Why use eLearning to train employees in Diversity & Inclusion?

Time
Diversity & Inclusion eLearning delivers compliance training faster than classroom-based methods. Today’s workforce like bite-sized information delivered at a time that suits them. eLearning training is interactive and available at any time.  Employees are not stuck with a fixed schedule. Their training is delivered on their schedule, at their own pace

Ease of administration
Legal-Island take the stress out of administration.  We can provide all members of staff with access details and regular emails can be sent to those who have not yet completed.

Record
Using eLearning and a Learning Management System will reduce the length of time spent on record keeping. A designated staff member can access a secure LMS to check who has completed the training, passed their assessment and download a record for audit purposes.

Budget
Companies incur significant costs when delivering face to face compliance training. Typically, money is spent on a trainer, training facilities, time spent out of the office, catering, mileage, training materials etc. eLearning eliminates these costs and can significantly stretch a training budget and reduce your organisation's carbon footprint.

Content
Diversity & Inclusione Learning training provides standardised, consistent content every time to an entire company. Every person can be reached with the same content, regardless of his or her location. This makes eLearning the most reliable for communicating key issues and increasing employee awareness of unconscious bias, harassment and the protected characteristics of discrimination

An end of course assessment is included to ensure your workforce have understood key components of the training including: The protected characteristics of discrimination, unconscious bias, types of harassment including sexual harassment and stereotyping.
