Corporate Employee Training Center Now Available From EBSCO
EBSCO Publishing has expanded its corporate learning offerings to include a ready to use, web-based training center. EBSCO and Business & Legal Resources (BLR) have signed an agreement enabling corporations and government agencies to subscribe to BLR’s Employee Training Center through EBSCO.
Many organizations are responsible for training programs mandated by human resources requirements, safety codes, and state and federal regulations. However, instituting these rules or having access to subject-matter experts on topics for which they need to train is difficult. The Employee Training Center can assist organizations with their compliance and training needs by providing a web-based training platform and a source of professionally developed training courses for their workforce.
BLR’s Employee Training Center offers continuously updated, customizable courses in nine specific areas: Customer Service, Environmental Compliance, Human Resources, Lab Safety, Leadership for Employees, Leadership for Managers & Supervisors, Wellness, Workplace Safety and California Sexual Harassment which satisfies the California regulation, AB 1825. Each course is professionally developed by lawyers, industry experts, and professional trainers and supplemented with complete speaker’s notes, quizzes and an answer key.
The Employee Training Center is an indispensible tool for reducing costs and saving time within an organization. Training professionals aren’t tasked with creating the content and scheduling the trainings while employees can complete the training when it makes sense for them with less impact on overall productivity.
Corporate learning resources from EBSCO Publishing include: comprehensive summaries for the best business books from Business Book Summaries plus magazine and journal content from EBSCO’s Learning Centers. EBSCO also provides evidence-based resources for learning professionals such as Corporate Learning Watch and Competency Center. More information about EBSCO’s suite of Corporate Learning resources is available at http://www.ebscohost.com/learning-resources.
