The benefits of Boots e-learning include that training is consistent, reliable, quickly accessible, efficiently delivered and high-quality at a cheaper cost, according to Towards Maturity. Other benefits are that it allows management to more quickly and accurately assess the return on Learning and Development investment and helps to coordinate employee training and learning with organizational values and goals.
From the Boots e-learning launch date of February 2007 to June 2012, the company had seen 7,124,324 training modules accessed throughout its stores, states Towards Maturity. Two in-house developers produce 60 unique high-quality modules each year, which makes the program a very cost-effective and valuable investment. The Log-on and Learn program benefits the organization by increasing customer and employee satisfaction, improving business performance and increasing sales.
Additionally, notes Towards Maturity, users of e-learning are enthusiastic about the program and regularly rate new modules as five out of five stars, demand new content and leave positive comments on the learning management system. When workers are polled on whether they have the training they need to perform a great job, the top 10 percent of stores with the highest number of e-learning users show an increase of five percentage points compared to the average score for this metric.
