Benefits of software learning at Shaw Computer Systems Inc.:

Improved employee performance

Employees who receive necessary learning are better able to perform in their job. Software learning will give employees a greater understanding of the software, and in turn build confidence. This confidence will enhance overall performance, and this will benefit the company. Employees who are competent and on top of changing industry standards help your company hold a position as a leader and strong competitor within the industry.

Improved employee satisfaction and morale

The investment in software learning that a company makes shows employees that they are valued. The learning creates a supportive workplace. Employees may gain software experience they wouldn’t have otherwise known about or sought out themselves. Employees who feel appreciated and challenged through learning opportunities may feel more satisfaction toward their jobs.

A Stronger Team

Most employees will have some weaknesses in their workplace skills. A software learning program allows you to strengthen those skills that each employee needs to improve. Software learning brings all employees to a higher level, so they all have similar skills and knowledge. This helps reduce any weak links within the company who rely heavily on others to complete basic work tasks. Providing the necessary software learning creates an overall knowledgeable staff with employees who can take over for one another as needed, work on teams or work independently without constant help and supervision from others.

Increased productivity and adherence to quality standards

Productivity usually increases when a company implements software learning sessions. Increased efficiency in processes will ensure project success which in turn will improve the company turnover and potential market share.

Increased innovation in new strategies and products

Ongoing learning and upskilling of the workforce can encourage creativity. New ideas can be formed as a direct result of learning and development.

Reduced employee turnover

Staff are more likely to feel valued if they are invested in and therefore, less likely to change employers. Learning and development are seen as an additional company benefit. Recruitment costs therefore go down due to staff retention.

Enhances company reputation and profile

Having a strong and successful learning strategy helps to develop your employer brand and make your company a prime consideration for graduates and mid-career changes. Continued learning also makes a company more attractive to potential new recruits who seek to improve their skills and the opportunities associated with those new skills.

At Shaw Computer Systems Inc., you will work with expert quality instructors, in a small and efficient classroom environment, limited to 8 students in our facility. All our software learning is done with a live instructor, so you can ask your important questions and get real life examples.

We have discovered that many of our clients are using only a small fraction of the power in the software they have paid for. Don’t waste any more time! Get your staff up to speed using resources you already have. Users will do considerably more work with much less effort with the right software learning.

Lunch Breaks

A 1-hour lunch break is incorporated with all full-day sessions.
