One of the most frustrating aspects of implementing a new training program at any organization is having to chase up your manager to get approval for both budget and structure. Not anymore! Our latest update takes the pain out of talking to your boss.
“Hassle Your Boss” is a new feature in which a button in the administrator dashboard can be linked to directly contact your boss via email and text message, prompting them to approve your training plan.
Unfortunately, we aren’t going to be implementing this feature - which I’m sure is a relief to training executives everywhere.
However, we do firmly believe that training managers should be taking their budgets into their own hands and communicating with their managers.
We are here to help you take charge so that you can create an engaging and budget friendly program. You can find a number of article on the Go1 website to guide you through this processes including everything from how to prepare your learning and development budget, through to the top things you need to consider when taking your learning online.
Not to forget about talking to your boss, we can help with that too. As online learning becomes the most popular way to deliver workplace training, some employees might find that their managers need a bit of a “push” to test things out. Convincing your boss to invest in eLearning is a simple process if you do your homework and cover a few key areas, and we’ve put together a guide to make it a quick and easy process for L&D managers.
Finding good reasons to move your training online is the easy part! Research everywhere is pointing towards utilizing an online learning platform and creating a more personalized learning experience for your team. The cost savings when it comes to compliance are not just seen in your budget, but in reducing the risk against potential fines!
Being able to create a culture of learning with an on-demand training mentality will have a positive impact on not only your employees, but the growth of your business.
While the “Hassle your boss” button might be something that would make L&D managers very happy, the reality is that by taking your training budget into your own hands you can drive the direction of your program, and create higher quality training programs and are relevant to your team while sticking to your budget.
If you do have questions about aspects of preparing your training program, we’d love to hear from you so that we can help to provide you, and others in your position, with the resources that you need to take the next step!
