Company culture—it’s a big deal these days. From free coffee to giant slides or in-office yoga and Crossfit, companies are dedicated to transforming the workplace experience. Many organizations seem to think they need to constantly tout their awesome company culture on Facebook or Instagram in order to attract and retain top talent.

But there’s an easier way to create a good company culture without having to install a pool or a living plant wall—the newest trend! Disclaimer: I really love living walls.


eLearning can help you nurture your desired company culture.


Delivering the right soft skills, HR, and compliance training is a step toward building a positive work environment based on respect and dignity. With customizable training covering topics including anti-harassment, conflict resolution, communicating effectively, and more, the eLearning Brothers Customizable Courseware library offers just what you need to teach your team the values you want your organization to display.


Other types of eLearning, like interactive games, often can be tied to publicly viewable leaderboards. You might be surprised at the camaraderie developed by your employees as they engage in a little friendly competition. Plus, engagement with other employees fosters collaboration and a close-knit team culture. Training games also reinforce educational material, assess knowledge retention, measure overall teaching effectiveness, and improve learning outcomes.


eLearning can also help you improve employee retention.


The cost to replace a single employee is generally estimated at 33-100% of the annual salary for that position, and an average of $15,000 per employee.


That’s why training is more important than ever for retention . Employees who are focused on a development path are less likely to leave at the first offer that comes along. Showing your commitment to your employees increases their commitment to you.


eLearning is a cost-effective way to deliver training. There’s no travel required, no instructor to pay. Further, bite-size microlearning has become more prevalent, making it easier to fit training into an employee’s schedule and provide on-the-job support when needed.


Employees who don’t receive good onboarding or job performance training often feel frustrated or stuck. Those are the employees who start looking for new positions. But a well-trained employee aided by performance support tools feels empowered to succeed and knows their impact on the company. Those are the employees who stay—and the ones who help increase your bottom-line! They’re also generally more fun to be around, causing a positive ripple effect on the rest of your employees’ attitudes about work.
