Learning within the workplace is shifting, and as we mentioned in the previous blog post, allowing employees to have more control of their own learning has a great impact on how engaged they are as well as the knowledge they retain. That is why Inspirus utilizes micro-learning, a type of learning that breaks important information into smaller chunks for users to easily comprehend. The only problem, however, is since micro-learning can be done at any time, even after hours and outside of the workplace, it’s difficult to properly compensate hourly employees without a way to measure the amount of time they spend on e-learning. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), an employee must be compensated for all “hours worked,” including training time. To alleviate this strain, Inspirus is bringing compensation reports into the equation, because keeping track of hours isn’t always as simple as clocking in and clocking out anymore. Now, organizations can get a basis for compensation of training pay and keep up with the amount of time hourly workers spend on micro-learning courses, which in turn, eases the burden for management and increases the accuracy of an employee’s wages.
