As I write this, there are 100,656 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the world, 238 in the United States and 2 in Colorado, where Savvy is headquartered. (I highly recommend that you track this virus using the Johns Hopkins Center for Systems Science and Engineering dashboard, which is a continuously updated, highly visual, interactive map of the outbreak.)
Conferences are being canceled, travel is being postponed and employers are beginning to encourage or require their employees to work from home.
There is also a lot of confusion, partly due to the fact that this is uncharted territory. How do we protect ourselves and our families? How can our firms continue to serve clients properly through the uncertainty of travel plans, canceled meetings and working remotely? It’s also fair to ask, “Are we overreacting?” Surely, internet surfing is leading to an unnecessary level of hysteria, though we can all agree that it’s better to be prepared than not.
So, if you are discussing ways that your teams might work from home, there are critical ways that you can keep them productive. Thanks to modern technology, working remotely has never been easier.
The same is true of training, if you have a cloud-based learning management system (LMS).
I have reached out to several Savvy clients over the last couple of weeks to see how they are handling the COVID outbreak, and those that have the SavvyAcademy LMS told me they are asking employees to complete critical training requirements while working remotely. It is the perfect time for teams to catch up on their training goals, and even to launch new ones.
With a cloud-based LMS like SavvyAcademy, your employees can churn out their training requirements while sitting on their couches, at their kitchen tables, or even in bed!
The result? Your team could actually return to the office MORE productive and efficient than the day you sent them home.
If you’d like to launch training ASAP using an LMS, we can set you up today. (We can even set this LMS up for you while you work from home. No trips to the office necessary.) Just contact Savvy today and let’s chat about how you can train your employees during COVID-19.
