Increasing Employee Engagement Through e-Learning

e-Learning tools, when utilized correctly, allow organizations to present document conversion and training and development opportunities that are engaging, interactive, and fun for employees.

The battle for engagement

It is no secret that many organizations struggle to engage and motivate their employees. However, research shows that organizations that take an interest in their employees’ growth and development remain poised for success. From reducing employee turnover to increasing productivity levels, organizations that strive to engage their employees can reap the results of a dedicated workforce.

No surprise then, that employee engagement is the new catchphrase for enterprises interested in retaining existing talent and attracting new hires. But working to engage employees and extend the employee lifecycle is easier said than done. According to Gallup, organizational leaders must aim to provide proper training, tools, and resources to help employees upskill and advance in their careers – while keeping them engaged and motivated.

e-Learning is key

The global media company, Forbes, believes that e-learning is key to promoting employee growth and development. In fact, research shows that the global e-learning market is expected to grow by $38 billion by 2024. Certainly, a good reason to embrace e-learning as your choice for employee training and development! Promising robust content and an individual learning experience, all wrapped up in the latest technologies, e-learning is fast proving itself to be the leading choice for organizations that are seeking to up their training and development offerings.

A seamless transition

Yet, even though the e-learning industry is so well-established, many organizations are reluctant to make the leap and turn to e-learning as a way to disseminate information to employees. It is up to e-learning companies to step in and make the transition seamless. Understanding their customers, they know that one of the most common requests is for existing documentation and training – from standard operating procedures (SOPs) wrapped up in tidy PowerPoint presentations to employee rules and regulations tidily packaged into a PDF – to be converted quickly and effectively into engaging e-learning courses.

E-learning for Organizations of Tomorrow

From passive learning to active engagement

In a dynamic world that is constantly shifting in line with digital changes, it should come as no surprise that more organizations are looking to technology for answers to their learning and development needs. According to Training Industry, e-learning is increasingly becoming the tool of choice for forward-looking organizations that are eager to upskill their staff and help them remain relevant in a swiftly-evolving business landscape. Indeed, organizations would be hard-pressed to deny the benefits that e-learning has to offer, especially when this learning model is contrasted against the more traditional methods of learning and development that are passive or often ineffective in ensuring long-term retention of information. Certainly, the advantages of using an e-learning model are undeniable – per NOSA, it is cost-effective, time efficient, and easily adaptable; helps boost morale and employee engagement; and offers employees the benefits of learning at their own pace and in their own time. When viewed in this light, adopting an e-learning solution should be the clear answer

An active approach to learning

Of course, there are other benefits as well, central to which is a shift away from passive learning – where information is merely distributed to employees via the organization’s intranet or lengthy PowerPoint presentations in the hope that they absorb something – toward a more active approach to learning, where employees engage with content in a meaningful manner via interactive e-learning courses that can be managed and fully tracked from an organization’s learning management system (LMS).

A win-win for everyone

The age of passive learning has passed. Today, organizations cannot simply distribute guidelines, regulations, mission statements, protocols, statements of procedure, and other essential work knowledge, in static PDFs, Word documents, or PowerPoint formats, expecting that they will be consumed. Why? To start, these formats are not interactive and are often boring or unrelatable to employees. In fact, the core principles of adult learning are grounded in the idea that active learning – where employees engage meaningfully with content – is key to helping employees absorb and utilize information going forward. In addition, the consumption of this information cannot be tracked or verified – even if a learning manager allocates material to staff, all they can ever show is that the files were downloaded and/or opened for a period of time.

However, if an organization converts its learning material into an e-learning format, it can easily verify engagement with each part of a document. The result? The ability to measure employee progress and development and identify areas of learning that are difficult, or confusing, via their LMS systems; enabling organizations to revise their content or institute remedial action based on this information accordingly. It’s a win-win for everyone.
