Putting your Training online Saves Time


Save Time
Remember that study that found that companies spent, on average, $1,407 training each employee? That same study found that those employees were spending an average of 40 hours in training.

That’s an entire week of lost productivity. What company can afford a lot of that? Fortunately, online training helps mitigate this problem.

The just in time nature of Online Training means employees can take their classes during “down time” at work  when it is most convenient for everyone. They can still perform vital functions and interact with customers and accounts, while improving their skills and knowledge.

It’s the best of both worlds.

Additionally, by its very nature, online courses cut down on training time, their duration is usually less than comparable classroom courses on the same subject by 25 to 60 percent.

There’s no commuting, no waiting for material handouts, no presentation difficulties.

Basically, there is nothing to get in the way of the training and therefore the training is as streamlined and efficient as it can be.

This minimises the impact of training, not only on a specific employee taking the course, but also on those employees who have to fill in for coworkers in training.

Ultimately, this leads to better productivity in the workplace because employees can train while still keeping up with their work.

When they finish their training, they can also put new skills and ideas to work right away, which is also a boon to productivity as well as a time-saver.
