Corporate Continuing Education Courses for the New Year

Need a New Year’s Resolution? How about devoting some time to career development? To assist you, CEU360.com has hundreds of hours of corporate continuing education courses available.

Corporate Continuing Education Courses

“I want to lose 50 pounds!”

“I’m starting an exercise program.”

“I’m going to quit eating sweets.”

It’s that time of year again… the gyms are full of eager participants ready to tackle their New Year’s goals. So, how can you and your healthcare team take advantage of this “healthy” season, too?

First, set your own personal health goals for the New Year. You can’t effectively motivate your patients (or fellow employees) to jump on the healthy bandwagon if you, yourself, are not in optimum shape. Set a good example and implement a New Year’s Resolution of your own.

Second, help your patients achieve their goals. This time of year patients are determined to lose weight, begin exercising or follow a healthy-eating program. So, take advantage of the opportunity and encourage them in their efforts. To learn more about inspiring healthy habits, utilize one of our corporate continuing education courses:

Obesity in Rehabilitation

Warding Off Obesity as we Age

Why is Employee Engagement Important & What LMS Features Can Drive Engagement?

Why is employee engagement important? It seems like a no-brainer! But, the truth is that many companies don’t have an employee engagement program in place. This begs the question, is there really any benefit to engaging employees?

Why is Employee Engagement Important?What makes one company more superior to another?

1.) People. While better products and better technology certainly matter, creating long-term strength requires attention to people. Both customer satisfaction (great customer service) and a high-quality workforce (great employees) produce the largest advantage over competitors.

2.) Longevity. The bottom line is that employee engagement equals employee retention. And, employee retention saves businesses money, time and productivity.

How do you improve employee engagement?

A recent gallop poll survey showed that 70% of American employees did not feel engaged, involved in, enthusiastic or committed to their workplace. And, according to Software Advice, “One solution that has sprung up in recent years to combat this trend is the rise of learning management systems (LMSs): software systems that promote continual education in the workplace.”

An LMS provides employees a special perk they won’t receive at another company. In the healthcare field specifically, one of the easiest and most cost-effective incentives is to utilize an LMS that houses continuing education opportunities in addition to orientation content.

Choosing the right LMS: Which LMS features drive engagement?

While there are more companies utilizing an LMS, the same companies unfortunately are having problems encouraging ongoing utilization of the software. Therefore, it’s critical to choose an LMS with features that promote a higher rate of employee engagement.

Software Advice recently surveyed full-time employees to see which popular LMS features they would use most, and what would encourage them to use their company’s online learning tools more often. The results of their study showed:

1.) Micro-Learning Would Engage Over Half of Respondents.

When online training tools are broken up into short sessions, 58% percent of respondents said they would be more likely to use the LMS. Therefore, companies who create custom orientation content should consider breaking the content down into small, short sessions. Or, they should utilize an LMS that allows employees to take breaks while completing their orientation or continuing education courses (i.e. the employee does not have to sit through a 5 hour course; they can pause the course, take a break, and pick up where they left off at a later time). The CEU360.com LMS includes this feature.

Micro-Learning Would Engage Over Half of Respondents

2.) Employees Prefer “Gamification”.

“Functions you would normally see in video games—e.g., point systems, leaderboards and badges—can help incentivize workers to interact with their company’s LMS.” In other words, create contests that drive utilization of the software.

Employees Prefer “Gamification”.

3.) Social Learning Tools Increase Engagement.

“Stemming from the massive growth of social media over the past decade, the implementation of social learning tools (such as blogs, polls and forums) is another trend in online learning.” If your LMS does not contain links to Facebook or Twitter, it’s antiquated!

 Social Learning Tools Increase Engagement

4.) Mobile Access Impacts Engagement

“A combined 48 percent of respondents say they would be “more likely” to use an LMS with smartphone or tablet access.” Today more than ever, use of mobile and tablet devices is essential. The CEU360 LMS is streamed directly to tablets and smartphones so employees can take their learning on-the-go, and take even more control of their educational experience.

Mobile Access Impacts Engagement

Searching for a solution with all of these LMS features? Want an LMS provider who actually cares about engaging your employees?

You need more than a technology solution…. You need a professional alliance. That’s we’re we come in. We’d love to give you a tour of our LMS. (Sure, we could show you an impersonal YouTube video here, but that’s not our style.) We really do care about our clients; therefore, we want to make sure you get the attention and respect you deserve. We’d rather talk you through your LMS demo, answer any questions you may have, get to know your company’s training needs, and show you how we can customize an LMS solution that best suits your business. And, because we’re committed to saving money and time (as I’m sure you are too), we’d really like to do all of this at no cost to you and with little time commitment. Sound too good to be true? We’re just getting started…. wait until you see our robust LMS solution!

Isn’t it time you reap the benefits of a tailored LMS at your facility? And, wouldn’t you rather partner with a company you can trust? We care about your business – your missions, values, time, money, and you’re your greatest assets – your employees. Schedule your free LMS demo today and let us take care of all the little details (so you don’t have to!).
