The HR landscape can be very complex and challenging to navigate. Often, you'll have lots of different software to keep track of that deal with everything from recruiting to payroll. This can quickly become a headache.
That's where integrations come in to play. Integrations allow you to connect all the software. That lets you keep track of everything in one place and alleviates a lot of stress. One of these crucial integrations is your integrated learning management system. That way, you can efficiently train employees and keep track of their learning without adding even more complicated software.
Here are three massive advantages of integrated learning systems.
1. Improved Learning Experience
Learning in a modern workplace can be a very different experience now than it was even a decade ago. An LMS allows you to personalize your training in ways not imaginable before. A good LMS has interactive content and video, allows for feedback, and allows employees to learn at their rate. These are all critical necessities of active learning.
Combine this with the ability to quickly and easily update your training means that you can have some of the most skilled employees possible.
And of course, better learning means better performance, which is your ultimate goal.
2. Higher ROI for Training
There are several ways in which workplace integrated learning systems help your bottom line. The automated training means you need fewer instructors, which lowers your overhead. And since employees can learn at their own rate and when it's most convenient, they can be as productive as possible. They won't need to cancel a meeting or delay a project to attend a training session. And since they typically receive better training with an LMS, they often perform higher after the training as well.
But perhaps the most significant way an LMS increases your training ROI is its automation, meaning less time organizing the training, and more time learning and working. All that can lead to significant cost savings.
3. Better Analytics for Better Decisions
Workplace integrated learning systems give you much better analytics than older training methods. First and foremost, the data is more accurate. Since all your training data is in one place, you won't need to worry about the redundant data that often slows down your decisions.
Furthermore, you get more detailed analytics. All your training data in one place means you can see everyone's complete training history. This means you can better identify trends and make your training even more useful. You can also identify trends with individual performance. This means you can identify top talent and take advantage of them. You get a more holistic view of every employee's skill set and can better structure them.
Finally, you can turn this data into actionable goals. For instance, if you notice that the employee retention rate is low, you can combine this knowledge with your LMS data to provide better and more engaging training.
