Corporate training resources are way too often short compared to actual business needs. Even though most SMBs would love to spend more money and time on developing their employees' skills, operations and daily routines often take over those resources. This is why efficient learning management processes are core to the success of a company’s corporate training program.

Let’s dig a bit more into the benefits of a strong corporate learning strategy and how Workleap LMS’ integration with ADP Workforce Now® will help make this process much easier for small and medium businesses.

Empower your organization with the skills-based canvas.

What is a corporate learning strategy, and why is it important?

A corporate learning strategy is a plan that outlines an organization's approach to employee training and development. It details the goals and objectives of the corporate learning program, the methods and tools used to deliver training, and the measures used to assess the effectiveness of the training.

Here are a few reasons why such a corporate learning strategy is important for a growing SMB.

Improved Employee Development

A well-designed corporate learning strategy can help employees acquire new skills and knowledge that will support their professional growth and development. This, in turn, can contribute to improved job performance and increased productivity. A cohesive corporate learning strategy will also consider the company’s current skill gaps to enhance the global level of knowledge within the organization and ensure no opportunities are lost because of a lack of training.

Competitive Advantage

In today's rapidly changing business environment, organizations need employees who are equipped with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. A corporate learning strategy can help organizations stay ahead of the competition by ensuring that their employees have the right skills and knowledge to meet current and future business needs.

Increased Employee Engagement and Retention

Employee training and development opportunities can increase employee engagement and motivation. When employees see that their employer is investing in their development, they are more likely to feel valued and motivated to stay with the organization.

Improved Organizational Performance

A corporate learning strategy can support overall organizational performance by helping the business to align training programs with its goals and objectives. This can lead to improved efficiency, increased productivity, and better decision-making. This will also contribute to creating content that supports those goals and add more value to the corporate knowledge base.

What are the benefits of integrating an LMS with an HRIS?

Workleap LMS, a Learning Management System, is a platform where companies can create and distribute training content to their staff. Managers and HR teams can also monitor progress and generate completion reports.

ADP Workforce Now is an intuitive HR suite with extensive reporting, data-driven insights, and more. It can be used to store training-related information and individual career development strategies, for example.

Integrating an LMS with an HRIS brings many great benefits for SMBs with growing needs for corporate training but limited human and financial resources. When time is so precious, automating the connection between these two essential HR tools can make everyone’s life so much easier!

Through this new integration, ADP Workforce Now customers can now sync their staff’s data into Workleap LMS to accelerate account creation and enrollments to their corporate training courses and programs. This is a real-time integration that pulls your staff information from ADP® and loads the data into LMS.

With this integration, businesses will be able to manage all aspects of their corporate learning strategy within the ADP Workforce Now platform and bring that strategy to life into Workleap LMS, without having to multiply accounts and data management.

Here are a few benefits of integrating our LMS with ADP.

Improved Efficiency

Automating the account creation by syncing Workleap LMS to ADP will make employee training management seamless and effortless. Imagine onboarding a new hire - Once their account is created on the HRIS, they can be added to LMS and enrolled into a custom learning path with very little manual intervention.

This will improve the efficiency of the training process and save time for HR teams, as they will only need to access one system to track employee progress, monitor the effectiveness of their training programs, and manage their learning content.

Enhanced Employee Tracking

Using Workleap LMS as a corporate learning management tool allows administrators to monitor employee progress and training effectiveness in one central platform. Since your LMS will be connected to the customer’s ADP Workforce Now database, data will always be accurate and consistent.

Limiting the manual transfer of information between multiple systems is also a great way to reduce the risk of potential mistakes or lost information. Employees' training data and certificates will all be centralized and available on your LMS account.

Increased Convenience

Managing subscriptions to many products and services can be quite time-consuming. ADP Marketplace, ADP’s storefront of HR solutions that integrate with ADP, makes it easy for customers to subscribe to Workleap LMS. Clients will be billed for LMS through their ADP Invoice and can access the LMS through ADP Marketplace. Simplifying the purchase process will make the customer experience for SMBs more enjoyable and accelerate the implementation of an LMS into their business.
