5 Ways your Small Business can Benefit from an LMS

WorkPlan provides 5 ways an LMS can improve training in your small business.

As a small business owner, you may not see a need for an LMS to complete your employee training. But if your business is on a path for growth, it is better to get your systems in place whilst you team is smaller, to allow you to scale quicker. Here are a few reasons why an LMS for your small business can save time, money and increase productivity.

Providing consistency.

By implementing an LMS, you can ensure consistency in your training. This means that you can ensure that each member of your team has received the same high-quality training and have the same understanding of your business’s processes. LMS systems, such as WorkPlan Learning, also allow you to effectively give your team feedback, as well as the ability to monitor their performance as they progress through their training.

Streamlining compliance training.

Many jobs and industries require mandated compliance training to ensure that laws, regulations and policies are being followed correctly. In turn, poor compliance training can put you and your employees at risk of complications such as fines or injuries. Using an LMS to administer your compliance training means that you can ensure all your employees are receiving equal, high-quality compliance training to help create a safe and enjoyable work environment.

Cutting down on costs.

It is a common misconception that implementing an LMS system is an expensive venture – this is not the case. An LMS can remove a number of different expenses such as setting aside time to train employees in one-on-one sessions or having to book external trainers. WorkPlan Learning is incredibly flexible and pricing can be catered towards businesses of all sizes.

Making handovers and onboarding easier.

Employee handovers and onboarding are often time-consuming activities – it’s difficult to squeeze in time during the busy day to properly train staff. With an LMS, this process can be planned and structured ahead of time, so that when you hire a new staff member, they have all of the necessary training material from the get-go.

Improving employee productivity.

LMS systems help to align your employee’s learning to your business strategy, therefore boosting their productivity and allowing them to reach KPIs more efficiently. The collaborative nature of WorkPlan Learning also helps to spark innovation and teamwork among your employees, resulting in increased and improved performance.

At WorkPlan, we understand that small businesses are the lifeblood of the Australian economy – 98% of Australian businesses are SMEs! We developed WorkPlan Learning as a collaborative LMS with small business needs in mind. It was designed to keep all your training content in one place, making professional development easily accessible to all your employees. Get in touch with us today to learn more.
