Your company’s processes and technologies will inevitably evolve, and your employees will need to evolve with them. Continuing training and learning are required whenever new software and tools are added, as well as making sure employees stay up to date on any new regulations and required professional or safety training. But beyond training for their current jobs, employees also want the opportunity for career development. If your employees don’t see an opportunity to grow, they may look elsewhere. According to Work Institute, lack of career development is the number one reason employees quit their jobs. A good learning management software system can solve the issue of ongoing training and career development.
What is Learning Management?
Learning and development is a specialized function of your HR department. According to HR Technologist, it is defined as the process of empowering employees with specific skill sets to drive better business performance. These skills may improve an employee’s performance in their current role or set them up for a new position, possibly promoting them to a future leadership or management role. Coaching, mentoring, webinars, conferences, job shadowing and online training courses are all types of development learning.
Why You Need Learning Management
Learning and development company programs offer several benefits. First, they make your employee happy. As mentioned above, the top reason employees quit jobs is due to lack of career growth. But beyond career growth, when you dedicate resources to your employees and develop formal training, it makes them feel valued as individuals and as employees. Valued employees will be loyal to your company because they will feel you’ve invested in them, even when other opportunities present themselves.
As learning and development programs help reduce turnover costs, you can focus on your company’s long term goals instead of continually working to hire new talent. Your employees will stay longer because they’ll be invested in your company and will want to contribute to its success. Your company also benefits when you develop your current employees to lead your company in the future.
A strategic use of a robust Learning Management System (LMS) simplifies learning and development. A good LMS will:
- Kickstart your employees’ career development track
- Extend your onboarding, which increases engagement
- Increase your retention rate
- Improve employee morale
- Create a smarter, more efficient workforce
- Help you and your employees adhere to safety guidelines and requirements
