Using your LMS to communicate purpose in the workplace

Organisations are learning the art of balancing a discontent, disengaged and recently, a remote workforce, with the need for employing highly skilled workers.

So, how can an organisation share its purpose and motivate staff to get onboard?  Online digital content and tools outlining the element of purpose in an organisation is the best way to communicate and demonstrate the human element of a workplace.

Creating content to communicate purpose in the workplace

How do you use your LMS to get employees motivated to see your vision for compliance and training? How do you make them want to believe in the organisation succeeding? Here are two key topics to include in your content to communicate your point across.

Emphasise the importance of employee roles 

To be fully engaged, employees need to find meaning in their daily work. However, this need is hardly met because organisations are not enabling employees to connect their role to the broader impact of their company’s products and services. In fact, most managers and supervisors never have conversations with their teams about why their works matters, a critical piece for employee engagement. A LMS which makes employee roles and learning pathways clear can go a long way in making employees feeling valued.

Highlight the Human Element of Work

Employees crave an understanding of how their work makes a difference in the lives of others, especially clients and colleagues. Talking about the work of an organisation through personal stories—such as customer and employee testimonials—will illustrate how employees are addressing real world issues that affect real people. By incorporating “human centric” stories in your content, employees can personally identify with the impact of their company’s products and services, see the difference their own work makes in people’s lives, and be more inspired at work.
