Five essential features for an HRMS learning management module

An integrated HRMS learning management module will help you to improve productivity through the identification and delivery of relevant training and education. Will your learning management module help to make your employees successful? Here are five essential features that your learning management module should offer.

1. Learning portal

An HRMS learning portal gives an employee oversight and helps to organize learning activities. It provides an employee a view to easily see what training activities have been assigned and are outstanding. It should allow an employee to search for new training and review a completed transcript. It is helpful if an employee can access a career path to see future training requirements as a part of career development. A portal is the best way to make all of these common tasks accessible to employees.

2. Training recommendations based on role, position and stage in career

An integrated learning management module that taps into core HR job data can perform robust data mining. Are you able to build rules and set configuration options to directly assign the right training at the appropriate time? An integrated learning management module should be able to recognize that an employee was promoted in the past week and automatically allocate supervisor training to that new manager.

3. Ability to mass-assign training based on HRMS data elements

Learning management administration activities can be time-consuming, especially when administrators need to perform basic functions repeatedly. In certain industries such as government or healthcare the delivery of training such as updates to regulations can be critical. Your integrated learning management system makes it easy to find identifying pieces of data like job codes or positions to then assign training automatically.

4. Data mining functionality to match learning management profiles with open positions

Your best candidate for an open position may already be working for your organization. Skills, competencies and certifications captured in your learning management module can help you to narrow down a shortlist of internal candidates to approach. An integrated learning management module allows you to match requisitions and prioritize skills by giving them weightings. These advanced options are an improvement over manual reporting from multiple systems.

5. A good set of employee collaboration tools

An integrated learning management module is able to build on the entire core data set be it job, location or level to connect similar employees. The learning management module should provide a platform to enable a sharing of knowledge. The learning management module is an ideal way to promote mentoring relationships as it can host formal as well as informal knowledge sharing.
