Our top tips for small businesses using Go1:

Choose your content

 A subscription to Go1 unlocks access to more than just compliance content for your business. Once you've managed the compliance content side of e-learning, encourage your staff to make the most of what else they can learn using Go1. All staff in your business with a Premium account can Explore and freely access the Premium library.  We have courses that can address common employee skills-gaps in Microsoft, or let your staff extend themselves by choosing to learn how to use Adobe Photoshop - the options are endless!

Connect to Go1

If you already have a HRIS, or user management application, connect your applications to save yourself time. This means you can control user accounts on one system, whilst keeping your Go1 learning management system up to date. We do support data-feeds from HR systems into Go1.

 Or if you are a Xero user, we have developed a user integration to push data from Xero into Go1. The Go1 and XERO integration is intuitive to use; with only a few clicks you can import your staff information (name and email) from Xero into the Go1 platform. This saves you the time of creating new users, and makes it easy to assign them training from the content marketplace.

Centralise your communication

Communication tools are important but often costly for small businesses. Go1 offers you another means to share your own business material with multiple employees. Go1 has the features to track informal knowledge sharing and general corporate information via content uploads in courses, so we suggest making Go1 a learning and information repository for your staff. Allow it to be accessible by all (or certain) staff based on the parameters you set in a group/or sharing to the whole organisation, making the social learning process more accesible in your organisation. We've found especially for regionally dispersed staff, having the ability to make a recording or notes available from a meeting, event or conference makes your jobs easier.
