How to Reduce Employee Turnover Using An LMS

How to Reduce Employee Turnover Using An LMS

WorkPlan helps you understand why employee turnover occurs and how you can reduce it with a collaborative corporate LMS.

Recruiting and training is an expensive endeavour for any organisation. Employers need to create job descriptions, advertise the job, filter through applications, read resumes, contact and interview candidates, and then finally hire them. But the process doesn’t stop there; after hiring, employees need to go through intensive onboarding and training so that they can do their job effectively.

All of this can take a couple of months and can be an arduous process. Although new recruits tend to be keen learners, they can drop off anytime throughout this process if they feel “disenchanted”. On the other hand, established employees may leave if they feel disengaged from the organisation or if they feel like they’re not developing further in their role.

Other factors that can cause employees to leave are lack of recognition and lack of flexibility.

This all can be attributed to the learning process being clunky, inaccessible, or just plain boring. Here are some ways you can change that with a collaborative corporate Learning Management System (LMS).

Flexible learning

The employee onboarding process is often at the expense of the employee. Long commutes, relocating, lodging, etc. can burden an employee often making them feel disengaged with the organisation.

And in the age of COVID-19, organisations have shifted to a more hybrid working, allowing employees to work from home or from the office. This varied work arrangement can cause disruptions in training and upskilling.

Because all the content is stored in the cloud, a collaborative corporate LMS can help by allowing employees to freely access learning content from home, making professional development flexible.


The more connected an employee feels with colleagues and company culture, the more likely they are to engage with their job and the organisation. Collaborative learning is one way to help employees foster and build relationships with their colleagues. WorkPlan allows anyone in the company to create a learning module when the needs arise. Meaning that manager can create quick this quickly and easily when the team needs to be trained on a new program or platform.

Engaged feedback

The collaborative aspect of a corporate LMS allows managers to give feedback to employees wherever they are, whether they are working from home or in the office. For instance, an employee can film themself delivering a pitch and managers or other co-workers can give feedback.

This gives employees the chance for professional development while also satisfying their need for recognition. Feedback also helps employees engage with the organisation where 85% of employees reported to take more initiative when given feedback.


Breaking up old and long learning material into smaller, bite-sized content that is easier to consume, helps with knowledge retention. Training will be less of an arduous task and will help your employees perform better.

It’s also an excuse to audit your training materials and filter out outdated information. It’s also easier to update the information to keep up with the company’s goals, vision, mission, and processes.

WorkPlan Learning is a powerful collaborative LMS for organisations. With WorkPlan, employee onboarding and continuous training can be a breeze; it gives managers the power to tailor learning content or choose from over 130 different premade courses. Contact us for a free demo today.
