Acorn Experts detail how an LMS can boost employee engagement
Employees of today seek value and growth from their work. A learning management system (LMS) can allow them to continuously upskill throughout their employee lifecycle by weaving learning into their day-to-day schedule.
An LMS bears multiple features which are great for boosting engagement if utilised to their full potential. These include microlearning, quality content, accessibility, insights, gamification and multimedia. They also accommodate the collaborative and independent learner.
"An LMS meets employees where they're already spending a lot of their time: online and out of office," says Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director).
"With an LMS, you could segment content into microlearning courses that can be accessed via a mobile device. Employees can then engage with learning when and where it suits them – which encourages them to self-motivate in the process."
The LMS is also great for improving communication channels. They offer employees a way to communicate that speaks to them. Enabling push notifications means employees are constantly and instantly in the loop, while discussion or notice boards foster conversation and ensure individuals feel like they're part of the business.
