Upscaling the skills of your employees is the key to revamping your business and making it profitable again. However, it’s not an easy task. While some companies prefer to hire consultants or trainers to help their team members get up-to-date with new software, tools, or processes, others invest in employee education programs and online courses. The latter seems like a more sustainable way of investing in your staff to improve their knowledge and skills. Read on to know more about getting your employees upskilled and what measures you can take to make this possible.

Choosing The Right eLearning Courses

In your quest to get your employees upskilled, you might have come across various online courses that your staff can take. However, not all of them will be effective for your business. Before you invest in training your employees, make sure you choose the right courses for your team’s needs. When looking for the ideal courses for your team, you need to consider which skills you want to help them develop. If you're looking at a range of skills from HR to business compliance and soft skills to health and safety, check out the range of eLearning courses from iHASCO.

Helping Your Employees Set SMART Goals

The first step towards getting your employees upskilled is helping them set goals. Setting SMART goals for your employees will help them define the areas where they need to improve and what they need to focus on to get there. The first thing you should do is set up an environment conducive to goal setting in your organisation. Make sure your employees feel comfortable setting goals and talking about their progress. You can also have a goal-setting session at the start of every new year and encourage your team members to set professional and personal goals.

Allocating Time For Training

Make sure you allocate enough time for your team members to complete the courses they're enrolled on. Also, make sure the employees are working on the course during their work hours and not after office hours.

Encouraging Employees To Complete Personal Development Plans

As part of upskilling your employees, you should encourage them to create and implement personal development plans. This will help your employees sharpen their new skills and make the most of their training. Additionally, this will help you and your team's managers stay up to date on your employee's progress which means you'll be able to provide assistance more effectively when needed.

Have A Dedicated Space In The Office For Learning

Finally, you should have a dedicated space in the office for learning. Having a dedicated space for learning will help your team members stay focused and engaged in the learning process. You can have spaces for various learning needs, such as a conference room for online courses and face-to-face learning sessions. Having a dedicated space for learning will allow your team members to focus on their tasks during work hours and complete their learning at a convenient time.
