Dave, your IT guy, complains the new tablet he ordered to speed up maintenance procedures never landed on his desk. The supplier shows a signed receipt by the front desk, but after that, the tablet vanished into thin air. Your policy is all deliveries logged in by the receptionist and their final destination recorded.
The new receptionist claims no one told her to log deliveries, so nothing logged for three months. She guesses or sends a company-wide email if a package comes without a name. Lack of instruction equates to a business loss in time and money.
Did you know companies with excellent employee training practices earn three times more revenue and experience four times better employee retention? Wow. But how is a small business to handle employee training when everyone barely keeps ahead of their routine work?
LMS or Learning Management Systems software assists small businesses in automating employee training. Here’s a selection of the most recommended for small business. TalentLMS, Skyprep, and BizLibrary.
TalentLMS receives high marks for affordability for the number of courses offered and the ability to create your special content easily. Skyprep works great for companies using Google G-Suite. It’s not as affordable as TalentLMS and doesn’t provide a course catalog directly.
BizLibrary serves up a wide range of topics, so it’s a more expensive solution. It’s more of a content provider with LMS features. BizLibrary’s known for engaging tools such as gamification, and you can upload your specific content, too.
