What is a Learning Management System (LMS)?
Yet another technology acronym, LMS stands for Learning Management System. A Learning Management System is used to organise, train and develop team members within an organisation. It helps the Management and Training departments keep track of:
- Who has completed Mandatory & Non Mandatory Training
- Where Employees are in their training and development journey
- Who is interested in developing their skills utilising other training available
- When an employee is due to complete mandatory/refresher training
Who Can Use An LMS?
Any business can utilise an LMS no matter what size or industry. A good one will enable you to:
- Design and create unique Learning Pathways
- Design and Create unique modules to complete within Pathways
- Design and create unique learning content including but not limited to online learning forms, videos and other media
- Create and invite employees to events based on their learning pathways and modules

How will an LMS work for Me?
Your LMS should be able to integrate directly with your Recruitment and On-Boarding Platform or act as a stand-alone solution. As soon as an applicant becomes an employee. Their record should be created in the system for your team to add pathways and the employee will have access to their own portal. This increases your employee engagement by providing instant access to a dedicated area for your employees to be able to learn and grow.
