eLearning has a plethora of effects on businesses, particularly when it comes to the behaviour of employees. It is the next big thing when it comes to the success and progression of your business.
Businesses are entirely driven by internal and external factors, all having a major effect on the action and purpose of the company itself.
We have rounded up five ways eLearning impacts businesses on a day-to-day basis.
1. Empowered employees
When eLearning is implemented into employee training strategy, employees feel empowered as they feel expectations of their needs and preferences have been met. Learners may be intrinsically or extrinsically motivated, determined by internal or external factors the company is exposed to. Empowering employees is crucial for the significant boost in performance, contributing to overall success of the company.
2. Training costs are reduced
Costs spent on training can sometimes detract employers from wanting to invest in training strategy. Microlearning is your immediate solution whereby the only costs are original onboarding and rare maintenance costs. Training material is digitally delivered to employees’ own devices, proving both employees and employers convenience at their fingertips (literally). Being able to complete training out of work hours means that precious time at work does not have to be set aside for training, providing the company with a more productive workforce and a cheaper one at that.
3. Competitive advantage
Training can be easily differentiated from other methods through the implementation of eLearning. Company training has never been easier, facilitating the seamless transition of knowledge from courses to the long-term memory of learners. Employees are more informed of company product and processes, as well as basic skills needed for a successful company.
4. Knowledgable corporate environment
When employees are effectively trained, the corporate environment is immediately more informed and knowledgable. This immediately ups the ante on the quality of executed actions. A major benefit of eLearning is its ability to be easily chopped and changed, before being automatically and instantaneously cloud-dropped to employees, meaning they can immediately learn newly released information.
5. Learning is customisable to suit the business, not the other way around
eLearning means that employees can progress through their training courses wherever and whenever suits them. Learning can custom designed to fit in with the needs of employees, whether this is when they would like to complete their training or the type of content. With EdApp, employers can decide the course content, the design, as well as prerequisite courses or deadlines for courses to be completed.
