As businesses expand, having a workforce that is well-trained and up-to-date with knowledge of internal processes becomes critical in order to deliver quality services. It is not easy to find such talented and readily trained employees. Hence some companies have partners or extended work force instead of permanent employees to maintain flexibility in resource base. Managing such a workforce is more difficult than managing permanent employees.
No matter what type of workforce an organization has, it is important that every employee follows the current best practices and common processes to ensure that the offering to the end customer is consistent. Whether it is keeping the sales force up-to-date on the product offerings of the company or training the employees on the products & processes, training and development of workforce plays a pivotal role in ensuring that quality service is delivered to customer. As the company grows, it becomes difficult for the company to bring the workforce together for frequent trainings or product updates.
Technology plays a crucial role in managing the trainings of a global workforce. A comprehensive LMS is a must-use training platform for companies. Here are some of the important features that a company should look out for:
- tracking current skill set of employees
- nominating employees for trainings
- online course delivery
