Today, businesses allow for more flexibility in the geographic operating locations of their employees, resulting in a dispersed workforce. This poses a major threat for information communication. How do you ensure that information will be clearly and accurately communicated to all members of your organization? The solution is simple: through elearning.
1. Expense Saving
Generally, training is conducted in a head office training room or conference centre situated near headquarters. The cost of this infrastructure, rent and/or lease is an immediate cost burden for any company. Through eLearning, you minimize the travel and lodging costs for these sessions. No longer does training have to be classified as a significant expenditure on your books. A one-time fee to develop the training module is all that would be incurred.
2. Breaking the Communication Barriers
A large-scale, international company is hosting a training session for major sales leaders across the globe. Does the facilitator speak the native tongue of the head office? Are translators brought in? Through eLearning, employees are able to receive information in their respective languages, ensuring a seamless spread of information to all.
3. Employee Convenience
Nothing motivates an employee more than autonomy and trust. The power to work remotely and still receive information electronically allows for employees to learn at their own convenience. Libraries, cottages, backyards, or even beaches; eLearning allows for remote learning, at any time.
4. Pace of Knowledge
Have you ever sat in a meeting, lecture or seminar and accidentally missed a crucial part of the message? It can be extremely inconvenient to repeat information in a fixed, time-tight agenda. eLearning allows employees to learn at their own pace. Revert back to the previous slide at any time, perform the module twice, take your time and read the material carefully. eLearning encourages thorough learning, not racing to the end.
Overall, eLearning provides several benefits and advantages to both companies and employees. The digital age is here – what are you waiting for?
