5 Ways An LMS Can Improve Your Employee Engagement

Employee disengagement is one of the most persistent problems for organisations these days. According to research, only 15% of employees express high levels of engagement in their workplace. Isolated working environments during the covid-19 outbreak have further worsened the situation.

This change in the level of motivation and engagement among employees has also led to other serious problems such as high employee turnover, decreased productivity and low performance quality, almost across all industries. Thus, businesses are now actively seeking ways to push up the energy levels of their workforce and boost their engagement.

As per experts, one of the effective ways to achieve this could be through offering improved training opportunities to employees. Businesses can implement advanced learning management systems and enhance the efficacy of their existing training and development programmes. This will allow employees to realise that their organisation is willing to invest in them. Plus, learning new skills will also boost their confidence which can drive up the engagement levels.

The right LMS with the right capabilities can also help you in creating and delivering custom content for specific areas of work.

Here is a list of 5 ways in which using an LMS can improve your employee engagement

1.     Easy Access

The most basic feature of an LMS is that it allows users to access the content from anywhere anytime. This means that it is no longer required for the trainer and the trainees to be physically present in a room together. Instead, they can use an LMS to perform their respective functions from their homes or any other remote location. While this feature is very helpful in general, its value has increased 10 times during the pandemic.

Since now employees can participate in training and development events from the comfort and safety of their own homes, they will focus more on learning and less on factors like health risks. This improved focus and comfort can surely boost engagement levels.

2.     Mobile-device Compatibility

Another aspect of the ease of access features of LMS is mobile compatibility. Most LMS are compatible with multiple devices including laptops, PCs, smartphones, tablets, etc. This allows learners to access training from remote locations without having to sit in front of computer screens for long hours. Since information is available anywhere, anytime, employees can learn at their own pace which relieves the stress and increases engagement.

3.     Gamification

Most LMS come with a variety of game-like features such as leaderboards, colour badges, ranking charts, rewards, and much more. Incorporating such gamification elements in corporate training courses has proven to boost engagement and improve knowledge retention among learners.

These features can turn learning into a fun activity and motivate employees to be more involved in the sessions. Rewards and recognition in the form of colourful badges also breed healthy competition which in turn results in repeat visits and increased course completion rates.

4.     Diverse Presentation Tools

Using an LMS for employee training not only allows your employees to choose the place and pace of learning but also the format of learning. Trainers can create content in multiple formats such as audio or video lessons, spreadsheets, PPTs, and even podcasts. This enables organisations to create engaging training material for employees of all ages and preferences.

In addition to this, trainers can also deliver complex information in the form of small and simple modules instead of lengthy courses. This ensures a constant flow of information without overburdening the trainee leading to increased engagement and knowledge retention.

5.     Learner-Specific Content

Employees are more likely to participate in training if the material is relevant to their job. Similarly, if the topic is too wide or unrelated to their line of work, they may be less engaged. Implementing the right LMS allows you to customise courses depending on an employee’s function and thus, catering to his specific learning needs. This can motivate them to participate in the training willingly and as a result, drive up their engagement levels.

Conclusion

Businesses that invest in the right LMS will surely have an engaged workforce. Thus, if you haven’t already implemented an LMS to train your employees, now is the right time to do it.
