e-learning shouldn't be limited to doing mandatory courses or just gaining qualifications - it's about getting information to people. And that means you can utlise it in all sorts of ways to benefit your business.

We've already seen the power of e-learning when it comes to attracting the best jobseekers attracting the best jobseekers , but what sort of advantages does e-learning have for a company looking to hire from within?

Internal recruitment presents obvious financial benefits for businesses who aren't ready to expand their headcount. Learn with Mobile is the ideal training solution if you'd rather develop your current employees into new roles.


It's inevitably a big change for everyone when a new member of staff joins the team. The new person may take a few weeks or even months to come out of their shell and get up to speed, whilst current employees must adjust as their team grows and changes.

Internal recruitment has the benefit of previously formed relationships. Connections are already made and promotions from within are celebrated as people share in their teammate's success

By having a policy of upskilling your employees, they'll support one another – strengthening the bond between them and bringing the team closer, and in turn making your workplace culture stronger.

Spend your time wisely

One of the most problematic parts of the recruitment process is the amount of time it takes to create job advertisements, shortlist applicants, interview candidates, and decide on who you'd like to bring on board.

When hiring internally, you already know the strengths and weaknesses of your team. Let's face it, you probably know who best fits the role before you even advertise the promotion.

With e-learning, you can test out your assumptions by creating quizzes and problem-solving challenges for your employees. The results will highlight which team members are the perfect fit, and it will take a fraction of the time of external recruitment.
