Benefits of corporate LMS

As the COVID-19 spread globally in 2020, many organizations had to switch to remote work and revise their concept of corporate training. Corporate eLearning solutions provide companies with capabilities to maintain high efficiency and performance of their employees in a completely remote environment. In 2021, 79% of organizations will continue to shift their budgets from instructor-led training to online learning. Being accessible, flexible, scalable and cost-effective, learning management systems (LMS), used by 84% of organizations, currently remain the dominating segment on the eLearning market.

The essence of corporate LMS

A corporate learning management system is eLearning software designed to help organizations provide personalized flexible training to their employees, customers, and external partners. A corporate LMS acts as a centralized system hosting learning content, enabling access to it regardless of learners’ location and automating the learning process (you can check our interactive demo to see the key capabilities of a corporate LMS). Companies use corporate LMSs to manage employee professional development, deliver onboarding and compliance training to employees to ensure they remain competitive and compliant with up-to-date industry-specific regulatory requirements.

Key benefits of corporate LMS for business

  • Reduced employee training costs via remote, automated training and learning content reusability.
  • Reduced employee turnover. 94% of employees say they would stay at a company longer if it invested in their learning and development. A corporate LMS can help businesses increase employees’ motivation by providing upskilling and reskilling for career promotion, thus increase employees’ job satisfaction and reduce employee turnover.
  • Streamlined onboarding. A corporate LMS enables creation and delivery of induction courses, which helps companies simplify and speed up employee onboarding.
  • Ensured compliance. By delivering relevant compliance training to employees, businesses ensure their staff keeps up with industry-specific standards and regulations, which helps reduce the risk of potential penalties for non-compliance.
  • Increased training coverage. Using a corporate LMS, large international businesses can provide consistent training for employees spread across multiple locations all over the world.
