Online Employee Onboarding Training

Harnessing eLearning for Online EmployeeOnboard Training

Onboarding is a universal process that is essential to every company’s success. When done right, it makes a new employee feel welcome and sets them up for success. When done improperly, it can lead to frustration, lack of understanding around core job functions and high turnover.

The challenge is that companies are busy. Onboarding takes time, effort and dedication. It can be costly, time-consuming and, if it is done incorrectly, it can create inefficiencies that further disrupt business operations.

Online training is providing companies and organizations an easier, more efficient way to deliver world-class onboarding.

A new mindset for a new world

Whether employing an LMS system and developing internal content for corporate online onboarding internally – or outsourcing onboarding program creation – you can efficiently streamline training. This will ultimately save time, money, and drive revenue.

Using eLearning solutions for onboarding offers several advantages:

  • Minimizes the need for core staff to take time out of their schedules for one-on-one onboarding
  • Training can be done from anywhere at any time (no need for travel)
  • Online resources are always in place if a new employee needs a refresher
  • Multimedia format enhances interest vs. manuals and lectures
  • Consistent training and messaging

Demonstration videos, animations and illustrations are being used to enhance learning and engagement. Again, you simply create the content once instead of having to reinvent the wheel with each new hire. Additionally, virtual reality is gaining traction as a tool for simulating work environments in the online classroom, and replicating situations that would not be otherwise possible.
