No one likes learning through a dry text material. Insert pictures and videos in your course content and you can make corporate learning become an enjoyable experience. You can also integrate your content from any other educational applications you are using in order to create a complete learning experience.

2. Monitor and evaluate your employees

It’s important to evaluate your employees’ performance. Create tasks and submissions to be completed and monitor the progress. This way you can also create processes to reward your employees for high-quality performance. Creating incentives to activate learning is a great way to benefit both your organization and your employees.

3. Engage your employees

The importance of sharing knowledge is crucial if you want to create a learning organization. As a Human Resources Manager, create active discussions and seek for feedback. Ask the participants what they have learned and what areas need more focus. This way you can see how your employees are using the e-learning tool and what they are talking about.

4. Link the progress of your employees to LinkedIn

To increase the professional competency of your employees, consider adding LinkedIn to the learning process. You can set up different skills to be learned from a particular course and then share the information on LinkedIn. You can also hand out certificates to your employees to provide official material about their achievements.
