Corporate learning plays a pivotal role in enhancing an organization’s ability to attract, engage, and retain employees. Organizations around the world are increasingly focusing on large-scale corporate training programs to boost employee productivity and show them a clear path for growth within the organization. However, with the scope and variety of learning options at their disposal today and the expertise that is often required to implement such enterprise-wide initiatives, businesses can easily end up selecting the wrong route without the right partners guiding them. This is where ARCHway Learning Solutions comes in.
ARCHway is a full-delivery learning solutions provider for organizations across a wide range of industries, including engineering, pharma, hospitality, and eldercare. Amber Carlson-Hays, President of ARCHway, says, “Our focus is on the full development, implementation, and evaluation of learning programs in all types of industries.” ARCHway works closely with organizations to pinpoint what they need the program to do and develop it with them, adhering to the company’s focus of “Together we make Learning Simplified.” This includes creating custom learning solutions based on clients’ processes, culture, and mission. With over a decade of experience, Amber is committed to developing learning strategies and initiatives that align with organizational culture and increase engagement.
Deploying the right Learning Management Solution (LMS) is critical to the success of learning programs and also measuring the success. ARCHway offers hands-on assistance to help clients identify the best-fit LMS for their organization. Moreover, the company does all the legwork for the process, including contract negotiations and initial setup support.
Establishing a successful learning solution that impacts the performance of every employee can be a challenge for companies. The learning solutions offered by ARCHway stand out for the high degree of personalization and effectiveness they provide. The programs act as learning paths for every employee, subsequently allowing them to grow with the organization. Each learning program is designed to accommodate varied employee proficiencies, such as language comprehension skills and employee experience levels.
The highly palatable learning content is delivered via the employees’ medium of choice catering to various styles of learning; auditory, visual, read/write, and hands-on interactive. Engagement also plays a crucial role in the success of ARCHway’s programs.
From games to humor, the programs incorporate proven training techniques to ensure that learning is enjoyable, memorable, and effective for all employees. ARCHway takes on each project not just as instructional designers but also as agents of change, seeking to facilitate behavioral change in both clients and employees. ARCHway’s learning solutions are more holistic than most offerings available on the market. “We align the learning solutions closely with the client’s business goals and consider training as the crucial intervention needed to achieve them,” says Amber.
Before offering a solution, the ARCHway team explores the client’s training requirements in great depth and determines appropriate measurement criteria to gauge the success of the engagement. Often, training alone may not be the answer, and the ARCHway team ensures that their clients always have the right information and support to create a solution that truly works for them. From local companies to nation-wide organizations, ARCHway works to customize the best solution for each client.
ARCHway’s unique approach to curating learning solutions has resulted in highly-effective training programs for several organizations. In one instance, ARCHway helped Judson Senior Living curate a successful LMS and roll out orientation to all the employees. When the client’s representative on the project moved to Certus Healthcare Management, she immediately hired ARCHway again to find the right LMS and develop custom orientation for the larger scale organization. Another example, the nation-wide organization of Senior Lifestyle reached out from their in house training department to utilize ARCHway’s expertise to develop a unique program for it’s employees.
