In my previous blog we identified the top five types of training that organizations are delivering through eLearning and have talked about Compliance training and Induction training. Here let us see the remaining three trainings and how eLearning is a beneficial option for their delivery.
Trainings on workplace hazards and best safety practices can help learners to avoid workplace accidents and quickly respond, if faced with a dangerous situation, thereby ensuring safety for themselves and the organization.
Like compliance training, Safety training is mandatory. There might be a requirement that it should be delivered annually. Moreover, for globally operating firms, delivering the training at each and every location, through classroom multiplies their budget.
With E-learning in place, many of the global firms are reaping the benefits. E-learning once designed, can be delivered at multiple locations and multiple times. Training completion reports generated by LMS are accepted by the regulatory authorities.
To gain and continue to retain a competitive advantage, in today’s fiercely competitive business landscape; organizations ensure that sales people have the relevant skills, to stay ahead on the cutting edge.
Training global sales people is challenging, but to remain competitive, companies need to continually train sales people on feature/ benefits of the product, selling skills and techniques. Moreover, with a wide array of products that sales people handle they need to learn not only about the products, but also about target markets and competitor products. Annual or biannual classroom training is not sufficient to reinforce the key aspects required for selling.
Organizations recognized eLearning as the most economical way to distribute standard and consistent training, to the entire sales force enterprise wide. For example, when a new product is launched globally and the huge sales force needs to be trained about its features, it involves a lot of logistical planning to organize physical training programs. However, eLearning doesn’t involve these kinds of logistical problems. It can be organized to ensure global, multicultural reach, with a consistent message to all the relevant employees.
Software training essentially involves everything from utilizing built-in functionality, to personalized layouts and menus, adapted to the employee’s roles and responsibilities in an organization. Employees belonging to different departments, utilize software functionality in different ways, to accomplish their tasks.
ELearning courses with simulations are the method adopted by organizations to train learners to use Software Applications. Online Training for software training has become a norm with many organizations.
These are the top 5 trainings being delivered through an online learning in major Organizations. Have something to say! Please do share.
