Certification is one of the most important elements of eLearning-based corporate training. The practice of warding certificates to your employees upon their successful completion of a course or learning path can help increase program participation and encourage the completion of training objectives.
Certification can provide a benchmark for employee development, making it easy for your staff to demonstrate the expertise and competencies they are earning through effective training. In the corporate world, this type of recognition can help to boost employee productivity and enhance their growth and career opportunities. Training certification is common practice in role-specific training, such as HR, IT, Sales, and Customer Service. Role-specific training can be supplemented with generalized training to enhance soft skills, such as communication, time management, accountability, and more.
The Benefits of Offering Training Certificates to Your Employees
Some of the primary reasons to offer certificates to your employees to for the completion of learning and training objectives van include:
Your employees are busy and asking them to make the time to add learning to their busy professional and personal schedules can be a lot, especially if your program includes any after-hours training expectations. Providing recognition upon the successful completion of a course or learning path by issuing a certificate can go a long way toward motivating your staff to complete their training in a timely manner.
It can be difficult for a company to assess and compare staff skillsets, even for employees who work in similar roles. Issuing certificates to support the completion of company-driven learning and training objectives can help you determine the level of knowledge each employee can bring to a given task or project.
Keeps Employees Current
Many training objectives must be repeated at set intervals in order to ensure that the employee skillset is up-to-date in a changing and dynamic environment. This can be especially true in areas like cyber security and technology, where frequent changes demand ongoing learning. Offering certificates with expiration dates can help provide assurance that your staff is keeping current with changing learning and training demands.
As you may have noticed, it is now common practice for people to share their earned learning and training certificates on social media. While this is a valuable way for employees to received well-deserved recognition for their learning achievements, it also offers a passive online marketing opportunity for your company or for the organization that originates and issues the certificate.
