“We have been able to provide easy access, relevant and useful training tools for professional development”
At FedBid, 60% of employees start in entry-level positions. In fact, many of their employees started out as interns and worked their way up.
FedBid is a fully managed online marketplace that helps federal, state and local governments, businesses and educational institutions buy the quality goods and services they need, saving money and time, while also reducing risk.
FedBid is focused on creating development opportunities and promotions for their employees. Since many of their employees start in entry-level positions, FedBid is constantly adapting to new generational needs and processes.
“Our employees are eager for training and development opportunities, and our leadership team is committed to meeting that demand.”
The organization needed to make sure they had the best and most skilled employees possible.
An employee survey at FedBid showed that online video training was a preferred method among employees. BizLibrary offered a unique solution that was a perfect fit for the training and development FedBid wanted to provide.
BizLibrary worked with each one of the department managers at FedBid to better assess their business problems and suggest solutions.
Before officially launching the program, show-and-tell sessions were held at FedBid to ensure all employees were familiar and comfortable with the program.
To implement the BizLibrary program, FedBid managers met with employees in each department and worked together to determine areas of improvement and what courses would be the most appropriate.
Also, annual performance evaluations at FedBid helped determine skill gaps in employees. The solution? A customized selection of BizLibrary courses for each department, in a variety of formats, and accessible from any device.
“We created a role-based curriculum to provide condensed lists of courses.”
With the help of their BizLibrary Client Success Consultant, various course curricula were developed containing a variety of courses that focused on the skills employees needed to be successful in their jobs at FedBid and strengthen their career opportunities. Some courses were required, while others were strongly recommended.
Since the implementation of the BizLibrary program, the FedBid learning program has helped improve the communication process across departments, more effectively engage their employees and build core career skills.
“We have made sure that courses include real-life scenarios and applications to our employees’ day-to-day work needs and experiences.”
Overall, the program has changed FedBid into a more effective and confident organization.
