Whitepaper showcases how technology impacts profitability
A new whitepaper from language training provider Speexx examining current e-learning and talent management trends offers practical advice for reaping the full benefits of technology.
The Speexx report analyses five core elements: What organisations currently gain from e-learning, the lack of global e-enablement, moving towards the cloud, the mobile and social learning take up and the link between capability development and communication.
Based on findings from the Speexx Exchange 2012-13 Survey, which involved 230 organisations, the whitepaper highlights the trends shaping the implementation of learning technologies in the workplace and the impact they are likely to have on business efficiency, profitability and growth.
According to Speexx, organisations using a cloud-based LMS are paving the way to meet the requirements of the global market in terms of communication, leadership and expansion. Although 80 percent of organisations aim to use cloud-based LMS by 2015, only 18 percent have actually moved towards the cloud so far. Another key finding highlights that, while 63 per cent of organisations already have a BYOD policy in the workplace, less than a third of these actively use mobile technology for learning purposes. This highlights a signficant gap between the opportunities offered by mobile and its actual usage.
Armin Hopp, founder and president of Speexx, said: "The reality is that at this rate, it will not be feasible for the majority who are still operating in local silos to reach their 2015 target in time - some organisations have up to forty different structures within one company.
"The pressure is clearly on businesses to find new and innovative ways to work smarter, upskill staff and gain a competitive edge in the global market. This leads to the ability to instil a coporate culture of open communication and the ability to embrace new technologies."
