It is clear now that the success of a company is directly proportional to the preparation of its human capital. Corporate training is therefore the key to increase and improve staff skills. However, this path is not completely clear and straightforward, and that is when e-learning comes in the game.
Corporate training: a crucial asset
Nowadays, companies are much more aware of the importance of digital transformation processes as a priority to be addressed in order to remain competitive on the market. Skills therefore become a significant knot to be solved to ensure the full implementation of new operational paradigms based on innovation. In fact, even the most sophisticated technology does not bring any benefit if no one is able to use it.
Therefore, it becomes essential to have skilled people, adequately trained in order to complete efficiently their daily tasks.
The skill mismatch, the relationship between the supply of jobs and the real availability of candidates for those roles, is a long-standing problem for the Italian marketplace, both in the context of industry and in that of services, and which represents a brake on development. A situation that technology can help to overcome, thanks to e-learning platforms created precisely to meet the training needs of companies, which can range from regulatory compliance to technical notions up to security protocols.
The added value of online learning: three point of strenght
Offering your staff the opportunity to enhance their skills by continuously enriching them is precisely the purpose of corporate training. Companies that focus on training can benefit from three specific strengths such as:
- performance improvement: enhancing the knowledge of your staff allows them to become more efficient and capable in carrying out their tasks;
- innovating processes and make one’s productivity or service provision more effective: by adopting specific skills in the company, it is possible to implement different solutions to redesign processes in order to accelerate digital transformation and embrace all its benefits, such as speeding up work and cost reduction;
- enhance human capital: allowing your employees or collaborators to be involved in a training course means focusing on them and having an interest in their professional and personal growth, as workers but also as people. This choice will be well received by the staff, who will feel more motivated in their activities.
Upskilling e Reskilling
The benefits of in-company training are manifold. In fact, they occur both in the case in which it is desired to improve the skills of employees that are already part of the team or when you need to train junior figures who have just arrived or even for workers who have to change their roles.
In fact, in this context, upskilling and reskilling activities take on particular value. In the first case it is a question of giving a boost to the skills of workers already inserted in a work environment, deepening their knowledge of a subject or offering new tools to improve and grow. In the second case, however, it relates to create new skills, of training a person who has the need or desire to enter a new sector or to change role in the same company. In both cases, it is an important push to address the job market by responding to the needs of businesses.
Training is also essential for the integration of newcomers into the company. The junior figures, in fact, find themselves in the position of having to learn the operational dynamics quickly while working at the same time. So, technology comes to the rescue of employers, thanks to the flexibility offered by e-learning platforms for optimizing time and therefore for obtaining the desired results.
