Investing in professional development is so important to the growth of your staff, and in turn, the caliber and growth of your credit union. But sometimes it can be difficult to figure out the logistics of physically sending staff to training or interrupting your day by having to attend a scheduled webinar.
Professional development needs must be balanced against the practical operational needs of your credit union. The Synergent Learning Center has become a go-to resource for credit union users for continuous learning, professional growth, and organizational effectiveness. The cost-effective, high-quality training that is offered now is more convenient than ever!
On Your Time
Effective immediately, nearly all Learning Center webinars are being offered exclusively as recordings. Episys and other product release webinars and certain other select sessions will be offered live to provide the best level of assistance and access to information. Webinars involving system upgrades may benefit from having an interactive live session that allows for questions. In the event of a live webinar, a recording will always follow.
“Based on attendance numbers and credit union feedback, the majority of credit unions have indicated that they would rather view a recording at their convenience rather than attend a scheduled live session, even if that live session offered them the opportunity to interact with the trainer,” shared Kathy Newman, Synergent Director of Technical Communications. “The Synergent Learning Center’s Education Subscription program is a valuable resource available to our credit union partners, evidenced by the more than 700 user accounts set up to date.”
Since it was launched in April 2017, nearly 200 recordings have been created and archived in the Synergent Learning Center’s library. These recordings have literally reached thousands of credit union staff across the country, with nearly 2,300 unique views to date. Offerings initially covered only Episys-related topics, but have expanded to now include payments sessions.
“The most popular recording to date is ‘10 Things You Might Not Know About Episys’ with more than 160 views,” stated Newman. “Webinars on EasyWriter are also popular, with close to 150 viewings.”
Benefits for Credit Unions
There are many benefits for credit unions using Synergent’s Learning Center for educational webinars, which include:
- Accessibility. View the training sessions you want, when you want to view them. Easily scroll back to listen again if you’ve missed something.
- Cost-Effectiveness. Joining the Education Subscription program is very economical. The monthly subscription cost that allows for unlimited access to nearly 200 training sessions is less than the typical cost of sending one staffer to a live training session.
- Content Curation. Credit unions can create their own “playlists” to serve as training paths for staff to follow to acquire new skills and brush up on existing knowledge and skills.
- Cross-Train Staff. The ability for credit unions to cross-train staff is made simpler by using the many recordings that are available.
From standard curriculum to specialty topics, credit unions are able to access training designed to help their staff grow their skills and increase productivity.
