Sustainable employability

5 reasons for an online academy and sustainable employees

As a Learning & Development specialist, you know better than anyone how crucial it is to support employees in their career development and sustainable employability. In this blog, we discuss five important reasons why an online academy is a valuable addition to your L&D strategy.

  1. Rapid access to knowledge

In an era of rapid technological advancements such as digitization and automation, it is essential for employees to have quick access to relevant knowledge and skills. An online academy allows you to reach the entire organization with just one click and make the necessary knowledge readily available for employees' sustainable employability. But an online academy offers many more benefits for sustainable employability, which you can discover in our whitepaper.

  1. Upskilling, reskilling, and the skillsgap

The importance of upskilling and reskilling has significantly increased in recent years. Upskilling refers to enhancing existing skills, while reskilling involves learning new skills. Both contribute to the career development of your employees. To remain relevant in a rapidly changing job market, employees need to continuously acquire new skills. Additionally, many organizations are facing a skillsgap, where the gap between the skills they possess and the skills required is growing larger. An online academy provides the opportunity to bridge this gap during career development and equip your organization with the necessary skills for employees' sustainable employability.

  1. Real-time insights always available

With an online academy, your employees' knowledge remains up-to-date, thereby enhancing their sustainable employability. As the online academy is digitally adaptable, your employees always have access to the latest developments and insights regarding sustainable employability. There's no longer a need to hire external experts since your online academy stays current with employees' sustainable employability.

Combining online and offline learning
  1. Reduced absenteeism and increased job satisfaction

An online academy contributes to reducing absenteeism and increasing job satisfaction. By emphasizing the importance of personal career development and providing employees with opportunities to keep learning, you create a stimulating work environment that fosters sustainable employability. Regardless of the subject matter you offer for learning—even if it's not directly related to a specific role, organization, or industry—having the opportunity to learn promotes job satisfaction, stimulates career development, and contributes to employees' sustainable employability.

  1. Paving the way for a long-lasting career

As people can work longer when they are vital, average career spans are increasing. This means that employees need to possess the right knowledge and skills throughout various stages of their career to perform optimally and remain sustainably employable.
