Do you have the right learning management system in place to support onboarding new hires?
Today, the United States government reported better than expected employment statistics – a net addition of 200,000 nonfarm payroll jobs in the month of December 2011 and a drop in the unemployment rate to 8.5%.
The feeling is we may have finally seen the bottom of this much extended recession in the U.S. While these results are still not great, and certainly elevated from just four years ago, it does indicate we may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel – and it is not a freight train.
As we end the first week of the new year with this encouraging news, is the country ready to bring back employees in meaningful numbers, get the newly employed up to speed and productive as soon as possible (known as “onboarding”) and get more competitive?
The tools to assist in the onboarding process have significantly changed and improved over the past four years when we were last hiring in earnest. Specifically, social learning management systems (LMS) for companies of all sizes have improved in terms of easy-of-use for both learners and administrators, easy to implement, and much more affordable. Moreover, overextended IT functions need not take on a new project with many social LMSs are now fully hosted, SaaS solutions, allowing department heads to oversee the implementation and ongoing management of an LMS.
Getting your new employees productive is critical to reinforce the decision to expand your team was a correct decision. Having affordable, state-of-the-art learning tools to assist you in getting new staff to productivity at top flight speed will accelerate your ROI in the hiring decision, and ensure you stay one step ahead of the competition, wherever in the world they may be.
