Overall Satisfaction with Skillsoft

Our entire organization used Skillsoft. We use it to allow for employees to improve upon any necessary skills that they might be lacking and to allow for personalized training on new software that we put out or implement. We also store libraries of content for course work so that other teachers can have access to that.
  • Skillsoft organizes trainings really well. The trainings completed are organized in an easy to use manner.
  • Ease of use - there isn't much training required for new users to jump right in and being using.
  • Adding new trainings or certifictaions is really easy to do within the platform.
  • Add simpler training for even less skilled employees.
  • The ability to have on-demand training saves money in not having to have an in-house trainer.
  • Employees can complete training on their own time (even at home), so if they need more time for a training, they can complete it on their own time.
Skillsoft has a wider variety of trainings offered and allows for a greater ability to personalize trainings within your organization needs.
Skillsoft is great for training employees when there are specific needs. For instance, if you have a need to have employees all trained in a new software that you plan to deploy, having them complete their training through skillsoft first saves time and money on in-house training. Employees can move through training at their own pace as opposed to an in-house trainer that trains everyone at one time. I find more skills are missed that way - people won't ask questions, but they are apt to go through the trainings at their own pace and pick up these skills.
