The assignment feature should allow you to future date an enrollment, this way assignments can be planned out in advance and are not forced to be released the date it is intended. The completion features should be able to be manipulated by the admin from the employees transcript regardless if it is indirect or directly assigned. There are instances where employees may have taken the course in another manner and having the ability to mark them complete in any area of the portal on the admin side would be helpful.

BizLibrary, conversely, does an excellent job at being available both via email and phone; if you do have to leave a message, we have yet to see more than 24hrs pass before seeing a response.

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.

BizLibrary is a great tool for our employees to achieve their safety compliance. It is also a great avenue for them to learn new topics that can help bolster their skill set to move up in the organization. The content is available 24/7 which allows our employees to complete training when it is appropriate for them.

In the beginning, training for me was keeping track of everyone's training on a spreadsheet and either passing out cds for management to pop in their devices to show at meetings or passing out reading material. Then, have those employees sign off on a sheet of paper. I always asked myself; did they retain that information, did they really watch the video, etc., etc? Biz Library has not only changed how we do things but gives our employees an opportunity to increase their knowledge and skills in practically any area they choose.

In my opinion, BizLibrary is well-suited for any organization where learning & development is wanted/needed, but there is a lack of resources to deliver it all internally. Regardless of the size of the company, I can see a fit. Resources have always been a challenge... whether I was in a Fortune-ranked organization or a nonprofit or a start-up... so I feel they have a product offering which can fit nearly anyone out there.

The City of Frederick is in the process of launching BizLibrary first with our executive team. The plan is to launch across the supervisory team and ultimately to roll out to all City employees (full-time and regular part-time). It will provide just-in-time learning opportunities to allow executives to sharpen their leadership skills in key competencies and stay abreast of best practices and compliance requirements.
  • Covers a broad range of topics with ease of access
  • Ties training to the Lominger Competencies.
  • Training varies in length and style
  • Need more flexibility for branding the web site as a City of Frederick learning portal.
  • Improve administrative functions to allow ease of assigning courses, etc.
  • Will have more input once we are actively launched with executives.
The BizLibrary support in both marketing and implementation are super helpful and really form a partnership with the client company. I was drawn to the flexibility of training--the fact that there are very short snippets and also longer (deep dive) training. There are a myriad of training topics--all very pertinent for today's employees and managers. The presentation styles vary which keeps the training interesting. BizLibrary is not maintaining the status quo, they are growing and changing. That is the kind of vendor partnership I value!
