What's the challenge?
Training and developing your staff is critical to providing clients with the highest quality service. Further, having a comprehensive training program is an important factor in retaining top talent. Yet many firms are challenged when it comes to organizing, managing and tracking the training process, let alone cutting through the clutter of all the education options available and doing so in a cost effective manner.
What's the solution?
The Illinois CPA Society has developed a state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS), Knowledgehub, which provides firms with a new and innovative way to effectively train your staff. Knowledgehub is a comprehensive, interactive online platform that gives you access to rich content, provides development plans for your professionals and tracks compliance with CPE requirements.
What makes knowledgehub different from other LMS products?
Knowledgehub brings together educational offerings from four vendors, providing you with an extensive catalog of high-quality programs in one central place. Programs from the Illinois CPA Society, Becker Professional Education, SmartPros/CPA Report and Western CPE include live events and on-demand offerings – all designed to provide you and your staff with a superior learning experience.
In one easy-to-navigate site, you can access more than 500 educational offerings. We’ve organized this extensive library of programs in a unique way that matches your firm’s structure – you can browse by practice areas such as “audit”, “tax” or “consulting”, filter by staff level or search for a specific topic.
One of the biggest benefits of using an LMS is the ability to easily monitor and guide the development of your staff. Knowledgehub comes with professional development plans that can be used as is, or customized to meet your specific needs then easily assigned to current and future staff. Supervisors can also assign particular courses to their team members as well as track their overall activity and results.
Knowledgehub fits in any training budget with an annual access fee of only $25 per person. The optional Compliance module can be added for $20 per person. Programs are purchased individually and your costs can be controlled by setting an annual spending cap per user that’s tracked within Knowledgehub.
