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 can lead 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 approach.
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.

WHY GENERATIONAL LEARNING?
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.*
