As the demand for corporate training and employee development continues to grow with the increasing complexity of corporate workplaces, as well as global competitive pressures, the opportunity for corporate training providers is better than ever. While most every company, regardless of size or industry, now sees the value in offering a corporate training program, many organizations simply do not have the time or resources to develop and manage these programs. Corporate Training Providers fill this void by offering technology, content, and services to help ensure that employees can acquire the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in their roles and make meaningful contributions to the success of the organization.
The Role of Corporate Training Providers
When companies look to outsource to corporate training providers, they are generally expecting three components to support the program:
Over the past decade or so, eLearning has emerged as the primary approach to corporate training and employee development. In eLearning-based training, you leverage electronic technologies (the Internet, primarily) to build, deliver, manage, and track corporate training programs. The core technology to support this is a Learning Management system (LMS) and clients often expect the inclusion of this technology as part of a corporate training offering.
A comprehensive training program calls for a wide variety of content to support the various roles and responsibilities of an organization. While some topics will require the development of customized training content, the use of ready-made content can reduce the time required to deliver training while increasing the cost-effectiveness of the offering.
The third component companies expect will be in the services required to deliver, manage, and monitor the program. The services component should include the evaluation of needs, ideas to drive and maximize employee engagement, gathering and analyzing feedback, and making revisions to ensure the ongoing success of the program.
LMS Portals: Software and Content for Corporate Training Providers
At LMS Portals, we provide our corporate training provider partners with a SaaS-based, multi-tenant LMS to support your training engagements. The platform allows you to launch and manage a dedicated eLearning environment (portal) for each of your corporate training clients. Each portal can include the customer’s unique branding elements along with embedded tools for course development, user onboarding, group management, learning path creation, live remote training, certificate awarding, analytics, and more.
Our subscription model allows you to access the capacity you require to support your program, along with the flexibility to expand as your business grows over time.
We also offer our training provider partners access to a library of 140+ ready-made and customizable courses, covering most every aspect of employee development. In working with our library, you can create powerful learning paths by combining any number of courses and setting the sequence in which they must be completed. You can then choose to award a certificate for the completion of any course or learning path.
