Our world has become increasingly digital, allowing greater access to technology and therefore greater interest in online products and services. This has fuelled the spread of online gambling, allowing iGaming products to diversify and spread to new verticals, accompanied by new compliance requirements.
It can be daunting to address the compliance challenges of multiple markets and products, staff need to be trained on a wide variety of subjects, and they need to be able to complete their training quickly and effectively.
What are the advantages?
This is where an online training provider comes in. iGaming Academy provides a diverse range of compliance and on-the-job training courses, off-the-shelf or customisable, aiding companies in their training deliverables whilst minimising in-house expense.
Online training boasts another significant advantage: accessibility. Employees can easily access training anytime anywhere and complete courses at their own pace. Such convenience also allows learners to refresh on compliance minutia at a moments notice, enhancing information retention and ensuring they can complete their duties efficiently.
Providing employees with continuous education has also been shown to aid not only information retention but also job retention too. Staff look for opportunities with the ability to learn beyond merely transactional requirements to enhance their career prospects. The millennial generation in particular is open to training as a means to enhance career progression, with up to 76% seeing learning as key to career development and 53% disappointed by a lack of personal development training when starting a new job.
What do the stats say?
Statistics provided by Elearning Industry show the value of training from the employee’s perspective:
- 89% of employees want training available anywhere and anytime.
- 80% of workers believe regular and frequent training is more important than formal workplace training.
- 76% of employees believe their companies should provide more digital skills training while only 44% said their employers currently do so.
- 1 in 3 employees says their organisation’s training is out-of-date.
As we can see there is a certain level of expectation that employers should look to fulfil. Employees who are provided training in their workplace value the opportunity, therefore it is no surprise that they are more likely to stay and grow within companies that invest in their continued education and development.
Since the start of the pandemic, it has become evident that organisations are focusing more on online employee training and development. This requires an easy to use Learning Management System (LMS), with the ability to manage, document, track, report and automate educational content.
