How E-Learning Can Help Support Your Staff During The Pandemic Keeping Your Staff Fully Trained With E-Learning Courses
By now UK businesses have adapted to allow them to continue running during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether that means more staff working from home, reduced numbers in the workplace or entire departments placed on furlough. The pandemic has caused huge disruption to businesses across the world. And Brexit has introduced even more complications for British businesses. Many are now finding that ‘normal’ operations are a distant memory. But, despite the disruptions and issues, you still need to ensure your team are fully trained to safely carry out their jobs. And, with our range of e-learning courses, it’s never been easier to do this.
Your staff may be out of sight, but their training needs shouldn’t be out of mind. With e-learning courses, your staff don’t need to be office based to complete their training. As long as they have access to the internet and a working computer, they can conduct job specific training. However, we don’t just offer job specific e-learning courses. We also offer a huge range of awareness e-learning courses for everything from health and safety, first aid, fire safety and more. In fact, with large numbers of the UK workforce on furlough, now is the perfect time to embrace e-learning to ensure that when they return to the office, you don’t need to waste time reskilling your staff.
The Ideal Solution During A Pandemic
If you aren’t already embracing it, e-learning offers the perfect pandemic training solution. As an employer, it enables you to continue managing the professional development of your staff. It also creates a natural reason for you to maintain contact with those employees who aren’t currently in the office. As an employee, it shows you that your employer is still thinking about you. It also shows that your employer still values your professional development. And, let’s face it, if your staff are on furlough it gives them something to do!
So, with so many e-learning courses available, what are the best options for your staff? The answer to that really depends on your business and their job roles. However, with our range of awareness courses, you should find the perfect courses(s) for your staff. But, with so many options available, where should you start?
Let’s start with the most obvious and pressing e-learning courses we have to offer. Before you even consider bringing your staff back into the office, it’s imperative that you have
COVID-19 training in place. With our COVID-19 e-learning courses, you can choose the perfect training solution for your staff and even have them fully COVID compliant before they return to the office!
Maintaining a COVID compliant workplace isn’t just going to be a flash in the pan requirement. COVID-19 is likely to be with us for some time yet. In fact, it could even play a part in reshaping how we manage workplaces and how we minimise the risks posed by workplace bugs and viruses. So developing a training or e-learning programme that improves COVID compliance will not only protect your staff during the pandemic. It could also play a big part in improving your handling of the seasonal viral outbreaks.
Mental Health Awareness Courses
COVID-19 has led to many employees working from home. This carries it’s own unique set of issues. Employees are now
feeling more isolated and alone and this is proving to have a negative effect on their mental health. But, with your staff working from home, are you doing enough to support your staff? What can you even do to help those who aren’t currently working in the office?
There is actually quite a bit you can do to
support your staff who are working from home. However, it’s not just about maintaining contact. It’s also about making sure to maintain the right kind of contact and support. And, unfortunately, not many people are trained to provide that kind of support. Luckily, the ELAS Group are here to help fix that. Our mental health awareness course provides businesses like yours with a cost effective way to ensure that you’re providing the right kind of mental health support. Health And Safety Courses
They may not be in the office, but you need to maintain their basic knowledge of health and safety. Luckily, there are a huge range of
health and safety awareness e-learning courses available. In fact, with your staff having likely spent little time in the office as of late, it might be the perfect time to ensure your staff are still aware of their health and safety responsibilities. In fact, with how you manage and maintain your workplace health and safety could play a huge part in the short and long term success of your business. After all, correct health and safety standards play a big part in COVID compliance workplaces.
Our health and safety e-learning courses aren’t just standard ‘awareness’ courses. They include some job specific courses including
Asbestos Awareness, Vibration Awareness and Working at Height. This enables you to ensure that when the time is right, your staff will still be able to carry out their roles competently. It also reduces the time required to retrain your staff on their return to work, regardless of how long they’ve been absent! What Other Courses Are Available?
We have many other e-learning awareness and job specific courses available. These cover a range of topics and, as with our other e-learning courses, these can be completed at home or in the workplace. In fact, they can be done anywhere as long as you have access to a computer and the internet.
