Employee Training Automation
What is employee training automation and why do LMS matter?
Technology has transformed almost every aspect of business, making it faster, more efficient, and flexible. Learning Management Systems (LMS) can do the same for employee training. They're consistent, instant, engaging, and leave new and existing employees ready to succeed in their roles.
Employee training automation allows HR departments of any size or type to deliver, monitor, and guide new and existing employees through the training necessary to complete almost any task. The employee learns, but so do you!
With automated LMS and e-learning, you'll be able to gather feedback and identify areas that require more information or changes. You'll be able to take advantage of areas where employees thrive, make better use of their skills, and discover more about how your organization works on the ground. It's the smart way to develop unparalleled human capital.
What are the benefits of automated employee training?
By using LMS and Robotic Process Automation (RPA) you can replace the many time—consuming, repetitive tasks related to corporate training. The HR manager can deliver training content in surveys, a webinar, quizzes, and even provide a first look at company culture without taking up a large portion of their valuable time. They enhance the learning process, too, since online training allows each person to learn at their own pace.
Employee training automation eliminates duplication, prevents errors, and reduces the time and money involved in the development and training of employees.
Identify areas of confusion, simplify processes, and adjust training activities to create better training systems. Employee training automation also allows you to survey users and collect feedback throughout the training process and beyond. You'll be able to address problems before they become a problem.
Information created for automated employee training programs can be made instantly accessible throughout the company to all employees. And if you integrate data collection with the information delivery process, you can collect and update HR documents in real time.
While many people see bots as tools that reduce engagement, that couldn't be further from the truth.These can trigger any number of events, including meetings or check-ins when they're needed instead of just randomly scheduling them throughout the year. Issues are then dealt with before they become significant enough for the employee to leave.
The best onboarding process involves a focus on connectivity between individuals and the company as well as helping them understand how their skill set maps onto their new role. This requires intelligent training management. When new hires feel knowledgeable, prepared, welcomed, and like they belong, they're more likely to stay loyal.
Start by building a simple bot and automating one task. Then, scale it up and add more bots with minimal disruption to the company. You can adjust and deploy them at any time. And when your organization grows or expands, your automation programs will grow and change with you. It's an affordable way to benefit from a Digital Workforce.

Who benefits from automated employee training?
The advantages and benefits of automated employee training programs are noticeable throughout the organization and beyond. Employees will start new positions feeling better prepared and ready to take on complex or challenging tasks.
Automated employee training materials allow employees to access information and tools at the precise moment they need them. Chatbots and other AI technology can be incorporated into workflows to answer questions as they come up and act as an interactive guide to teach them new skills.
Low upfront costs are just one of the small benefits of automated employee training courses. Automation Anywhere's bots integrates seamlessly with all the software and websites you already use. And because they don't require extensive coding expertise, you can get started right away.
Processes can change due to updates in the business, rules, or regulations, you simply need to update the materials in one location and roll them out. Then, use logs and records to help identify who accessed the materials and when, so you can ensure everyone is updated on the changes.
Well-trained employees are better able to provide just that. And the less time employees spend looking for information, the more time they can spend with customers, reducing the number of customers left waiting on hold. That's just good business.
