Balance Learning, the interactive learning company, has launched an engaging e-learning course which shows how employees can save an average of 29 minutes per day by managing their email more efficiently.
Called Emailogic Interactive – Effective Email, the 90-minute course promotes best practice and provides tips and techniques to help individuals write, reply to, forward, copy, access and store their emails. Available as e-learning, CD-Rom or interactive DVD, it also highlights the hazards and legalities of using email.
“Email has transformed the way we communicate and share information at work but few people have had any formal training so it is often misused, resulting in information overload and high stress levels,” said Chris Horseman, managing director of Balance Learning. “This easy-to-use course is designed to help organisations improve their email culture and free-up staff time for more productive tasks by ensuring that employees use email more effectively. It can save the average email user 29 minutes per day. In an organisation with 1,000 employees using email, that equates to a potential annual cost saving of around £2 million.”
Developed in partnership with Emailogic, the market leader in email best practice, the new course is an interactive version of an award-winning seminar by Emailogic which has demonstrably saved time and money in public and private sector organisations. It features an engaging video presentation by email expert Marc Powell, supplemented with interactive exercises, animations and examples of good practice. A pre and post assessment survey measures email attitudes and behaviours before and after the course, enabling organisations to benchmark their improvement rates.
Also included is a printable 12-page reference book which provides notes, summaries, exercises and examples to help users create their own action plan and put the lessons from the course into practice.
The online and CD-Rom versions of Emailogic Interactive – Effective Email are available under an annual licence based on the number of users or size of organisation (as little as £7 per employee). A multi-user licence for the iDVD is priced at £1,200.
Balance Learning is offering organisations an online pilot of Emailogic Interactive – Effective Email, for 10 employees, for £600. The company will refund the cost if the results do not demonstrate an overall improvement in the way email is used within the pilot group.
