White Paper: Millennium Consulting

|| Corporate Communications |


Today's business landscape is an unforgiving terrain. If your people are not getting the training they deserve, then your company can easily lose the competitive edge you have established over the years. Organizations are run by people, and the sharper your people, the higher level of success your company can achieve.

Conducting training programs for managers and staff incurs substantial cost, however. This is especially true when the training methods you deploy are those that were used--essentially unchanged--a decade or so ago.  To complicate matters, economic recessions--like the one we currently experience--compel companies to postpone training initiatives in favor of other expenditures that have a direct impact on the core business.        

The good news is that e-Learning--the single most promising alternative to traditional modes of training--has been evolving radically over the last few years. Following the strides in digital technology--such as the development of more stable infrastructures that can now support rich media over cloud networks--e-Learning can easily replace and surpass traditional methods of learning. At a fraction of the cost.

This is the time to enhance the value your organization can generate for your customers. Empower your people through the next generation e-Learning platforms and get them to lead your industry's future.

Many organizations collaborate with Millennium Communications (MCOM) to dramatically improve staff output while limiting expenditures associated with traditional training programs.

Company A for example, asked us to develop an effective solution that lowers training costs and addresses other latent issues such as language translation and ineffective skill monitoring. We were requested to assess their people's overall productivity level and to identify which areas need immediate training to keep the company competitive as a mid-sized producer of sub assemblies in a B2B environment.  


Company A operates manufacturing facilities in several countries and employs more than 2000 workers. As part of its commitment to productivity and safety, Company A adopts a comprehensive training program where three corporate trainers are hired by the company to conduct programs to all manufacturing units 2 to 3 times a year. The hired trainers deliver seminars on the following areas:
  1. Orientation for newly hired employees
  2. Review and certification / re-certification in workplace safety procedures
  3. Productivity training
  4. Time management and organizational skills training
  5. Emotional Intelligence for managers training and other such courses


After years of adopting conventional approaches to staff training, Company A decided that the value generated by these approaches are not at par with their expectations. After further evaluation, they concluded that:
  1. They were incurring professional costs--primarily for maintaining 3 full time trainers--that are unnecessarily high.
  2. Because trainers need to travel in different countries around the world several times in a year, considerable travel expenses are incurred as well.
  3. Language issues pose a real challenge when training different nationalities.
  4. Continuous monitoring of employee learning becomes quite difficult as soon as trainers leave the site.
  5. Prolonged classroom-based learning significantly erodes employee productivity.
  6. There simply is no way to leverage new technologies such as distance learning under the current training approaches.    

The MCOM Solution

After reviewing the company's training policies and tools, we recommended a comprehensive upgrade to an e-learning platform that provides a robust support for rich media such as videos, assessment quizzes, interactive exercises, and game-based simulations.
To deliver a custom solution that squarely addresses the training needs of Company A, Millenium Communications performed the following:

  1. Work closely with subject matter experts and trainers to understand the needs and challenges of workers in each specific manufacturing site, and realign the training materials accordingly
  2. Reformat all existing Power-Point based content for the e-learning platform
  3. Reap the benefits of cloud computing by deploying a SCORM-compliant Learning Management System (LMS) that has a robust support for assessment tracking and certification
  4. Localization of e-Learning content with language subtitles for videos
After the comprehensive upgrade, staff training in Company A can now be delivered from a single location to a global audience. Because of the flexibility of the e-Learning solution, individual learners can also unilaterally take courses at their own pace without compromising their onsite productivity. Their progress can also be easily tracked from an assessment standpoint. Once a learner completes an assessment, a certification is automatically issued by the LMS. 
A survey conducted indicated that the overall learner satisfaction is at more than 70%, reflecting the training efficiency as well as the depth of learner involvement generated by the solution.
In addition to the remarkable efficiency of the new approach, training costs reportedly dropped by as  much as 45%.
