Overcoming Onboarding and Employee Experience Challenges with an LMS


Recruiting, training and retaining top talent is never easy, but it's especially challenging right now. With the post-pandemic labor market bearing more than a passing resemblance to a full-employment market, it's the organizations that invest the most in talent development that'll come out on top.  

Absorb LMS gives businesses an edge. It empowers them to bring new hires up to speed faster and provide opportunities for growth so they're motivated to stay longer—all from an intuitive dashboard that's as user-friendly for administrators as it is for learners. With scalable features and powerful AI, it's clear how Absorb LMS earned its reputation as the go-to learning solution partner for ADP customers.

The uncertainty of the past year made it difficult for employees to justify the risk associated with seeking new opportunities. Now, with businesses reopening and eager to make up lost time, organizations should be prepared for what many are calling a "great wave of resignation."
