Your training program does more than just train employees. Sure, the point is to teach employees what they need to do their jobs, but the impact of training goes far deeper than that. After all, you don’t want employees to just do their jobs. You want them to excel. You want them to engage. You want them to succeed. Your training program is the most powerful tool you have to promote employee success.
Using Your LMS to Promote Employee Success
An employee-centered learning management system (LMS) has built-in functionality to promote employee success. Beyond delivering quality training content, an LMS allows you to establish key training benchmarks that encourage employees to continue their training.
Certify & Advance
The phrase “certify and advance” can mean different things to different people, but ultimately, in the context of training, it’s a means of promoting employee success. With LMS features allowing for certification and advancement, you increase employee engagement, learning application, and compliance.
Engagement: When it comes to training, engagement is key. Employees who are engaged with their training are more likely to retain what they’ve learned and apply it. Certification through your LMS is one way to keep employees engaged by providing personal accountability and an overall sense of accomplishment. Certifications aid in promoting employee success by providing them with a tangible goal to work towards, and something to show off once they’ve achieved that goal.
Learning Application: As employees earn certifications and advance through their training, they develop skills, knowledge, and confidence to apply what they’ve learned to their jobs. In order to promote employee success, training programs should be designed as a series of modules to build on skills previously learned. When eLearning is combined with on-the-job training as part of a blended learning program, employees can apply the skills they’ve learned and increase retention of the knowledge they’re gaining.
Compliance: Maintaining compliance is an important topic for many organizations. Your LMS likely comes with features that allow you to build training schedules to automatically assign training on a recurring basis if necessary. By automatically scheduling employees for certifications and re-certifications on compliance training topics, you can ensure your company remains compliant with the laws that govern your business. These certifications can then be printed out or stored within a document library in your LMS for easy access in case you ever need to refer to them.
