According to, last month, the Labor Department announced that the southern U.S. outpaced other regions in the number of job openings in July, and that momentum has continued in August as Florida's “help wanted” online ads increased to 264,253, up from 230,949 in August, 2011 (1). Rethink Training, a web-based learning system that allows businesses to provide customized training solutions, is helping Florida businesses expand as they hire. By training employees on the job immediately, workers become knowledgeable rapidly and become productive sooner, thereby allowing companies to continue to add new positions and decrease turnover.

Rethink has been telling businesses that better training can provide a competitive advantage that empowers companies to succeed and grow. Well-trained employees are able to do their jobs more effectively and efficiently, and therefore have greater confidence and job satisfaction – which helps minimize turnover. When you don’t have to continuously replace employees, you can focus your resources on building your business.

“Our online system allows new hires to become knowledgeable rapidly with their new employer’s products or services,” commented Rafferty Pendery, CEO of Rethink Training. “Any company in any industry can use the training as a tool to improve efficiency and decrease costs, leaving room for expansion.”

The article continues to list the industries that had the largest numbers of job openings (1):

●private education and healthcare;
●business and professional services; and
●trade, transportation and utilities.

Rethink Training was created to solve the unique needs of businesses, from healthcare or trade to education or utilities. Upon speaking with executives and staff at many corporations, Rethink found the common points that businesses found frustrating in not being able to train their employees. The company behind Rethink, Studio98, embarked on creating an online training platform, where administrators can easily build interactive courses for employees that feature text, images and videos, as well as multiple-choice and essay-based quizzes.

The features of Rethink are many – a collaborative effort with their clients:

1.While some training platforms require content to be downloaded to the user’s system, Rethink Training uses Web-hosted content to ensure that all employees have access to the latest documentation and are not referencing outdated information.

2.Any company with access to the Internet can create, manage and/or study a course. Training materials can be published and instantly accessed by employees or clients/customers.

3.In addition, administrators can update course content in real time. This is an important consideration for businesses, since new products and enhancements are typically rolled out on an ongoing basis throughout the year.

4.Other key features include the flexibility to customize training modules for specific job functions, and the ability design courses of any duration – from under an hour to multiple days.

Rethink Training provides businesses with the tools they need to succeed and to keep Florida’s job growth climbing – online training made easy. Rethink’s clients include Inc. 500 and Fortune 100 companies.
