Always Near. While employees once congregated in one place, at one
time, sometimes for days on end and thousands of miles from their homes
to receive critical training, learning can now be as close as the nearest
computer or electronic device. Instead of disrupting their routines, sacrificing
time and productivity, employees can go about their daily business and
engage in training in their downtime.
Always On. Courses are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week,
52 weeks a year. Digital learning is "just in time" and on-demand,
delivering knowledge when and where the employee needs it, and as often
as they need it. This concept of "anywhere-anytime" learning
leads to greater student retention and satisfaction, in addition to significant
cost savings for employers. According to studies, retention of subject
matter can be 250% greater with e-learning versus the traditional classroom-based
Always Fresh. Materials can be updated easily and readily.
Cost Effective. With employee turnover near 120% in foodservice, companies
are paying millions to retrain their workforces. On average, an astonishing
40 cents of every dollar spent on corporate classroom learning is consumed
by travel costs. Distance learning is clearly the most cost effective
means to quickly address these inefficiencies. Studies show companies
experience an immediate 40-60% cost savings on technology-delivered courses,
compared to in-person, instructor-led courses.
Measurable. Companies will be able to measure and manage the "who,
when, how & why" of the training process. Digitally-delivered
training allows managers to track and manage training through digital
registration, electronic assignments and real-time reporting.
Topics include, but are not limited to:
product/ menu rollout
Development / Empowerment Training
and Running Shifts
and Maintenance of Equipment
For the first time in the history, employers must simultaneously manage
four distinct generations: Traditionalists born before 1943; Baby Boomers
born 1943-1960; Generation X born 1960-1980; and GenY born after 1980.
GenY differs dramatically from prior generations in its comfort with technology.
Born and raised with computers, electronic gaming, and cellular phones,
GenY will dominate tomorrow's workforce (estimated 18-22 million workers).
Are you prepared to train this digitally-fluent segment of your workforce?
All of our learning solutions address GenY in its native language.*
