Employees do not always feel invested in what they do for a company. In fact, only 13 percent of employees feel that they are engaged at work. That results in an almost $7 trillion loss in productivity every year!
Investing in your employees is an important part of creating an engaged team. But what is an easy way for businesses to get their employees invested? Something that is so often overlooked—eLearning.
eLearning is learning by utilizing electronic technologies, usually the internet. Virtual classrooms, electronic simulation and webinars are all forms of eLearning. These might often be thought of as a nice-to-have, something we may want to invest in, but they are not often thought of as a big-ticket item for employee engagement.

However, even the best of us lose a little steam on the job now and then. eLearning can be a great way to keep your team enthusiastic, can help them think about their jobs in a new light and can even bring in new ideas for success.
Encouraging employees to think critically about how they're working and what they're doing, eLearning keeps employees focused on what they can implement, and it also shows them that you are invested in them and their future in your business.
Since eLearning takes place over the Internet, there’s no need to leave the office, making these courses even more time-efficient. Thanks to the evergreen nature of webinars, your employees can watch or rewatch a session anywhere that works for them.
With individually paced courses around skills and topics necessary for their jobs, employees can continuously improve. eLearning delivers relevant information in a timely manner, ensuring your employees are always up to date.
eLearning courses are affordable, flexible and give your team easy access to knowledgeable experts. A great way to get your team motivated is to gather them together to attend a course and discuss its content. This enables your team to collaborate and learn together, without having to invest too much time or money.
Investing in your employees not only benefits them, it benefits your business as well. Engaged employees deliver a better representation of your company, which leads to more satisfied customers. By ensuring that your employees are invested, you are not only fostering employee loyalty but also helping them to reach your organization’s goals.
To help you get your employees started, here is an upcoming eLearning opportunity to ensure your team is just as efficient during the holidays as they are the rest of the time:
Tuesday, November 12 at 10:00 am CT
For many businesses, the holidays create a unique challenge of balancing increased PTO requests, fewer in-office days, significantly fewer workdays, potential increase of new or seasonal workers and high customer demands. Between maintaining business status quo and meeting customer needs, keeping employees happy and productive is paramount, and remote work opportunities and flexibility play an important role in this. While it might be a significant challenge, Partner Jim Carter and Services Marketing Sr. Manager Travis Muller will show you that it is not impossible - efficient team communication and collaboration tools make all the difference whether you’re entering your busiest time of year, or your slowest.
During this webinar, we will discuss:
- Challenges to productivity during the holidays and how to overcome them
- Using technology to boost efficiency, collaboration and success among remote teams
- Positioning your business for success with a focus on productive employee communication and engagement
