How to use an LMS to accelerate employee onboarding?

by | Apr 27, 2023 | DigitalChalk, Tips & Tricks

An LMS is at the heart of employee onboarding, especially for large organizations. A robust LMS helps organizations to create a structured onboarding program tailored to specific job roles and titles of new hires and offers a consistent experience to all new employees.

Consider using your Learning Management System (LMS) in the following six ways to support your organization’s onboarding plan.

  1. Create a comprehensive onboarding program: Use the LMS to create a comprehensive onboarding program that includes all the necessary information and training materials new employees need to get up to speed quickly. This may include company policies, job-specific training, and information about company culture and values.
  2. Assign courses and track progress: Use the LMS to assign relevant courses and track progress as new employees work through the onboarding program. This can help ensure that new employees are receiving the necessary training and are on track to become productive members of the team.
  3. Use gamification to engage employees: Utilize gamification elements, such as points, badges, and leaderboards, to engage and motivate new employees as they complete their onboarding program.
  4. Use multimedia elements to enhance the learning experience: Incorporate multimedia elements, such as videos and interactive exercises, to make the onboarding experience more engaging and interactive.
  5. Offer support and resources: Provide access to support and resources, such as course materials and discussion forums, to help new employees get the most out of their onboarding experience.
  6. Use the LMS to track and measure the effectiveness of your onboarding program: Use the LMS to track and measure the effectiveness of your onboarding program. This can help you identify areas for improvement and make any necessary adjustments to ensure that your onboarding program is meeting the needs of your new employees.
