5 Reasons to Embrace eLearning Infographic
Today’s organizations experience insufficient training and a lack of knowledge sharing that prevents teams from achieving their greatest potential. The 5 Reasons to Embrace eLearning Infographic explains why eLearning is the most effective method of training employees.
Why should organizations embrace eLearning?
1. Traditional training methods don’t cut it anymore.

- Up to 85% of training fails to deliver a positive ROI.
- Unless there is a robust reinforcement program in place, most learners will likely forget 80% material within 90-120 days after the training is delivered.
2. eLearning gets results.
