Over the last two decades, the learning management system (LMS) technology market has evolved more dramatically than any other HR or HCM technology area, and for good reason. Organizations use learning applications across every department every day, thus these systems are an integral part of any organization concerned about productivity, organizational agility and operational excellence. These technologies enable organizations to demonstrate their investment in people, as LMS not only facilitate regulatory compliance and other forms of cost avoidance but also can improve internal mobility, career growth and the employee experience. This in turn tends to improve employee loyalty, retention and engagement.
