Every HR manager will recognize it: the complicated split you find yourself in between employees and management. This certainly applies when it comes to the training budget. Management often wants to be in the first rank for a dime and employees have their own ideas about their development. In the meantime, you must try to keep all the balls in the air. What are the different interests and how do you skipper between them?
Role of HR
In a report that Visma | Raet published in 2017, the role of the HR employee is described as follows: ‘HRM focuses on the importance of employees and manages satisfaction, productivity and loyalty.’ That makes sense, we say. Yet the reality often looks different, even if we look specifically at training courses. Of course, the management of every organization is aware of the importance of employees who are continuously developing. In a healthy situation, the interests of the employee and management should therefore not be too far apart. Nevertheless, it often happens that people think differently about how the training budget is spent.
The best for all parties
By using a good learning management system, you ensure that you can optimally serve both parties. Moreover, you make it a lot easier for yourself.
• Management wants insight
Because all your training processes are automated, you always have direct insight into the status of applications, registrations, examinations, budgets and other progress information. This applies of course to the management, but also to the (line) managers.
• The employee wants choice
With a good learning platform, your employees have access to thousands of complete courses and training, but also to other learning materials such as microlearnings and e-books. Because certainly in these times of crisis, it is good to use shorter learning moments.
• You don’t want to worry
A high-quality LMS system comes with a training intermediary who takes a lot of work off your hands. This way you don’t have to chase providers yourself or enter into complicated negotiations. The training offer is continuously adapted and improved, and you receive very concrete help in stimulating continuous learning within your organization.
