Before Easy LMS, Southland District Council delivered all their training in workshops or with one-on-one coaching sessions. It was expensive as it had additional costs of lost work time and travel expenses.
Health and safety training was mandatory, but there was little or no evidence of a change in behavior due to the training experience. So, they started looking for an online solution that would simplify delivery across multiple locations and allow customizations to make the learning content more engaging and fun.
From one-on-one coaching to an LMS
They chose Easy LMS over other, more complex systems because it was easy to administer and author the training. Also, the reports were simple but effective. Easy LMS enabled their employees to access training regardless of where they were, and the Academy gave every participant control over their own learning experience.
Teams are responding more positively to the training
Janet explained their experience with starting with Easy LMS: “Five months down the track with our Easy LMS e-learning, and we are noticing a marked difference in the way our people are working. Health and safety have become integral parts of what they do. People are more observant and more caring of each other."
It really is easy
She continued: "Teams respond more positively to the training and are competing to see which team gets finished first. Easy LMS has enabled us to bring health and safety alive in our organization. The service from Easy LMS has been outstanding, and we would recommend any organization considering implementing e-learning to use this system – it really is easy.”
Since implementing online training in their organization, the training completion rates improved significantly, and employees are proud of their achievements, displayed by their earned certificates. Now, each department displays its success on a certificate wall.
We are noticing a marked difference in the way our people are working
“Easy LMS has enabled Southland District Council to collect sound evidence of the learnings our people have gained as a result of the training. Not just through their exam results, but also through the workshop activities integrated into each courseware and in the e-learning feedback survey results that we collect for each new training course,” Janet concluded.
Terri Black, Health, Safety, and Wellbeing Advisor, also pointed out that Easy LMS allows for a “flexible, easy to follow learning that encourages team discussion and problem-solving.”
