The challenge today is how to choose the best employee development software for HR managers. Since there are so many options available, the critical question is, which software will suit the interests of everyone in the organisation? This includes team members who want to see accurate results in terms of their skills, and the organisation, which wants a cost-effective, high ROI solution. Continue reading below to know how to choose the best employee development software.
1. Alignment with goals
Understanding organisational objectives are crucial to knowing which employee development software to pick. For instance, HR may want to know which skills are available at the organisation and how they can enhance them. Similarly, the C-suite may be planning to drive innovation and agility in the organisation. Thus, organisational goals may determine which software would suit the short-term as well as long-term goals of the organisation.
Features are another aspect of employee development software that organisations must consider. Integration with other tools and platforms, such as LinkedIn Learning and Coursera, is essential. In addition, the software should be able to integrate with external market data. As a result, your team members are more likely to stay up-to-date on future trends and workforce insights and be able to fill skill gaps. Furthermore, the software should provide people analytics for formulating strategies. As a final consideration, the software must have easy access via web and mobile for everyone, as well as dashboards and rich visualisations offering analytics that can easily translate.
3. Implementation time
Generally, good onboarding coaching should not take more than 5-7 days. In addition, ensure that support for technical implementation, user onboarding, and internal approvals of all onboarding materials and documents is received.
4. Data security
Data security policies should be applied to all materials and documents stored in the software. Therefore, organisations should verify the vendor’s data privacy certifications.
