Three Reasons Why Tracking Training Should Be Your Top Priority

GyrusAIM, LMS, Training, Workplace development  By: admin

Got training? Prove it. One of the most important factors in T&D is tracking your company’s programs. Who is certified? When is programs are conducted? What is required and what is optional?

Keeping track will not only keep your business up and running (legally), but will lead you to further success because it will allow you to create the most effective program possible. Below are three reasons why tracking students is important:

1. Compliance

Without laws, industry standards, and regulations, training would not be the same. Don’t risk legal action by forgetting to track all of the programs that are going on. Human rights and health and safety are two main compliance categories where T&D is pertinent. But simply conducting the it is not enough—you must track it and therefore be able to prove that your company is compliant and up-to-date.

2. Productivity

By tracking learning, you can discover patterns in the productivity of your workplace. Do performance levels start to diminish after a certain amount of time? Are there more mistakes made after a worker has been with the company for a certain amount of years? A program could be the perfect solution to boost performance and refresh the employee’s knowledge. It can also provide employees with the motivation to succeed and excel in your organization.

3. Record keeping

Referencing back to reason number one (compliance), many laws require you to have documentation of your efforts, such as health and safety requirements. Certifications are also important to keep on record, such as in the healthcare industry. Offering T&D opportunity is simply not enough in today’s day and age, you must also be able to prove that opportunities are being offered and employees are participating regularly as needed. Referencing reason number two (productivity), record keeping can also help you discover which records are effective and helpful, and which ones do not yield as significant results (ILT versus eLearning).

You’ll also need to get rid of your spreadsheets, file folders and paperwork (we think you’ll be more than happy to see them go). If you’re conducting ILT or eLearning, we suggest keeping it organized in a learning management system, such as GyrusAim. Various reporting and certification functions will allow you to manage and track records and employee progress without having to replace any ink cartridges or fix paper jams (again, something we highly doubt you’ll miss dealing with).
