E-learning and LMSs for employee onboarding
Onboarding is a significant and challenging task
Every new employee, no matter how senior, needs to quickly learn specific information about their role, the company, its processes, its values and culture, their co-workers, health and safety…the list can seem endless, and the number of forms can be enormous.
Nonetheless, onboarding is essential because it’s the first real opportunity that every new hire needs to take after joining the business. Having a powerful learning management system (LMS) can play a vital role in managing, delivering, and measuring your onboarding processes.
Not only can the right LMS streamline the onboarding experience, but it will also improve results, encourage engagement, and save a considerable amount of stress for both the training team and new employees.
Your LMS is a powerful bit of software that enables you to create, deliver and track your employee’s digital learning
Onboard people successfully to your organisation
Your LMS enables more of your new joiners to become productive in less time, saving you money and increasing the quality of their initial work. This provides a powerful base for future performance improvements and higher employee retention
Scale and automate operations
