It’s the time of year for giving, and here at LEO Learning we know that there’s no better gift you can give your staff than the gift of elearning. Not only can it help them feel more valued and happier at work, but it can help you to overcome your bigger business challenges too. Let’s take a look at just a few of the benefits.
The gift of elearning: Staff engagement and retention
In today’s business world, a high staff turnover rate has almost become accepted as just the way things are, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Giving your employees the right training could be the answer to retaining them for longer, and is a better investment than recruiting a constantly changing workforce.
Our recent work on the millennial generation highlighted this point in particular. The millennial generation currently make up half of company employees, but the majority only stay in a job for three years at a time. In a recent study of millennials at work, 23% said that personal and career development was an important factor to them in their jobs. For a generation that will make up 75% of our workforce by 2025, it’s an important point.
If employees feel their skills and development are being truly invested in by their employer, they’ll feel valued and be more inclined to stay. With staff maximising their potential and improving their knowledge in a range of areas, they’ll also be more equipped to advance within your organisation when opportunities arise.
The gift of elearning: Skills for life
Elearning provides users with skills for life that they can apply not only to their job roles but outside of the workplace too. It can help them to understand their own learning patterns, discover their strengths and feel more fulfilled. All fantastic things to bring back to the workplace.
The gift of elearning: Staff agility
Creating a more agile workforce is proving to be of increasing importance in a constantly evolving business world. Online elearning platforms contribute towards flexibility by training employees on a wide range of topics, making it easier and more comfortable for them to adapt to other changes within the organisation when necessary.
The gift of elearning: Customer satisfaction
Happier staff means happier customers, and vice versa. Enabling staff to upskill on areas like customer service and product knowledge will have a direct reflection on the consumer experience, increasing the number of satisfied and returning customers.
At LEO Learning, we design programmes that can benefit everyone in your organisation. If you’d like to find out how we could help you to offer your staff the gift of elearning this holiday season, get in touch today.
