How to use an LMS within your organisation effectively

Looking to learn more about the world of Learning Management Systems before you take the plunge? You’re in the right place!

Purchasing an LMS is a journey, and the more informed and prepared you are about what you need out of an LMS, the more successful and enjoyable your experience will be. We’ve discussed the basics of understanding the fundamentals of an LMS, as well as its benefits. To reap the rewards of said benefits, let’s look at how you can most effectively use an LMS within your organisation:


Compliance. Compliance. Compliance.

Repeated three times, because it really is that important. Keeping track of who’s compliant is difficult without a system to track it in – especially if your teams are in different locations. Chances are, you’ve ended up here because not only do you want to develop a learning culture, but you really need to hit those compliance targets. Well, and LMS is going to help you do exactly that. Use your LMS to track all training, whatever the format, to always stay on top of your compliance reporting.


Continual professional development

Let your employees expand their knowledge and skills by providing a platform for extra learning, within or outside their job area. Whether it’s a formal qualification, a chartered institute, or more general development, your employees want to learn, so why not make it easy for them? By normalising the learning people want to do, it’s easier to engage them with those things they have to do.


Onboard your new hires

An LMS will play such a big part in your onboarding process. It simplifies your onboarding process by automating all the useful information and training people need on their first day, helping to get new starters ramped up quickly. Whether it’s IT policies and Fire Safety training or specific learning for their job, an LMS changes the first day from chaotic to simple.


Ease of reporting

Make your LMS work for you. Good LMS platforms track, report and automate real-time data so you can get the right reports to the right people at the right time. Utilise these reports to track the progress of learners and identify areas for further development or gaps around the business. This ease of tracking learner progress makes compliance reporting simple, so you can focus on your strategic L&D goals.


Whether you’re an expert, or completely new to the arena, understanding how to use an LMS effectively within your organisation will not only help the search for your new learning platform, but also support your case when important decisions such as budgets need to be discussed with your stakeholders. Carry on to our next chapter to learn what top features you should look for in an LMS.
