What value is delivered?

Visier People Learning and Development is a collection of application elements that are designed to solve your most pervasive and compelling L&D related problems. The unique problems solved by Visier People Learning and Development are listed below:

  • Learning Operations: Provides a comprehensive overview of all learning activities within your organization. This enables the organization to gain a clear understanding of the type and volume of learning that is taking place, as well as the participation and progression through the learning activities.

    Why is it important? Analyzing learning operations data can help organizations improve their employee development programs, increase employee engagement and retention, and drive overall business performance.

  • Learning Impact: Helps you understand the impact of learning on employees and the business, which helps organizations set a baseline, assess the effectiveness of their learning programs, reevaluate and better align their overall L&D strategies to their company objectives.

    Why is it important? By analyzing data related to learning impacts, such as employee performance, employee engagement, and business outcomes, you can determine whether the organization's learning programs are achieving their desired objectives.

  • Learning Engagement: Provides a comprehensive understanding of participation rate, completion rate, time spent in learning, and the results of learning evaluations. This enables organizations to assess their course offerings, ensuring that the type, content, and delivery meet employee expectations and are worth the investment.

    Note: You can gain these valuable insights for any specific program you have developed (e.g., new hires, leadership, sales).

    Why is it important? Looking at learning engagement is critical as it helps organizations ensure that their L&D programs are effective, engaging, and contributing to employee satisfaction and retention.

  • Training Equity: Provides a comprehensive overview of participation distribution and opportunity from a demographic perspective. It enables organizations to ensure fairness and equity in training course access and consumption.

    Why is it important? By ensuring that training opportunities are accessible to all employees, organizations can reduce the risk of discrimination and legal liability. This can help to protect the organization from lawsuits and other legal actions that may arise from perceived inequities in training opportunities.

  • Compliance Learning: Helps you understand who completed compliance training, what the overall completion rate is, the status of each course, and the time spent on each training. This information can help monitor the progress of compliance-focused training content, identify who is not yet compliant, and develop targeted interventions to address the issues.

    Why is it important? Compliance learning helps ensure that employees understand the rules and regulations that apply to their job and their industry, which can help prevent legal and ethical violations.

  • Leadership Development: Provides a comprehensive understanding of participation rate, progress, providers, and consumed content that can be grouped and filtered by any leader's demographics or work attributes. This data can be analyzed in association with other indicators such as engagement, retention, and performance to assess the impact of their leadership development efforts on both individual leaders and the organization as a whole.

    Why is it important? These insights can enable organizations to make data-driven decisions about leadership development, which can ultimately help build strong leaders, improve organizational performance, facilitate succession planning, and attract and retain top talent.
