Engaging The Virtual Workforce With Online Training

November 2, 2020
There is no doubt that remote workers are driving the need to rethink employee benefits. Since the onset of COVID-19, employees from various types of sectors have been forced to work from home. As of September 2020, 24% of UK workers were working remotely. Fortunately, technology has accelerated to the point where remote working has become realistic for a wide range of jobs. Therefore, businesses are reconsidering the range of benefits they can offer to accommodate remote workers and ensure productivity and loyalty among their employees.

Before the pandemic, employees valued common office benefits such as flexitime and remote work opportunities, with 84% of UK businesses using flexible workplace policies to attract and retain top talent. Now, 91% of the UK workforce have stated they are willing to work from home after the pandemic ends, meaning businesses are now planning more remote work for the foreseeable future. We understand this will change how businesses operate, and therefore have enhanced our employment package to meet the needs of the remote workplace. Reflecting on the dramatic shift to work-from-home within the recruitment sector, David Callaghan believes “Benefits should be more inclusive, relevant, and of use to employees, regardless of their location. Employees have expectations about the post-pandemic workplace, and the benefits that they value have evolved.”

Taking action since day one in response to Coronavirus, Centralus’s benefits and employee support services have had record engagement rates, from the dedicated COVID-19 portal to our online medical services and confidential helpline. As a result of the pandemic, work benefits related to wellness and technology have come to the fore. Centralus believe that remote working experience can also become more beneficial, productive, and enjoyable for staff through online learning. The demand is there, with 74% of employees saying that they want to learn during spare time at work, and 25% of Gen Z and Millennials who say learning is the number one thing that makes them
happy at work.

Virtual learning programs were already on the rise before the pandemic. However, their significance is more prominent now as they are used as a business tool to tackle the issue of lapses in productivity and engaging the remote workforce. Better yet, online learning can create more satisfied and efficient employees. Good learning sessions begin with a good participant experience. With over 45 courses for personal and professional learning and development, our user-friendly online training platform is accessible through the Centralus benefits platform, via any mobile and desktop device. This invaluable resource can help your employees further their careers and learn at their own pace through a variety of on-demand topics, lessons, and course content.

Investing in learning and growth opportunities for your employees is a smart business move. According to David Callaghan, “Businesses can’t afford to put capability building on hold. The moment belongs to virtual learning, where individuals, team, or company-wide transformation can be achieved through professional learning and development, with employee safety assured.”

Centralus has the key benefits that remote employees need to succeed within our suite of targeted services that provide, employee engagement, payroll solutions, workplace pensions, and HR legal support to help businesses achieve their goals.
