Sunrise, FL (PRWEB) August 19, 2007
Learn.com®, the leader in on-demand workforce development and productivity, announced today that Extra Space Storage Inc. (NYSE: EXR), the second largest operator of self-storage in the U.S., and a national owner, developer, acquirer and operator of professionally managed self-storage properties, with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah, has renewed its partnership with the company for an additional three years.
"The LearnCenter platform has allowed us to redesign the way we deliver new hire training to our field organization. We now have a blended approach of online learning coupled with on-the-job training. This has allowed us to do a much more thorough job of training our new employees. We also deliver training for new programs more quickly and with better quality. In addition, we use the LearnCenter platform to house our Community of Practice forums. These forums allow our field management to share best practices and quickly respond to questions about procedures and processes," said Karen Langham, Vice President of Training at Extra Space Storage.
"The boost to our organization's ROI has been remarkable. Since implementing the LearnCenter platform, our new hire turnover (turnover in the first 90 days of employment) has decreased from 10.85% pre-LearnCenter to 7.5% post-LearnCenter. The LearnCenter platform has given our learning department a lot of credibility within the organization. We are one of the only companies in our industry to use a learning management system and this has given us a strategic advantage over our competitors in terms of our people and how well they are trained," explained Langham.
"Learn.com has been a wonderful partner for Extra Space Storage. The support and ongoing service we receive from all facets of your organization has been great. Our questions are always answered promptly. Our LearnCenter administrator takes full advantage of all of Learn.com's free weekly training sessions and this has allowed us to really grow in our use of the LearnCenter platform. We're proud to serve as a Learn.com reference," added Langham.
