There's a common misconception that not-for-profit organizations are free of the business pressures affecting other sectors. Of course, the truth is that you are every bit as concerned with dollars and cents - if not more so. Non-profits must acutely keep track of where every penny goes, especially when funding is unreliable. To be effective you also need a skilled, involved workforce.
At first glance, a Learning Management System (LMS) might seem a bit of a luxury, but we can show you how it can improve not just the way you train, but
many of the ways you communicate. We want to show you that an LMS is not a cost, but an investment - one that will rapidly pay for itself and produce tangible benefits for the foreseeable future.
Everyone needs some sort of training at some time. When new people join your organization there's a period of acclimation; they need to know what's expected of them. An LMS can provide an easily accessible central resource for making that kind of information available. The result is clarity and understanding. Those same advantages can apply to specific training courses that, thanks to AICC and SCORM compliance, can be sourced cost-effectively from outside suppliers or created by your own people. Distribution of this material is quicker and easier to control. You can send it to a hundred people, or a thousand, as easily as sending it to just one. For some organizations, this distribution method has proven so effective that they've covered the cost of the LMS with just the amount saved in copy paper!
Effective communication is more than getting the message out. A Learning Management System works both ways, enabling people to use a single source to access training or other messages, while also giving you a comprehensive set of monitoring and reporting tools - particularly valuable if you need to prove actions for regulatory compliance. It's also useful for involving people in processes that give them a greater sense of ownership. It's far more costly to train new people than retain experienced personnel. Providing an atmosphere where people feel they're being listened to, that they're part of the community, is extremely important in retention.
Our LMS can help when you're dealing with outside agencies as well, offering a secure area for storage and accessing collaborative material. The system can also make live conferencing available, or provide a central hub or forum for individuals to share knowledge and ideas. As this is cloud technology, geography and time zones present no barriers, allowing people to engage whenever and wherever suits them best.
Perhaps the LMS’ greatest benefit is in releasing people from numerous, time-consuming day-to-day functions, allowing them to focus on efforts that will have real impact - probably a big part of why they joined your organization in the first place.
Precisely how our Learning Management System would be most beneficial for your organization is something we would like to discuss - and it costs you nothing to get answers to your questions and a thorough evaluation of possibilities.
