Transform Employee Performance with ADP® and Absorb LMS

SHARE

There's an undeniable connection between learning and performance. Simply put, when we learn how to do things better, we typically perform better. In the workplace, the right learning management system (LMS) can enable leaders to tie performance feedback directly into training—in other words, provide employees with actionable learning opportunities to improve their performance.

 

The challenge with performance reviews? Observable success takes time to surface and can sometimes be hard to measure—especially if you don't have the right tools at hand. That's where the ADP Connector for Absorb LMS® comes in. It saves your business time and money by automating time consuming tasks like data entry, record keeping and training enrollment; and compiles all performance metrics in one place. Read on to find out how this powerful combination boosts performance and ignites growth at every level.

Employees are Hungry for Feedback

Investing in a culture of learning is the first step toward fueling your employees' relentless hunger for growth. The Absorb LMS integration with ADP® makes it easy to infuse learning into your performance management strategy. And if the stats below are any indication—feedback is in high demand.

Learning Steers Performance, and Vice Versa

Business executives agree that learning is a critical ingredient in performance building. It makes sense that your learning program serves your organization's performance needs, today and in the future. But how do you measure performance in your organization—and what does peak performance look like? 

With Absorb LMS, you can make role expectations clear while ensuring employees can "level up." Absorb LMS offers built-in reporting tools that make learning completely trackable—from who's completed their training, to what courses aren't being visited enough. It also incorporates engagement tools, like badges and leaderboards, that keep people motivated and inspired to climb the ranks.

All these powerful features can be incorporated into your performance management strategy—making it easier to identify employee strengths and areas for improvement.

Align Training with Employees' Goals

Are your employees passionate about professional development? According to McKinsey, employees who set their own goals are more committed to achieving them. When people are intrinsically driven, it's easier for them to seek opportunities to improve skills or learn new ones.

Absorb LMS fosters a culture of "learning for growth" in many ways. For one, it offers the ability to build distinct learning paths, ensuring everyone is working toward their unique goals. Employees benefit from artificial intelligence features like Intelligent Recommendations, which finds relevant courses for learners based on content they've already viewed.

Set Employees Up for Succession

Your employees take feedback to heart; they want to know how to grow their skills and further their own careers. Equip your people so that when top performers leave your organization, you can fill those roles with capable replacements as soon as possible.

The ADP Connector for Absorb LMS helps track who's performing above the rest, who's been trained and therefore, who's ready to take over vacant positions. It automatically pulls the performance data you need, freeing up guesswork by HR and managers and ensuring the right person is promoted.
