Can What They Don’t Know Hurt Them? Why Employee Training Matters

October 30, 2020

We don’t know what we don’t know. An old adage, and truer now than ever. As business leaders, we must future-proof our organizations to cope with the increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world we live in. At HRdownloads, we firmly believe the most effective way to build a future-ready organization is to prepare future-ready leaders and staff. And the best way to do that is with engaging, exciting, and relevant training.

Watch the trailer below for our recently added
animated training!

We’ve added new courses for Ontario businesses and their employees, but we also have animated training relevant to businesses across Canada.


With our all-new animated training courses, we combine interactive scenarios, rich storytelling, and industry-leading learning design, so you’ll be sure to engage all types of learners on your team. Our animated training courses follow fictional characters through a storyline of relatable situations. Employees get to practise making great decisions with interactive scenarios to learn from their choices. A quiz at the end seals the deal, so you can be confident your team has the tools they need to keep your organization safe and compliant!

Providing your team with access to the information and tools they need to do their job allows them to be more productive, confident, and engaged in the workplace. Of course, it’s also critical for the health and safety of the employee in many cases. Training during the onboarding process is important, but continuous learning is also key for employees’ career development and growth, making them more valuable members of your team.

According to Indeed, there are at least
11 key benefits to training employees, including:

  • Increased productivity and performance;
  • Improved organizational structure;
  • Boosted morale;
  • Improved customer valuation;
  • Better workplace environment;
  • And more!

When it comes to training, Indeed points out that consistency is key. When employees learn different approaches to, let’s say, dealing with a difficult customer, this can lead to different outcomes for your organization. With training platforms like HRdownloads online training, you can be sure employees are getting the same information. You can assign customer service training (like HRdownloads’ Defusing Hostile Customers animated training), which gives employees the skills they need to manage difficult or escalated situations. When employees have the tools they need, they are more likely to stay with your company, saving you time, money, and the efforts needed to train new employees.

“Training is important because it represents a good opportunity for employees to grow their knowledge base and improve their job skills to become more effective in the workplace. Despite the cost of training for employees, the return on investment is immense if it is consistent.” – Indeed, Career Guide

Whether it’s animated training or any of our other online courses, your employees will appreciate learning in ways that fit with their time, learning style, and pace. Employers will love that you can get access to an unlimited number of courses for all your employees. No costs per course provides you the most value out of your training budget and allows you to build custom training plans by employee, by department, or across your organization! Easily send assignments to your employees in our platform to get the learning started and get back to doing what you love.
