It’s time to invest in bespoke eLearning – and here’s why!
Transforming the L&D industry for over 20 years, bespoke eLearning content is more than just a fancy way to engage employees.
Bespoke eLearning courses are tailor-made for your business. They’re branded especially for your organisations, they home in on specific company objectives, and they can even be designed to feature your very own employees!
When choosing eLearning courses, you usually have two choices: off-the-shelf or bespoke.
Great quality off-the-shelf content (like our very own Engage in Learning courses) are amazing for any non-specific business needs or policies. Think: GDPR, First Aid, or Slips, Trips and Falls.
But when there are specific needs (communicating company values, highlighting the importance of employee safety or improving customer service in the retail industry) then that’s where bespoke content ticks all the boxes.
70% of UK employees want their workplace eLearning to be more interactive and fun. Almost three-quarters of your business is crying out to be engaged like never before when learning new skills.
So, if you have the chance to bring personalisation, enjoyment, creativity, and brand awareness into the mix with bespoke eLearning – it’s a no brainer, right?
But if you’re still umming and ahhing, here’s why you absolutely must invest in bespoke eLearning:
Signed, sealed, delivered – it’s yours!
Seriously, bespoke eLearning courses are yours and yours alone.
Customised with your brand, designed with your company objectives or specific policies, and developed with relevant content for your employees – a bespoke eLearning course really is solely for you and your employees.
Options are limitless, from something out of this world to replicating your work environments; featuring real employees, and even using imagery of your offices will help keep employees focused and connect more to what they’re learning.
Employees are more inclined to sit up, take notes, and engage while learning if it includes Dave from Marketing and Lisa from Accounting.
Every business is unique, or at least, every business that wants to be more successful than their competitor has to be unique.
So why stop when it comes to values, objectives and upskilling? Keep the uniqueness flowing through the workforce, the employee experience, and L&D strategies.
Maximise employee’s happiness and engagement
94% of employees say they would be more willing to stay with their current employer if they invested in their learning and development.
Online learning in general increases retention rates by as much as 60% compared to the 10% retention rate of typical classroom learning.
Add real-world scenarios and gamification to workplace eLearning, and employees will feel more motivated, engaged, and satisfied with their professional development.
