Decentralised, remote workforces are an ongoing reality for organisations and will likely continue to be the norm in the future. Online training solutions are essential for the training and onboarding of employees, so L&D teams need to adjust their strategies, if they haven’t already, to deliver seamless and effective training.
This phase of employee development is one of the most challenging. New employees need to be immediately exposed to the company culture, and this has become particularly important with remote workforces. The importance of effective onboarding cannot be minimised. It is essential for good handovers and to maintain a consistent corporate culture.
The best way to effectively onboard new employees is through an easy-to-use Learner Management System such as FUEL Learn. Our LMS has been developed to ensure that all users are constantly engaged in a dynamic, cost-effective manner and are continually assessed against their roles and given the required training at the appropriate time in line with their learning pathways. Our LMS is customised to an organisation’s corporate identity and enables management to administer users and track learners’ progress.
Effective change management is vital to the success of online training implementation. With remote working, large businesses that are looking to revise their employee development strategy need to adjust their previous approach to integrate effective online training. Traditional L&D teams and business cultures need to learn new methodologies, requiring diligence and guidance from a trusted online training service provider.
Integrating online training into business cultures set in traditional training patterns can present a challenge. All training content needs to be revised to suit the new strategy and online training methodology. Fortunately, all existing legacy content can be converted to suit online delivery methodologies. Expert online training service providers such as FUEL, ensure all existing content is revised and utilised so no skills knowledge is lost during the implementation phase. FUEL excels at successfully converting existing training content into engaging, online training modules for maximum return on investment.
FUEL offers end-to-end production services, from script to screen, and our range of production packages can meet any budget.
To ensure the success of your new online training platform, support is vital. L&D teams are the first area of support, encouraging employees to engage with the online training and to explain its value. Employees are eager to engage with training content once they realise the value is what is offered. Without proper support from the Learning and Development team, an LMS platform can fail before it can fully integrate into the work culture.
In addition, FUEL’s Customer Support department make sure users are supported in their training quickly and efficiently, and service levels are met and exceeded. Our in-house call centre makes regular inbound and outbound calls to all training sites to provide general information and training. Our operators take great pride in the role they play in educating our thousands of users.
An organisation’s L&D team is a strong influencer when it comes to ensuring employee engagement with training. Making your LMS the go-to platform when any sort of training or workplace assistance is required will contribute to its success. The LMS needs to be treated as only one part of a whole – it cannot stand alone as an island where occasional training is done. Employees need to think of it as their main resource when they need assistance with tasks.
There are plenty of opportunities and challenges facing businesses that are looking at revising their employee development strategy. Working with a trusted company such as FUEL ensures the successful implementation of your digital training academy.
