The LMS features you need for effective learning management

We often hear from L&D teams who are not yet leveraging LMS features that could transform the way they work and improve the learning experience for their employees. In this blog, we look at some LMS features you need for effective learning management.

If you currently have an LMS, how many of its various tools and features do you use on a regular basis?

If you’re looking to purchase an LMS, do you know which tools and features could make a real difference on your team’s day-to-day work?

An LMS is a big investment, and it needs to work for you. An LMS that doesn’t create admin efficiencies, or improve compliance and learner engagement will not deliver significant ROI for your organization.

From our experience advising many leading organizations, we’ve put together a list of ten LMS features that deliver great benefits. In the rest of this blog, we’re going to share a few of our favorites.

Learning management for financial services firms

Banks. Insurance firms. Asset management companies. Organizations operating in the sea of financial services face more regulations than perhaps any other industry, constantly having to navigate the rule-based, compliance-driven, ever-changing waters in which they operate. Particularly in today’s global environment, these institutions must be able to comply with new rules, prove compliance and train employees to comply – and all the while, maintain a competitive edge. Not always an easy task. But with proper learning management, it can be done.

Putting yourself in the shoes of a financial services learning officer, charged with training and certification, how would you succeed given such an immense responsibility? What would be on your list of main concerns? Your list would, most likely, look something like this:

  • Access to training data to track employee compliance for frequent audits
  • Rapid delivery of training on Standard Operating Procedures to meet changing regulations
  • Training to ensure compliance with local, state (if you’re in the U.S.), and global regulations such as anti-money laundering, Sarbanes-Oxley, anti-bribery and anti-corruption
  • Alignment of certifications and training of new employees gained through mergers and acquisitions
  • Reduced talent management administration costs to improve bottom-line results
