Looking for a Cost Effective Way to Streamline Your Employee Training Programs? | Business 2 Community

Rob Macleod, director of Aktiv Mind LMS reports, "It’s no secret that corporate training departments often lack the funding and talent needed to create effective training programs." 

As an instructional designer, I have seen budgets slashed instructional design positions given to people that had no prior experience in building a solid curriculum. Creating a successful training program is critical for any business, taking shortcuts can often result in employee frustration and diminished performance.

So what can you do to improve employee skill levels and lower your attrition rates? In one word, eLearning. Traditional classroom training is costly and often employees with little or no training experience are placed in design or facilitation roles with no real understanding of how to build and execute an effective training program.

eLearning companies provide more than just a platform to build online learning curriculum, they also provide support that can help you create an effective training program that your employees can access from anywhere.

What are the benefits of moving to an eLearning option?

Self-Paced Learning
One of the challenges of traditional training is the idea that everyone learns at the same pace. Which results in those that learn quickly checking out, and those that need more time reluctant to participate.
The result being that no one is getting what the learning experience they need to be successful. With self-paced learning modules, you can allow your current or new employee learn at their own pace, which builds confidence and increases retention.

With most of us glued to smartphones and tablets makes it an easy transition from traditional classroom to the virtual classroom. Building a learning environment that engages your learners through eLearning and chat room options for review and discussion can improve the transition from the training environment to the working environment.
