We have been very pleased with BizLibrary. The best thing is that we are able to reach everyone across the U.S. and provide consistent training. We use it primarily for management and leadership training. Our employees have enjoyed the classes and say that frequently they learn something new and if not, the content provides a good refresher

The presentations helped me develop a deeper understanding of a subject. The information is a nice combination of [being] well organized and applicable to real life information. The test questions are clearly worded and really make you think (but not crazy unrealistic scenarios). I feel very confident about my ability to perform my job.

Cons

BizLibrary

  • The reporting options changed when the program was updated. You have to go through more steps to find the data to download. I would like more canned reports.
  • Adding a new learner is easy, but it takes more time to get them into the right group. We segment learners by company and role to make assigning topics easier for us.

It is very easy to use and when you don't know how to use something it is not hard to find out how.

It's one of the things I love about BizLibrary. We regularly touch base with our client success manager. She (Stacey Moore) is very helpful in providing information, ideas, and feedback. It's also great to have that monthly accountability.

Return on Investment

BizLibrary

  • Employee engagement feedback related to the need for learning & development has already seen an uptick. Many express alot of gratitude/appreciation for the JIT learning opportunity.
  • 1st year ROI achieved with first half-dozen employees who participated in courses which were otherwise budgeted to be taken as one-day, offsite sessions from other (classroom) vendors.
  • Broad-based management support was at first a struggle, to be candid, but as employees have completed courses and then we've followed up, managers are now providing positive feedback from their perspective.

  • As an employee I feel that I can be more efficient doing my job.
  • Increases job satisfaction.
