Employee Training Module: Schedule and Document Environmental Services Training
How does the Employee Training Module work?
ES Optimizer’s Employee Training Module has over 30 prepopulated training modules. These are pre-set training classes that can be customized to your facility’s needs.
Using the Employee Training Module, managers can schedule training and monitor results and test scores on an ongoing basis. By pulling sign-in sheets from the module, training attendance can be tracked over months, years, or throughout an employee’s tenure. With this information only a few clicks away instead of filed in a drawer, reporting to the Joint Commission is easier than ever. Using Quality Inspections, EVS managers can identify employees whose performance could benefit with additional instruction.
The Employee Training Module also includes a calendar view that enables managers to see the big picture, letting them oversee when training classes are taking place throughout the month and total number of employees that have completed them.
Each class included in the Employee Training Module is designed to be interactive, comprehensive, and led by an instructor. We encourage environmental services departments to take the courses we’ve designed and make them yours. EVS departments can even use the module to design custom classes and access all the same tracking components.
