- The ability for managers to recommend courses to their employees. Using the sub-admin feature, managers can recommend courses to their employees directly within LinkedIn Learning. This is so much more effective and relevant than a single administrator recommending courses, and leads to more actionable development plans, Atkinson said. “It allows the manager to do what they are intended to do—to herald the professional development of their team,” she said.
- The ability to upload custom content into the tool. Furthering the autonomy the tool lends its managers, occasionally managers want their employees to read an article or watch a video separate from a LinkedIn Learning course. Using the custom content linking feature, managers can incorporate that as part of a curriculum or as a standalone material, recommending that content to employees through LinkedIn Learning—a big benefit to Atkinson, as all eLearning is centralized.
- The fact LinkedIn Learning is tied to LinkedIn. Deltek has other accounts with LinkedIn – including LinkedIn Sales Navigator, LinkedIn Marketing, and LinkedIn Recruiter, which their sales, marketing, and recruiting team use daily. And Deltek employees use LinkedIn as well every day. Having LinkedIn Learning as part of that ecosystem means people see courses more, and ultimately leads to higher engagement, Atkinson said. “Having a learning system that ties to programs we are already using makes it more seamless for Deltek employees to move from one LinkedIn tool to another,” she said.
- It’s proven to help recruit candidates. An unexpected benefit of LinkedIn Learning is Deltek recruiters have been using it to close candidates. “When people hear that we have LinkedIn Learning, it certainly helps a candidate to make the decision to join our organization over others,” Atkinson said.
