eCom Scotland helps future-proof organisations' learning strategies

By: Bob Little PR
DUNFERMLINE, Scotland - Jan. 11, 2022 - PRLog -- The internationally-known provider of online training and assessment, eCom Scotland, is helping organisations future-proof their learning and assessment strategies. It has been encouraged to take this step by the growing focus on combatting climate change and the workplace becoming carbon neutral – fostered by the COP26 climate change conference held in Glasgow towards the end of last year.

Among the organisations with which eCom is working in this way is NetRegs, a partnership between the Northern Ireland Environment Agency (NIEA), in Belfast, and the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), based in Stirling, which provides free environmental guidance for businesses of all sizes throughout Northern Ireland and Scotland. In particular, NetRegs is using eCom's learning solution tools to check their environmental compliance.

Wendy Edie, eCom's Managing Director, explained, "As terms such as carbon footprint and net-zero become more prominent, over 95% of the organisations with which we work recognise that, to operate efficiently, effectively and in accordance with increasing legislation and compliance regulations, they'll need to change the way they function. This means them taking steps now to future-proof their business.

"So, eCom has developed several relevant online learning and assessment tools. Together with some sound operational advice to enable organisations to move towards being carbon neutral, these tools provide a raft of solutions which are benefiting many eCom clients around the world."

While people may think carbon neutrality or net-zero are only issues for large companies, the process to achieve these goals is the same regardless of the size of organisation involved, points out eCom. This process starts with understanding the organisation's existing carbon footprint, setting targets and taking action by reducing and offsetting that footprint.

"As well as embarking on this process for altruistic, planet-saving reasons, becoming more carbon neutral can save your organisation money in the longer term," said Wendy. "eCom's eBook '5 Steps to Digital Transformation' - available from eCom's website – which outlines why it's important to be on the digital ladder, highlights the five steps to digital transformation success and lists the top ten skills the workforce needs to get there.

"In working with our clients on this issue, some 72 per cent of them are reporting that one of the biggest obstacles when trying to implement any type of transition is getting organisational-wide behavioural changes in place.

"eCom is already helping many organisations around the world future-proof their learning and development strategies," commented Wendy.

eCom's eBook '5 Steps to Digital Transformation' is available from the Resources section of eCom's website:
