Digital transformation, advances in technology and changes of working practices are all positive and necessary steps for businesses to take if they are to survive and thrive, but too often a company fails to consider the impact on their staff whilst they are implementing that new technology.
IT budgets are being spent on advances in cloud technology, new software and new hardware to make business processes run more efficiently. Automation, reporting, compliance are all powerful tools. But the way to get the most out of these advances and improvements is to also upgrade the skills and knowledge of the people who manage, configure and use the technology on a daily basis. OfficeLabs knows that the way to really get the most from any IT investment is to also invest in training for your people.
At OfficeLabs, our ethos is to deliver a first-class experience in modern technology, implementing changes to working practices or workflow and automation to increase productivity and consistency. All of this is only part of the task, however. Whether it’s Microsoft SharePoint training or Microsoft Office 365 training, knowledge transfer and building on the skills of your employees is required to complete the project. Rather than become reliant on us for every question once your roll-out is completed, we want you to get the most out of your investment and really see the real-time benefits.
Continual upgrading of your employees’ skills means an improved output, better results and a thriving business. Staff feel more valued if you commit to invest in their development, and in return they are better engaged and feel part of your company’s mission and vision. Employee turnover is reduced, and people want to stay with you as they feel needed — they know that they are a part of something bigger than “just another job”.
OfficeLabs helps to upgrade your staff
We run courses that complement where you currently are as a business, and where you intend to be. We cover everything from administrator training in readiness for an Office 365 and Azure project, to specific product training for Gimmal’s record management software and the standard Microsoft Office suite.
After delivering a Power BI project to improve a department’s reporting capabilities, for example, OfficeLabs would prepare a training course that includes familiarisation with the Power BI suite and specific knowledge of how to support and maintain the solution we had provided. This gives staff the confidence to use the functionality and get the most from the reports, as well as the potential to expand and build on what we had originally delivered.
Our aim is for all of our projects to positively change the way a business functions and make people’s day a little easier (and where possible, a lot easier). Focusing on your staff is a crucial part of doing just that.
Formats that work for your type of business
We can, and do, deliver traditional class-based training, but more often shorter, remote courses delivered by webinar are meeting the training needs of users in particular. They keep costs lower, while incentivising staff to attend by keeping tuition sessions short, to the point, but still comprehensive and complete.
OfficeLabs prides itself on making sure that every course you complete and every certification you achieve benefits both your staff and your company. They are the foundation of every business, the people that operate the software and hardware that you use to grow, and they keep the lights on each day. We provide training that keeps employees up-to-date with the latest technologies, and in turn, keeps businesses competitive while boosting their bottom line.
Whether you are looking for Microsoft Power BI training, Microsoft Teams training, or software development training, we offer state-of-the-art solutions which fit your needs and budget, helping to upgrade your people as you transform their careers — and your business. Your employees are the people who develop programs, optimise your infrastructure, and create solutions for the biggest problems you’re likely to face. An investment in your staff is an investment in your business, and the returns are often incalculable. OfficeLabs will help you focus your efforts, target the right training at the right people, and provide a comprehensive plan to help you make the most of your new implementation.
These are just some of the benefits OfficeLabs can offer your company. When you book an appointment with an OfficeLabs training consultant, they will talk to you in depth about your business needs, and how best to use our training services. Remember, OfficeLabs offer more than training services, this is just one area of expertise — OfficeLabs will ensure you get the most out of all of your business applications. Making sure your business runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible is why OfficeLabs has been chosen by both FTSE 250 companies and huge public sector bodies, and our no-jargon approach will let you talk to us with confidence about your requirements.
