ensure there are no gaps in your LMS automation. These gaps could be any task such as manual check or review of data/information, sending out reminder emails, etc. A good automation synchronizes all activities of a learner’s journey and ensures employees are acquiring new skills and latest knowledge about compliance.
Automation also saves the time of trainers which they can invest in researching about new technology and training topics.
Fill Skill Gaps
An LMS can be useful in filling the skill gaps that standard work-based training and compliance training modules do not cover. Here, providing training to employees on developing soft skills such as communication, interpersonal skills, integrity, flexibility, work ethics, responsibility, etc. can be done. Likewise, employees can be trained on select advanced features of a software that might not be the need of the hour but to help them develop better understanding of the new features in the software.
Hence, an LMS can help you deepen the knowledge of your employees apart from their regular work.
Growth of Young Talent
Losing young employees has become a common norm in organizations today. This could be because of the perception among employees that they do not have any scope to grow within the company or that there is nothing left to learn. Often, lack of growth opportunities and a company’s inability to provide clarity on next steps are major reasons that drive young talent away from organizations.
An LMS enables you to keep these talented young professionals engaged via interactive training modules that they can opt for and undergo training at their own pace.
Smooth Onboarding Process
Lengthy and complicated onboarding processes often lead to discomfort among new hires and at times, also discourages them to continue in the organization. Hence, onboarding is one of the most crucial processes in the organization. An LMS will help you do this smoothly.
Preparing a checklist of the must-have skills for new hires and providing them with training at the beginning can build confidence in them and help with on-the-job learning quickly. These training programs could be job/role specific, department specific, or even skill specific that can be delivered to new hires in an efficient manner through an LMS. Try to include crucial information that only a handful of employees know, but is essential for new hires as well. This will boost their confidence at work and also improve productivity over time, thereby building trust in the organization.
