eLearning for HR Managed Services

Managed Services refers to a range of services that a business can choose to outsource for day-to-day technology and other business needs. A managed services contract can range from managing a small set of IT needs to outsourcing entire departments. When engaging a managed service provider (MSP), your company does not abandon the entire managerial control of the outsourced function, and you can choose the specific services you want managed externally (and which ones you will maintain in-house). In recent years, Human Resources (HR) functions have emerged as the services organizations are most likely to choose to outsource.

The Business Case for HR Managed Services

Outsourcing has become an increasingly popular option as companies seek to reduce time and resources their HR departments expend on transactions and administration. Through managed services, the company can allow their HR professionals to spend more of their time on high-value, strategic activities. The outsourcing strategy can also lead to significant reductions in costs to the business. Some of the areas that HR departments are likely to outsource include payroll, benefits administration, and other routine tasks.  Adding structure to the employee onboarding and training process has also become a candidate for HR managed services.

How HR Managed Services Can Drive Positive Change

HR managed service providers typically commence an engagement with a thorough review a company’s current processes. This can include the way you process payroll, manage contracts, and how you handle your work with suppliers and contract workers. They then explore opportunities to capture and maximize savings while reducing spend and optimizing HR operational efficiencies. They may also uncover liabilities within your current processes in an effort to reduce your risk.

eLearning and HR Managed Services

In recent years, as cloud-based technologies have continued to evolve, eLearning has emerged as a cornerstone for employee training and is now commonly included as part of an HR managed services engagement.  Leveraging eLearning technologies, HR managed services organizations take responsibility for building and delivering all aspects of employee learning and training, including onboarding, orientation, skill-specific training, compliance awareness, and more.

Some of the benefits of eLearning as a component of HR managed services can include:

Cost Savings

eLearning programs can be built, delivered, and managed at a fraction of the cost of traditional, classroom-based training because it eliminates such costs as travel, venue fees, catering, and the printing and distribution of learning materials.

Consistency

One of the challenges with classroom-based training is in maintain an accurate and consistent message between sessions and programs.  eLearning eliminates this challenge by ensuring that all students are working from a single, up-to-date set of training materials.

Convenience

eLearning offers a level of convenience unmatched by classroom-based training as employees can conduct their learning activities at any time and from any place that is convenient for them.  All that is required is an Internet connection.

Self-Paced

With eLearning, there is no need for students to work at the pace set by the instructor as they can work at their own pace and even revisit content as many times as they need to before moving onto the next section.

Messaging and Collaboration

Many eLearning platforms now offer collaboration tools to support and enhance the online learning process.  They may also allow students to message directly with their instructors when they need to.
