Attract talent and build a thriving workforce

Due to the tight labour market, many vacancies remain vacant. This forces employers to think about strengthening their employer brand. 
 
For talent, growth and development opportunities are of utmost importance. Organisations with inspiring education programs and good learning facilities are able to attract talent and manage to fill up to 10% more vacancies. 
 
Diverse learning demands make it a challenge for many organisations to select an education progam. Fragmentation across multiple platforms means that the learning offering isn’t accessible, and employees have no insight into budgets. Employees also need guidance when selecting training courses.

The most important barriers to a strong employer brand with learning:

  1. The courses on offer are not accessible.
  2. Employees have no insight into learning budgets.
  3. The learning offering does not meet the learning needs.
  4. Employees need guidance in the area of learning. 
By 2020, 35% of the world’s workforce will be millennials. Attracting this generation is a priority for HRM managers.

Offer a personal learning budget

Employees want autonomy in meeting their training needs. Empower employees to take charge over their own development with a personal learning budget. Employees look for and book training courses from a selection of training courses provided by external trainers. When they do they immediately see whether the cost of the training is within their budget. Keep control over training costs with a budget check. Empowering employees while strengthening  their feeling of autonomy will improve your employer brand.
