More and more companies are converting their training to digitalized form, and this is because digitalized training is cost-effective, makes day-to-day time management more flexible and also generates reports about the accomplishments.

Digitalized learning is a new concept to many of us and thus raises questions. What kind of training should one convert to digitalized form in order to create maximum levels of business benefits? Which are the training that should be made digital – and furthermore, where to start from?

Making repeated training more efficient

Onboarding is often the company’s first digitalized training, as it is important to execute it in a standardized way for all the new employees. Digitalized onboarding is a way to offer each and every employee a standard and equal introduction to the company’s processes. It also saves time for the management. And this means that both the time and the resources are available for other things.  One can also save lots of time and resources in digitalizing other frequently repeated training and/or training that are targeted to a wider audience, such as:

  • onboarding
  • training related to products and services
  • training related to new technologies and the ways of working

Verifying of know-how

Accomplishing digitalized training leaves a trace, and the analytics produced can be used in reporting the participation and achievements of training. With these reports it’s easy to analyze the levels of participation and know-how performance within each domain, e.g.:

  • information security training
  • safety training

Implementing the strategy and the values

Digitalized learning enables cost-effective training even for a large group of participants. It’s affordable and easy to arrange training for the whole personnel via an online learning platform. The participants can be located in all parts of the World and can even be in different time zones and are still able to take part in the training.

Managing employees is demanding and requires versatile personal development. At the same time, the schedules of the management are stuffed and the scheduling of the training is quite a handful. Digitalized training enables flexible scheduling, as constant development of one’s managerial skills without having to spend a whole day the training becomes possible.
