PRLog - Apr. 30, 2012 - The Corporate eLearning Consortium is supporting National Learning at Work Day on 17 May, part of Adult Learners’ Week, by making its entire eLearning suite of more than 180 courses complimentary for the week.

The wide range of courses on offer includes desktop IT skills, management development and soft skills such as communication, so it’s a great opportunity for companies to offer eLearning to their entire organisations.

According to Towards Maturity, the independent learning technologies benchmarking research organisation, half of the top performing companies in its study say their learners believe relevant eLearning helps further their careers*.  

Towards Maturity also says that top performing organisations use learning technologies to help deliver improvements in their agility – their ability to change their products and processes – which delivers a direct benefit to their business bottom line.

The offer of complimentary eLearning for the week beginning 14 May gives organisations the opportunity to experience the benefits of eLearning for themselves.

Martin Baker, MD of The Corporate eLearning Consortium commented: “It’s been a tough time for British business, and learning and development budgets have never been tighter. So I’m proud to be supporting Learning at Work Day by throwing open our entire eLearning suite to organisations for a week.

“Using eLearning as part of a sensible blended approach to L&D not only saves organisations time and money, “ he added “Research shows that by enhancing the essential skills of their staff businesses can boost their overall agility and therefore profitability as well.”
