Labour hire companies consist of a group of skilled and specialised staff, saving time for employers finding the relevant people required to perform the job. A big part of recruiting a skilled team involves consistently making efforts in learning, engagement and comms.
Not having access to the right information or training tools can put pressure on staff having to complete specialised projects. On the other hand, having too much information can lead to information overload which often results in poor staff retention, reduced employee productivity, performance and employee satisfaction as well as an increase in stress, fatigue and health concerns. Failure to implement LMS to your workforce can mean employees not understanding their jobs, increasing the risk of incidents happening and putting employees at risk of injury of which business owners can be held liable for. Under the WHS laws, an individual can be fined $100 000 (employer or officer of a PCBU) if category 3 is breached.
Category 3 states: ‘the person has a health and safety duty and the person fails to comply with that duty.’
Having an LMS helps create a consistent learning environment while driving engagement. Therefore, without one it will be more difficult to measure your employees’ learning performance. By implementing an LMS to your organisation, you can emphasise safety measures and protocols to ensure your business is legally compliant.
