As technology advances and reporting and compliance tracking become more common requirements, data becomes more available. This makes the prevalence of learning data a powerful tool to be leveraged. With the use of common tools (HR information system, Relias LMS, and MS Excel), we have made intentional use of the data we have to study our learning environment and build the best possible training program within the confines of a nonprofit budget.
We use HR information system data to show the need for training infrastructure, including additional funding and staffing. We use training compliance data to justify the initial purchase and continued need for the Relias LMS. We use training completion data to target our limited department efforts, including how and when will provide training events. As a result, we operate a department with less than half of the industry standard FTE and less than a third of the budget at double the efficiency of a fully staffed and funded department. We have also begun utilizing data to better understand the financial costs and benefits of the training program to better inform the agency’s budgeting process and financial forecasting. Recognizing the power of learning data, what tools do you have, and what simple steps can you take to improve your own compliance and performance?
