At ALESYS we believe that Outsourcing is a way for an organization to gain and/or release competencies as dictated by the needs of their business. Outsourcing enables you to speed up or slow down as the pace of your business dictates, but without carrying all the overhead. As a leader in your organization’s training function, you need to be sure all the training you offer is meeting the learning needs of your organization in terms of relevance of content to current strategic business objectives of your organization, as well as timeliness, quality, and engagement of Learners. We see outsourcing as a sure way to help you increase the accountability and quality of your training function.
There are many reasons to outsource training that range from access to different skill sets when needed, to "I’m tired of dealing with turnover issues on my team." Read below what some of our customers have said about Why Outsource Training?
"Our senior management team has told us they expect us to cut at least 15% of our training costs next year. The only logical way we can do that is to outsource more of our design and development and our delivery functions to reduce our fixed costs. That will enable us to convert those costs into variable costs which they said would benefit our tax burden."
"We need to augment our staff to produce more meaningful training opportunities to satisfy the demands of our business units. But we have not been allowed to add management positions or more FTEs! We have not been happy with the quality of work and accountability that we have been getting with independent contractors, but we need to get more of the requested training out there more quickly. We need access to real workplace training expertise!"
"It seems to take forever for us to get something finished; we need agility, creativity, and flexibility, and we just don’t have this on our current IDD teams."
"It seems that each employee in our design and development department really only works a few hours a day at their real job. The rest of their time is spent in endless meetings, etc. Our current approach is just not productive for our organization anymore."
"We need access to higher-quality training that really prepares our people to perform to our ever-increasing expectations. Most of our training is delivered through PowerPoint slides, even as we try the virtual learning environment. No wonder our people are not performing well!"
"Our training design and delivery skill sets need to be updated due to our very volatile business environment."
So if you’re ready to show the senior management of your organization that you have a solid plan to solve the increasing demands from business units for training that truly improves work performance quickly, talk with our seasoned professionals at ALESYS. Your senior management team will greatly value your commitment to improving the business, not just putting people through training that is not making the difference in performance that it should. Rethink how you can better leverage the budget you have to get more accomplished at a higher level of quality and productivity.
Some of the outcomes of outsourcing your training to ALESYS are that you and your organization’s business managers will come to view training as a critical business service in support of their strategic business objectives, as opposed to training as a function to be endured. Training will be elevated to its rightful place as a strategic business tool to enable the achievement of organizational objectives, because that is how we will lead and manage it for you. Your management team will stop viewing you as being in the "weeds" concerned about metrics such as staff turnover, number of people your function has touched, and "why is it taking so long for this course to get finished," etc. Instead they will value your role in raising the bar significantly at a critical time in your organization’s evolution. And as usually happens with our Customers, you’ll be promoted because of your vision and commitment to the success of your organization!
If this piques your interest, then we would like to discuss solutions further with you and begin a successful business partnership built around our mutual passion for effective training leading to measurable performance improvements.
