3 Ways to Ensure that Your L&D Data Are Used to Support Your Company's Goals
July 14, 2022

L&D —learning and development — helps to provide employees with the skills and knowledge necessary to grow both themselves and the company. As human capital is the most valuable asset for any company, prioritizing this investment makes you more productive, competitive, and engaged.  

With that, L&D teams must ensure they’re utilizing data to assess outcomes, adapt programs, and chart strategy. Here’s what you should keep in mind.  

1. Speed matters when it comes to data

When it comes to making crucial business decisions, having the right data is paramount. In fact, 91 percent of companies say that data-driven decision-making is important to the growth of their business [1]. Though SaaS products vary in their core features and audience, they all gather useful data. Having access to learning and development data can help you make high-level strategic decisions for your company. Here are three areas where L&D can benefit from data-driven decisions.

  • Data that shows the necessary skills your employees must develop so you determine what skills to target and how to target them 
  • Data that provides the number of active users and new adopters so you can understand the program’s health  
  • Data that shows you how your current marketing strategies are working and how to improve in the future 

Having this information available at your fingertips can make or break your ability to make informed decisions. Maximize the learning at your organization with data from a SaaS product! 

2. Remain competitive by delivering on your learning

Your learning program should deliver exactly what your organization requires. It’s 2022, and over half of HR leaders plan to provide their employees with upskilling (59 percent) and reskilling (55 percent) training this year. Since the pandemic, L&D budgets have increased for 57 percent of organizations because companies are seeing a shortage of in-demand skills [2].  

By using the right SaaS web application, you can not only provide digital learning opportunities to your employees, but you can also customize that experience to their needs based on your learning and development data. Remaining competitive in your field means not being restricted to standardized programs that aren’t relevant to your or your employees.

3. Prioritize ease of use

Research shows that user interface and interaction design significantly impact how well users learn [3]. For Amesite, that’s a direct correlation between how we design our SaaS application and the data we collect to understand what our learners need. Data should drive the creation of your application, and then your team should make utilization simple and straightforward for your end-user.  

Remember: if it isn’t easy to use, it won’t be used at all. A design that’s intuitive for users is of the utmost priority. Investing in a clean interface that displays data in an accessible manner provides a huge ROI — somewhere between $2 to $100 [4]. Why not spend on something that’s guaranteed to double your initial investment?
