There is a BIG difference between Learning & Development being on the C-Level Executive agenda and them visibly championing L&D.
The major barrier to executive level championing is time, you need to make it quick and easy for them to engage with the learning network.
Suppose you have 2 children who both have music lessons at school. One wants to play and enjoys practicing; the other is only playing an instrument because you have said they have to.
Which child is going to practice and improve the quickest?
It is all very good giving someone knowledge but it isn’t very effective unless they can share it.
The easier you make it for people to share thoughts and new skills, the sooner you see the benefits.
This pillar is intrinsically linked to pillar 1, you can’t expect to have executive level champions if you aren’t prepared to measure the success of your L&D initiatives against key company KPI’s.
If you don’t show you are working towards a common goal, you will never get anywhere.
We wanted to provide Safegaurding training to our network of teachers and to be alerted when that training should be refreshed. The feedback from our teachers has been tremedously positive, especially around the way the courses were broken down into small sessions and delivered via our app, making it easy to learn and complete. The whole process is automated for us now, we have teachers completing their safegaurding training and taking their certificates into schools without us asking now!

Before eLamb we didn’t have an LMS across our business. I chose eLamb because I wanted an easy to use LMS that both my staff and I would be able to use daily. What I liked about eLamb was Mark and the team. Always at the end of the phone and willing to talk through ideas to develop the system and answer questions that I had. It’s the personal touch that makes the difference with eLamb compared to other big LMS providers. eLamb develop the system constantly, they clearly listen to feedback from their clients to help keep pace with Learning & Development needs. If an LMS is new to your business I’d recommend starting with them.

As we didn't have out own Learning & Development manager, I was concerned the process of creating our own bespoke online training would add to my workload. However eLamb project managed the creation so well, from design to delivery, it just felt like a really easy process
