For decades, decentralized companies have had to cope with training challenges that included lack of standardization, inconsistency, and facilitation challenges. An absence of centralized record-keeping has also negatively impacted their efforts.

We’ve seen how modern LMS’s have addressed the latter issue and, today, e-Learning is effectively solving the other challenges.

One such multi-national company has commented publicly about the positive impacts made on their organization by a corporate-installed LMS and, most importantly, by the movement toward e-Learning.

“At first, we had no full-blown training program which anyone and everyone could utilize. However, with e-Learning we have found a training answer that is not only cost-effective for use at multiple plant locations, but also has received favorable responses from the employees. Everyone’s happy today: upper management, the supervisors, the trainers, and our workforce.”

Well-designed e-Learning programs are the greatest value in training today. The investment is comparatively modest and the retention results are excellent.

With traditional classroom training, the more you use it, the more it costs. With e-Learning, employees really do spend more time on the job and less time training. That’s because e-Learning allows each worker to proceed at their own pace — rather than being slowed down within a classroom setting. The interactivity allows the worker to repeat, review, and retain much more of the information than was ever possible in a traditional “lecture/reading” environment.

As one company representative has said, “If we want to help our employees work smarter, we’ve got to give them the tools to do the best job possible. We can do that with e-Learning!”

Enjoy your holiday weekend. More on Tuesday – – – – –
