Investing in staff education

Investing in staff capability is a necessary and vital part of employee satisfaction and retention.  An investment in workplace education is one way you can ensure your employees are challenged, valued and given the skills they need to achieve successful project and organisational outcomes.

But as an employer, how do you know your investment is being looked after? At eCampus NZ we use innovative analytics and tracking systems to ensure e-learners are making the most of their study opportunities.

All eCampus NZ student progress is tracked through our interactive system – contributing to higher success rates. We want all our students to do well, but some students need a little more support than others. When one of our e-learners is struggling or falling behind, our facilitators are alerted to their slow progress and make it a priority to help the student get their study back on track.

Through our smart analytics, we monitor when and how our students are studying. This means you can be assured that your employee is being supported through their study journey – ensuring a greater chance of success. For example, through our analytics we have discovered that at around 6/7pm in the evening we get a spike of student activity. Our facilitators make sure they are logged on at this time to respond and support students in their study.

For some larger businesses – regular reporting on how employees are progressing with their study is a requirement.  A feature of eCampus NZ is that regular reporting on employee progress can be arranged. This means, with employee consent, you can see how well a student is performing, how they are fitting in study around work commitments and most importantly, how you as an employer can support them to achieve their goals.

We understand that work commitments change and study sometimes has to take a backseat. That’s why at eCampus NZ all our courses are flexible and can be paused or stopped should an important project need to take priority. As an employer this means you can relax in the knowledge that though employees will need to be supported through their education – it doesn’t take precedence over work commitments.
