A high staff turnover rate is costly. Having an effective onboarding process can train staff quickly and keep them around longer. Whether it is informing the new hire of the programs available to them or letting them know what will be expected of them, onboarding sets the foundation for a harmonious relationship with your employees.
Traditional means of training such as group training often take a long time. It costs a high amount of money and the learning experience might not be the same for everyone. Online training is a quicker and more cost- and time-effective alternative. People can learn and build skills anytime, anywhere.
Having a learning management system can significantly improve the effectiveness and success of online training. E-learning is becoming increasingly popular with medium and large-sized businesses who have their training material well-defined and ready for on-demand learning. Online training can include videos, presentations and documents such as PDF files.
When we started down the path of developing Intuto as a Learning Management System (LMS) that met the specific requirements of the modern SME segment, we started with some ideas, quickly built and tested them and then, based on user feedback, modified the initial platform to meet the real needs of the market. In short, we listened to our customers and released, changed and deleted features from the core idea to meet what they wanted. This was a great approach for the first growth period of the Intuto product and led to some great feature innovation.
As we got more and more customers, we started to have some other challenges - how to manage new developments, how to keep our diverse customers happy and…...eventually speed.
Registrations into courses were growing so fast that in a single month we had the same number of new course registrations as we had had in total for the two years leading up to that month!
I have always enjoyed learning new things, especially in education, so I was very lucky to fall into the perfect role 16 years ago when I came back from my OE. I started at a very small company with a huge vision, and I have been here ever since! Many of my colleagues from university now work in big organisations with pinball, table tennis and even slides - but I wouldn’t change my career path for anything (well maybe Craig Walker’s role) - because eLearning feels good.
Of the many potential health and safety hazards, perhaps the most terrifying to contemplate are fire related. In particular, for office workers without heavy machinery to manage, forklifts to dodge, heights to scale or holes to fall into it's easy for complacency to set in and the very real danger that fire can present can be ignored. Despite this fires are the most common cause of damage and death in any workplace.
There is a small cafe located in the heart of Toronto’s Kensington Market, set up in a quaint home painted a blaze of turquoise, that reminds me of the joy of eating out. Not only does Fika serve wonderful food and a superb elderflower rose water lemonade (I'm not a great coffee drinker) but it fills more than your hunger for sustenance. It fills your hunger for delight. It is quite simply worth the 'cost of admission'. Money well spent.
