How does online corporate training improve a business?

There are enough reasons that prove why corporate training must be offered in every company. Given that businesses depend on the people that make them run every day, they need to acquire new knowledge essential for handling ubiquitous obstacles and challenges efficiently. Training allows employees to expand their skillset and learn new abilities, which improves their performance and thus boosts overall organizational productivity.

Training also makes people feel appreciated and valued, as new development opportunities gives them the chance to be better and keep learning. Education has no expiration date and every human being needs to continue acquiring new knowledge indefinitely. This process ultimately strengthens their sense of belonging and reinforces their commitment to the company.

However, training programs are costly: company leaders have to think about hiring instructors, traveling and (at times) housing expenses, as well as logistics and facilities.

Moreover, if other employees are in charge of training their peers, it generates conflict with their working schedules, hurting their productivity.

The good news is there are new solutions that allow leaders of organizations to deliver training more favorably. A great example is Cisco, which reduced its costs by 40% to 60% when it adopted online training, as it allowed:

  • 24/7 access to instructional material on multiple devices, which produces no conflict with working schedules and gives employees flexibility when planning their learning.
  • The saving of expenses related to traveling, housing and facilities.

Among other benefits, online corporate training also enables managers to monitor and choose the instructional content before employees receive it, which guarantees high quality in all the material delivered.

Teachlr Organizations

At Teachlr, we are enthusiasts of eLearning in multiple contexts, and as such we have developed an easy-to-use online school designed to deliver continuous corporate training.

We enable:

  • Simplification: Teachlr Organizations is rapidly integrated to any existing website, updates run automatically and it doesn’t require complex installations, a technical team or local infrastructure.
  • Customization: Companies build their own brand, as they receive their own URL domain, define the primary colors of the platform and issue personalized certificates.
  • Management: Leaders of organizations retain the control of the training  implementation. They invite instructors, assign employees, create groups of users, upload the instructional content and are able to store it on the cloud indefinitely. In addition, once the training content is uploaded on the platform, it can be reused, modified, updated and re-shared.
  • Monitoring: tools like analytics and reports enable leaders to keep track of employees’ performance.  The delivery of knowledge does not suffice; mechanisms that reflect the effectiveness of the training are imperative for guaranteeing future positive results.
  • Connection: Online doesn’t mean no interaction. Instructors and employees maintain a constant communication through transactional emails, private messages, notifications, announcements and discussion boards.

Teachlr Organizations is a smart investment for any organization interested in maintaining and elevating its competitiveness:

We help companies deliver personalized training to multiple employees in one single intuitive platform.
