Today we’re happy to announce more than 30 new manager training courses available on Udemy for Business! The new courses from LearnSmart include topics essential to all successful managers such as transitioning into management, how to run a team meeting, working with cross-generational teams, how to effectively delegate, and managing contractors.
Effective new manager training is more important than ever. 2014 was the best year for job gains since 1999,* meaning US companies are bringing on and promoting new managers quickly, many of whom have zero management experience. According to Bersin by Deloitte, equipping new managers with the essential management skills they need to succeed can help improve business results by 21 percent.
This data coupled with requests from current customers point to a need for training resources that allow companies to get new managers up-to-speed and scale their businesses most effectively – a need that Udemy for Business now fills with engaging and effective LearnSmart courses. Happy learning!
