Digital transformation, advances in technology and changes of working practices are all positive and necessary steps for businesses to take if they are to thrive, but you also need to consider the impact on your staff whilst you 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. Better information management, automation, collaboration, and reporting are all great solutions but to get the most out of these advances and improvements you 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.
At OfficeLabs, our ethos is to deliver a first-class experience in modern work 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 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 a Microsoft 365 and Azure project, to specific product training for Gimmal’s record management software and Adobe Document Cloud.
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.
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 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 organisation. 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 organisation runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible is why OfficeLabs has been chosen by both FTSE 250 companies and public sector bodies, and our no-jargon approach will let you talk to us with confidence about your requirements.
