Why use an LMS for employee onboarding?
Time is money. Saving time on employee onboarding saves company money that could be used to … buy an LMS tool! Money is also saved when your new hires are ready to start their jobs faster. Onboarding is often a challenge. You have to arrange meetings, provide classrooms, hire trainers, and provide documentation. A lot of seasoned employees are required to cover these tasks. Using an LMS requires fewer of your human resources, which makes it far more cost-efficient for your company.
New hires become productive faster
Everyone will be prepared faster than if they were learning in a classroom setting
Training new personnel takes quite some time. Sometimes weeks, even months. With an LMS, less time is needed and your new hires can add value to your organization faster. They can learn in their own time and at their own pace. That means fast learners can move quickly through the training and slow learners can review the materials when they need it. This means everyone will be prepared faster than if they were learning in a classroom setting. And another plus: new employees feel more welcome.
Everything in one place
No more disorganized training materials that no one keeps track of. Upload all your training materials in one place and keep track of the results there too.
Employees receive feedback
Seeing their results on knowledge or personality tests makes new hires aware of where they can work on their weaknesses and improve their strengths.
