How to Select the Right Training Software for Your Company


Conducting employee training is crucial for any organization. New employees must be trained on unfamiliar processes and procedures, while all employees must stay up to date.

Any corporate trainer can tell you long, monotonous presentations are out and online training is in.

So, how do you decide which training software is right for your team? Here, we will highlight what you should consider before making this important investment.

Different types of training to consider

Organizations need different types of training, and ideal training platforms cover these topics easily.


As the first interaction with an organization, new hires will learn about organizational structure, company policies and administrative procedures, as well as review and complete required paperwork for the human resources department.


Orientation includes onboarding, while training focuses on the employee’s specific role. Plugging into software and platforms, understanding personal and departmental goals, and learning technical aspects of the job happen during onboarding.

Soft skills

Technological and artificial intelligence advancements have affected many jobs. Soft skills are important, as these cannot be automated. Skills such as communication and time management are universal and help boost performance.


Every employee in any industry should receive safety training. From basic first aid and workplace evacuation plans to personal protective equipment and working with hazardous materials, employers should always make safety a priority.
