Does Online Training Offer Better Work Productivity?

Published on 15 July 13

The cut-throat competition in market requires organizations to come up with new strategies to enable them stay ahead of their competitors. Maximizing employee productivity and efficiency is one of the best ways to beat competition. Many organizations know this, but have no idea on how they can motivate their workers to give their best. As a starting point, employers should consider investing in employee training. A highly educated and trained workforce gives organizations an edge.

The benefits of online training

Training employees enables them to gain new knowledge and skills, and improve their existing skills. In this regard, one may choose to enroll for the regular classroom-based training or go the e-learning way. Concerns have been raised regarding the capacity of online business courses to equip the learner's with sufficient practical skills. However, these concerns are baseless. Below is a look at why online training is the best.

  • Convenience: E-learning courses are easily accessible. All that you require to start learning is a computer and Internet connection. As such, you can learn at your own time and pace, and from anywhere - home, office, or even on the move.

  • Variety: Over the years, many colleges and institutions have adopted e-learning to complement their classroom-based learning programs. In addition, the number of courses offered from these institutions has significantly increased to accommodate the needs of all different people. This variety makes it possible for employees in the various fields and sectors to further their knowledge and skills.

  • Cost Effectiveness: Online training programs are more affordable since they eliminate some of the additional expenses associated with physical classroom learning programs. These include travel and accommodation expenses. E-learning also uses alternative methods such as audio/visual tutorials and interactive online platforms, which are more affordable.

How online training promotes productivity at work

1. Balance Job and Class

Many employees shy away from pursuing further studies for fear of taking on an extra burden. Most people find their jobs to be very demanding. Hence, carving some free time out of their work schedule to attend classes is not possible. Attending evening classes after a long day at work doesn’t favor them either - the exhaustion is just not worth the trouble. In any case, after work hours are reserved as personal time. The only viable option would be to take time off from their demanding schedules to study.

The flexibility and convenience of online training enables you to strike the balance between your work and studies. With a flexible schedule you can study at any time or place of your choosing. You are also able to eliminate the hassle and exhaustion caused by constant commuting.

2. Stay up-to-date with industry changes

Many aspects of your career or industry will evolve from time to time. Some of these aspects have a direct effect on your day-to-day responsibilities. In a fast-evolving job market it would be impossible to maximize productivity and efficiency if such changes are constantly ignored. Therefore, it is essential for all employees to stay abreast with any such changes as they come up, and the only way to do so is through regular training programs. Unfortunately, it is not always possible to take time off to go back to class to help you improve the quality of your work. However, with online training programs you can enroll at any time without having to interrupt your normal work schedule.
