How Agronomix E-Learning Empowers Employees & Benefits Your Bottom Line
It was Leonardo da Vinci that said, “Learning never exhausts the mind,” and at Agronomix, we’ve long recognised the value of continuous learning. In fact, did you know that companies with strong learning cultures have higher employee retention rates ranging from 30 to 50%? Recognizing this, Agronomix continue to support businesses in fostering a learning culture through our long-standing and well-established e-learning opportunities.
The world has undergone a dramatic technological shift in the last few years. We used online systems to communicate with colleagues, family, and friends, as well as to operate our businesses day-to-day. This change appears to be here to stay post-pandemic, especially when it comes to learning. According to Tech Jury research, the US e-learning market will grow by $12.81 billion between 2020 and 2024. This dramatic increase in growth is likely due to the fact that 89% of employees now want training available wherever and whenever they need it to do their job. Your development opportunities should not be limited to your workplace or desk. They but should be available to you whenever and wherever you need them.
Benefits of E-Learning
Studies conducted over the last few years have found that employees who receive committed training demonstrated increased levels of organisational commitment and were willing to go the extra mile to support teams and accept group goals. Despite this, a survey by Lorman found that 76% of employees still believed their companies should provide more digital skills training and only 44% of them reported that their employers currently do!
We get it, e-learning may not appear to be as effective as traditional training at first glance. However, the data speaks for itself, and it says otherwise! 85% of online learners said their experience with e-learning was better, or equally as effective as, their face-to-face classes. Better yet, IBM training report that employees can learn up to 5x more using online learning techniques compared to traditional in person learning methods.
Furthermore, e-learning offers a low-cost alternative for training opportunities. Not every business has the luxury of investing in training courses. Since e-learning is conducted through digital channels, businesses can save on several costs. For example, training venues, accommodation, travel, and materials. The bottom line is that a well-trained workforce is a best performing one. With a motivated and engaged workforce, your business can usher in improved customer satisfaction, revenue, profit, and a more generally improved bottom line.
