Workforce skills and training from five years ago, though still of value, leaves an open door for your competition to take your accounts. Economic times means the battle for clients is getting even fiercer each day. How prepared are your staff members?
THE TRAINING INVESTMENT Ensuring your work team is operating at top effectiveness is no longer a desired goal; it's a necessity for survival. If your staff falls short in meeting your customers' needs, there are plenty of other companies ready to walk in the door to lure your clients away using expert staff who can deliver what they need.
You could send your key personnel away for updated training and skills upgrading, but can you really afford to have them away from your daily business? Apart from the enormous expenses to cover their training and accommodations while out of office, your support staffs are still left with quickly aging skills and talents - and expenditure to keep everyone fully trained is usually financially prohibitive.
Business continues, whether your employees are in the office or out getting more recent training. You need to find a viable solution that is both time effective and economically manageable.
E-LEARNING TO UPGRADE SKILLS E-learning and CBT (Computer Based Training) is how your competition has been gaining the edge to match, and surpass your own services. Not only is it exceptionally cost effective, it also helps ensure all your department personnel are all operating from the same operations page. You can now build a unified workforce to deliver peak performance service to your customers.
COST EFFECTIVENESS Online Training systems do provide an efficient and affordable solution by allowing you to easily structure and manage the time required by each individual to progress according to their needs and ability. Your employees can access their training sessions from their own computer, and progress through the sessions according to their own schedule and learning curve. CBT also allows the user to refresh or review specific processes and methods they've learned.
The courses allow each individual to progress at their own speed, and as your services require. However, CBT is of best value only when the online fields covered are diversified enough to cover the wide range of skills building your company may need for your daily operation. There are many general online training courses throughout the web, but you need certification or professional level instruction for business, not beginners or high school instruction.
You need: • A diverse selection of highly specialized fields of study. • Accurate, and up to date, tutorials covering specific software, programming, and IT branches. • The ability to select and allocate the specific training each department must follow. • Control and minimize unnecessary training costs by limiting which courses are actually pertinent to individual employees. • Measure the progress and success of each individuals understanding by means of self-assessments, quizzes, and hands-on practice lab simulations. • Build a tailored system set to meet your specific company needs and priority.
YOUR HOSTED LMS Building your own learning management infrastructure would require a prohibitive upfront investment in hardware, software, implementation, manpower, time constraints, security installations, and IT maintenance.
Using a Learning Management Software Hosting plan, you eliminate all those extraneous costs. You can now have a readymade tailored system to get your employees started immediately. For additional focus, you can request a custom hosting plan with branded logos and custom courseware to further enhance your online eLearning solution.
If required, your hosting plan may include the development and creation of custom designed video training for your company operations. It is one of the most powerful and economical tools for training new staff members, and can enormously cut down their crucial orientation time to begin productivity.
ADDITIONAL STAFF ENDUCEMENTS Solid LMS isn't restricted to career specific tasks only: it should include Soft Skills training programs, designed to help your executives and your management team gain the skills they need to compete, and thrive, in even stressful situations.
Soft Skills training includes valuable awareness and direction for management skills such as conflict resolution, marketing, motivation, risk and sales management, and a wide range of development tools to help build a professional staffing team.
One of the most popular business incentives is to provide access to additional training areas as a reward for great performances by your staff members. LMS Hosting provides you with that motivational edge to build the most dependable work team needed to handle all your clients' needs.
In today's competitive market, you simply can't afford not to have your best people at their optimum proficiency. LMS can help you achieve your goals.
