Reduced Costs

The affordable, quality way to train staff

online training

Lower travel, backfill, and overtime expenses

Reduce the amount of time your remote staff needs to travel for on-site training. Eliminate the need to backfill shifts and reduce overtime pay.

No more “sunk” costs- save money by paying by “seat”

With onsite training, if an employee leaves the organization, you have to pay again for the next employee to go through the training. These costs can be significant, given the high turnover most IDD organizations face.

With Relias, you pay by the “seat”. If an employee leaves the organization, the new employee is trained at no extra cost.

Ensure Consistency of Training

Ensure core policies and training are delivered to a certain standard, using consistent online training. Increase staff competency and compliance with processes and procedures, directly impacting the quality of service provided.

Better Tracking and Reporting

Easily manage tracking and reporting for compliance requirements

Tracking

Know at all times where your organization stands, with regards to training-related compliance. Produce reports easily and immediately for funding sources and accrediting bodies. Track:

  • Mandatory courses
  • Licenses and certifications (including CPR, first aid status, etc.).
  • Live, on-site training events
  • Custom material (such as Policies and Procedures)

Reduce time spent tracking and reporting by 75%. Automate the manual tasks associated with tracking trainee compliance, including capturing course assignment details and status.

Automated notifications. Managers and employees receive automated notifications indicating upcoming (or past-due!) deadlines. Let managers do their jobs and let the system manage compliance!
