A learning management system (LMS) is used to easily assign courses to employees tailored to the educational and training needs of your company. These tools function as a library of educational material, including assigned and elective courses, that employees can access from any of their devices. An LMS solution will often provide reporting, documentation, and tracking so you can monitor how your workforce is engaging with the material.
Drive Employee Growth and Career Development
More than ever before, employees expect career development and tools to help them grow; without this, attrition is a growing risk. Paylocity simplifies the process of employee training and eliminates the need to source with multiple vendors, upload files, and keep those files up-to-date over time. Subject matter experts can create training and share their knowledge in Community, our online social collaboration hub. And with the Paylocity Mobile App, employees can take learning with them, wherever they go.

Assign with Ease and Track Progress
Set training to recur at a certain frequency, bulk assign it, or select individuals or groups of employees. Set due dates on courses and monitor completions, for both online and in-person training, with our robust tracking capabilities. Reinforce compliance with timely employee reminders and the option to prevent fast-forwarding.
Foster a Culture of Learning
Assign subject matter experts that can create custom trainings and share their knowledge across the organization to harness the power of your employees. The system can also recommend courses to employees based on industry and role.
Import interactive, web-ready coursework files like AICC, SCORM, xAPI, or CMI-5. Record a screen-share, add audio, and build quizzes to customize courses and require a supervisor to sign off on a training completion if needed.
“We didn’t have any way to track compliance before. Being able to assign and track mandatory courses has made our life more effective and efficient.”
“When someone completes a training, that training record goes straight to their personnel file. We know it's done; we can launch it or a reminder. We have easy trackability.”
