Employee training and corporate learning culture have become very important in today’s world, and most companies have started to use systems where their employees can receive digital certificates and digital badges for training on skill management in order to increase employee competencies. Especially during the Covid-19 process, companies have taken important steps to use this process more effectively, as most people find more time on the subjects they want to improve themselves. The training processes that take place with the acquisition of a Digital Badge and Digital Certificate for the employee have become important for both employees and companies. It is very important for companies to focus on this issue, as a self-developed employee also performs their work more effectively. By increasing the competencies of existing employees, the company can actually solve the workload it has more effectively, and at the same time, it can save the scarce resources it has. With the digital certificates and digital badges they receive, your company employees both become more motivated to develop and increase their employee competencies.
Investments made in the company’s training culture actually provide a huge return to the company through the competence enhancement of the existing employees. With the investments made, it is a great win-win situation for both employees and employers that employees realize their learning processes through their companies and as a result, make their work visible with digital certificates and digital badges. Developing himself and raising the competence of the employee, and at the same time raising the self-image of the employee with the digital certificate and digital badges in his hand, allow the employee to become more qualified in their future work processes.
In addition to their current employee competencies, the fact that employees can carry out trainings through their own learning areas makes them feel that they are important for their companies. For example, if an employee who is interested in stress management and meditation crowns this process with digital certificates, he will both contribute to his own mental and physical health and will be able to produce more effective and productive processes in his work. At the same time, sharing the processes learned by each employee within the company with other colleagues will create a motivating environment for learning in the environment and accelerate this development process with a snowball effect.
As a result, employee competency in our digital age can now be supported with digital badges and digital certificates, and it is possible to use this whole training process to improve the employee’s own skill management. At the end of the training process, more efficient processes created by the employee for his job are both beneficial for the company and create new potential limits for the employee candidates. Thus, the company saved its own scarce resources over the competencies of its current employees, and at the same time created a win-win situation for its employees.
