Implementing or upgrading a Finance/HR system such as Workday will have a big impact on your organisation. Unless you make sure that your users know how to use the solution in the most effective way, you won’t achieve full return on your investment.
Optimum are experts in creating bespoke end-user training programmes for the implementation or upgrade of any Finance or HR system, including Workday, as well as business-as-usual (BAU) refresher training solutions.
We not only understand the way the system works but also how to best train your staff. By using a mixture of tools and methods, Optimum’s training consultants have the relevant expertise to help ensure your workforce adopt the new software and any changing business processes.
Our training consultants are experienced in developing customised, client-branded, collaborative learning solutions for businesses within any industry. We develop training programmes for users of Workday that reflect their way of working, incorporating the individual business processes and workflows for each role group.
Taking advantage of Optimum’s specialist skills and experience in delivering user-focused training will ensure that your organisation achieves full value across the lifetime of the system, as users engage with the system and adopt the new processes.
We offer a range of training services to support the whole lifecycle of the end-user training phase, ensuring your project team can focus on the core project at a crucial stage. Every project is different and so our approach is unique to you. We can either provide a fully-managed training solution or fill the skills gap in your internal team.
Training solutions include:
Many organisations plan to manage the end-user training programme using internal resources, as this is often seen as the most cost-effective way to train staff. However, this can be a high-risk and costly option if it is not planned correctly.
Using a combination of internal super users and a specialist training consultancy such as Optimum, provides a very successful outcome.
Optimum helps organisations to build internal capabilities for training by equipping identified internal super users with the right delivery skills, tools and role-based process knowledge to ensure effective training delivery.
Super users or subject matter experts (SMEs) usually have the technical knowledge, but often lack the training expertise to teach other users how to learn new processes. They may also have little time outside of their day job to develop the tailored training materials for each role-based course.
This is where our training consultants can draw upon their specialist skills to equip your super users for current and future system implementations and upgrades.
“What you’ll get from Optimum will be three things; a professional approach, great customer service and an amazing can-do attitude, and that’s what will get you over the line.”
