12 Lucrative Advantages of eLearning Solutions for Your Company
If your company has been considering employing online training and development solutions, it is doing some intelligent planning. Here are 12 advantages eLearning solutions offer every company that gives them a try:
1. Fewer indirect costs
Think of how much money your company can save if it does not have to pay for transportation and accommodation fees for the employees attending training.
2. Opportunity to train many employees at once
Online training courses allow you to hold mass trainings in a very efficient way.
3. No traveling or commuting required
Your employees won’t have to take time out of their work schedules to travel or commute for training reasons since they are able to take the course sitting at their desks.
4. Active participation
Your employees are active participants of the training, since they will be able to assess and correct themselves, creating in them a sense of personal responsibility and independence towards future training.
5. Transfer of corporate knowledge and experience
Online training encourages learners to be active acquirers and appliers of knowledge and experience specific to their company.
Elearning gives a lot of flexibility to a company, since it can be tailored to fit within the company’s time and space availability. If your employees are scattered around a large geographic area, online training courses allow them to be coached from wherever they are without the need to travel.
7. Recognition for initiative and innovation
When you offer your employees the chance to take regular online courses to improve their skills, you are winning their loyalty and trust. You are drawing new and better candidates to the company while you show everyone the spirit of initiative and innovation that your company possesses.
If you wish to improve your innovation capacity, you can easily do it through eLearning, by developing new abilities derived from the professional potential of each employee and adapting them to the company’s corporate development objectives.
8. Promotion of corporate culture
To make team integration smoother, you can train new employees on your corporate culture very efficiently during their induction process.
9. Tailored training
Online training and development solutions let you tailor the courses to fit the needs of individual employees, allowing them to develop a particular skill.
10. Development of professional cooperation
When your employees are located in remote areas, working together remotely gives them the opportunity to create groups to talk about different topics and share professional expertise.
11. Course customization to adapt to learner availability
When taking an online course, your employees can take several days to complete it, and long distance learners can take it from their desks without altering their work schedules.
