Talking about HR tech with Learnster
There's a wide range of HR tools on the market, to help with different aspects of HR operations and people strategy. We had a chat with the CEO and founder of Learnster, Mikael Larsson, to talk about how a great LMS can help boost employee engagement and performance.
Tell us, Mikael, what exactly is Learnster?
Learnster develops the LMS (Learning Management System) of tomorrow for growing organizations aspiring to achieve maximum learning in minimum time. Learnster’s cutting-edge technology creates new ways to communicate and share information with the entire organization. We help organizations involve subject matter experts in the creation of everything from micro learnings and single courses to onboarding schemes and dynamic training programs.
Just like us at Eletive, we know that you folks at Learnster are passionate about employee experience. Tell us about the connection between continuous skills development and employee engagement.
Providing continuous skills development is one of the main characteristics of an attractive employer. Not only does it build confidence and capabilities, it's also a key driver of engagement. When a company invests in skills development, employees find that they can accomplish their personal career goals within the organization. As a result, they become more likely to increase their commitment to the company and its goals.
Studies show that 94% of employees are willing to stay longer if the company invests in their career development. In other words, skills development is a motivator far greater than both salaries and titles.
How does Learnster’s LMS help organizations increase employee engagement?
Unlike traditional LMSs, Learnster supports learning opportunities top-down, bottom-up and peer-to-peer. That means that organizations can provide both mandatory training and optional courses for skills development. Learning resources such as an internal knowledge academy give employees the tools that they need to take ownership of their own development. Involve the organization’s subject matter experts in creating, updating and reviewing course material. Sharing know-how does not only boost the expert’s own knowledge, it is also a confidence booster!
So, it sounds like Eletive and Learnster are a great combo for companies looking to boost employee engagement?
Indeed! Eletive provides actionable, real-time insights into employee needs and wellbeing. The information helps HR and L&D professionals make informed decisions and take appropriate actions. Employee insights generated through Eletive can be used to set individual goals and agendas for skills development strategies. Tailored training programs can then be created, packaged, and shared through Learnster’s LMS. It's a great way to provide fun and interactive learning experiences that boost the knowledge levels, meet your objectives and drive employee engagement.
