How can e-learning benefit new employees?

Posted by Juliet Caswell

E-learning can benefit employees working at different levels, from upskilling juniors in their daily roles, to creating brand ambassadors in long-serving team members who are already highly skilled and knowledgeable.

Another key employee profile that e-learning can help is the new member of the team. Hired because of their potential to do their job well, it’s important to make sure they are trained, ready and willing to perform to the best of their abilities as quickly as possible. There are different ways that online learning schemes can be used to bring out the best in your new employees and ensure they quickly become a great asset to your company.

Company values

 When a new employee joins, there’s a lot for them to get their head around. Not only their new role, but your business, what it’s about, what it stands for, and how it operates.

Using e-learning can enable you to fully introduce new team members to your business, quickly. The fun and interactive elements of e-learning, such as gamification, are ideal for covering the essential points of your business in an engaging way. Your company values, codes of practice, company history and mission statement could be delivered in a video format with a quiz to follow, for instance.

Online learning means that employees can learn at their own pace and has the added benefit of not sapping resource by occupying other team members’ time

Bespoke training

Complex processes, practices and procedures, and the nuances of how an individual business tackles them, can initially be tough to grasp and potentially overwhelming.

You can create e-learning modules to train new members of a team in any topic necessary; from HR processes, through to brand, sales cycle, system log-ins or health and safety procedures.

Online learning also means that employees can learn at their own pace and has the added benefit of not sapping resource by occupying other team members’ time with briefing sessions. E-learning offers the new employee the opportunity to review content repetitively, if necessary, which might not be the case if they were watching a company presentation or listening to a briefing by their manager.

Micro-learning formats enable you to cover particularly complex topics in separate modules, allowing employees to complete learning programs in digestible bite-sized chunks. On the contrary, by scaling detailed messaging back to the essentials in easily-consumable videos or slides, employees can quickly cover training that they already have a good grounding in.
