Organizations have recognized training as a tool essential for ensuring that their employees’ skills remain relevant in this fast-paced world. Increasingly, online training courses have emerged as employers’ preferred choice for an effective training solution with a whole range of benefits.
We examine the top six reasons why organizations should start adopting online training courses into their training plans.
Amazing flexibility and convenience
With online training, employees get to determine their own learning speed. As learning speeds differ among individuals, those who take more time to learn can learn comfortably without slowing others down.
Whether employees are looking to refresh the points they have learnt or if they need more time to understand more complex points, they can go through selected sections or the entire course multiple times to maximise absorption.
Employees can work the training schedule around their own workload. If they prefer, they can even go through the course at home. This eliminates the need to coordinate timetables, especially when the numbers to be trained are very large.
Not only can existing users go through the content as many times as they want, the courses can also be kept to train other employees in the future.
This increases your return on investment significantly!
Value for money
According to Training Magazine, corporations save between 50-70% when they opt for online training due to elimination of travel expenses.
Online training courses competently deliver the goals of training without busting your company’s training budget. When employees have to travel to external training locations, the hours spent away from work do not only mean additional costs in transportation but also decreased efficiency and possibly, lost opportunities. The lack of the need for an instructor also keeps costs low.
Another benefit from customization is that even after localization, the messages in the localized versions remain consistent across the board. Without the human touch of an instructor, content is delivered as it is without any bias. Having an instructor may mean content getting left out or interpreted differently.
Accessibility at a click
With online training courses, all you need is a computer and internet access to embark on skills-enhancing courses.
For organizations that have employees located in different global offices, and want to implement a universal training course for all, online training courses present the ideal solution.
Even at remote places where internet access is non-existent, employees can still learn from elearning courses in the form of CD-Roms.
The accessibility of online training courses is also a plus when organizations want to implement training within a short time frame. These courses have been produced with content, design, interactivity and quizzes all seamlessly integrated. Once a purchase has been made, they are good to go!
