How to train employees using online training

Richard Branson said it best, “Train people well enough so they can leave, treat them well enough so they don’t want to.” Training employees is not a waste of money or resources. Having well trained employees is a crucial asset for any organization.

However we know that training employees can create a lot of headaches for businesses. Without the right tools, training can be difficult to coordinate and cost more money than many small to midsize organizations can easily afford. e-Learning and the use of a learning management system have proven to be excellent training tools that not only support training of managers but also support training of employees at all levels. We have assembled free training resources to help you get started or improve your current employee training programs. Here are a few articles which should help: Exploring How to Train Employees in a Flexible Workplace, How to Train Employees: Smart Approaches to Training Employees, How You Can Use Customer Insight to Improve Employee Training, Bridging the Gap: How to Train Remote Employees. Before getting started with your employee training, perhaps conducting a training needs analysis (TNA) is the first step to take. Here are 6 Steps to Conducting a Thorough Training Needs Analysis.

How to train employees using online training

eLeaP is an online training software system that eliminates many of the problems associated with arranging training courses for employees. Employee training can become a means of altering employee behavior – not in a punitive way, but so that gaps in organizational performance can be closed. Sometimes organizations are ‘forced’ or gently coerced to performing training due to the findings of an audit, financial requirements or for professional certification reasons. On occasion, findings require corrective action and if that affects a relatively large number of employees, training is often the solution to meeting the requirements. The challenge is finding a fast, simple and cost-effective way to rollout a training program. 

CREATE YOUR OWN COURSES

When thinking how to train employees, the best way imaginable would be to have course content that entirely matches your company’s requirements. With eLeaP, this is easily achievable. eLeaP enables you to create your own courses from scratch using you own files, including PDFs, Microsoft Office files, and photo, audio and video files. If you’re rushed and don’t have time to create your own courses, send us your files, and we’ll create the course for you!

Don’t tolerate training frustration any longer. Do any of these complaints sound familiar: 

“I am sick and tired of expensive and complicated learning and training management systems”

“Why can’t they just build a simple system that anyone can use without having to go for a degree in computer science”

“The last company handed us a contract so complex and long we hired a law firm just to decipher what exactly they were offering us.”

“I don’t want to deal with another maintenance contract or long term commitment I can’t get out of”

“ooh don’t get me started. They did not offer any free trial. Yet they wanted me to drop several thousand dollars without test driving the system… do I look crazy to you”

“Well the truth is my training budget is shrinking, the boss wants me to do more with less. We can not afford an expensive system … but we need a system that works. You know .. easy to use and works, just works”

“IT says we should not install anything on the network. Oh yea and none of those complicated software programs either.. what am I supposed to do?”

“Look I want a learning and training management system that does the job well. I don’t want a system that tries to do everything and ends up not doing anything well. Know what I mean?”

“Our company has a high threshold when it comes to security of our information. We don’t want anything ending on the wrong places. Security is paramount. We can’t afford any breaches or down time”

“I need to train folks in Japan, Germany and US. Please tell me there is a way to do that .. without having to fly to all these places…Is your learning management solution affordable?”

By contrast, check out some of the feedback our satisfied customers have given us:

“I found the eLeaP Training/Learning System very easy to use, from entering and formatting the information, setting up users and entering the test questions. I am very pleased with the company itself – The staff walked me through it, responded quickly to any questions I had, was very professional – made it a very pleasant experience. I would recommend eLeaP to anyone looking for this type of software.”

Toni Garrard, Training Consultant, Listrom & Associates, LLC.

“Thanks so much for your help. I appreciate all the assistance you and eLeap have given to KPS. It has been great working with eLeap to set up our on-line training program. We have company associates and contractors all over the US who will be able to take advantage of our new training capabilities. Prior to this we had to bring trainees into our head office disrupting their work schedules and incurring significant costs. Now we can deliver important course material to them 24/7 without paying a cent for travel costs. They can take our courses at their home offices or while working on the road. With this new found capability, we can expand our coursework because it is so simple to set up and administer. We look forward to greater company performance because of the eLeaP training platform.”
