Valamis Launches Comprehensive Learning-Cost Tracking Feature

Joensuu (FI), June 2024 - Valamis is excited to announce the launch of its latest publication designed to transform the tracking and management of learning and training costs. The comprehensive Valamis Cost of Learning report addresses key areas such as employment, workforce diversity, training programs, health- and safety measures, labor relations, and social engagement activities.

It not only helps companies fulfill legal obligations, but also provides an excellent opportunity to showcase the positive impact of their learning and development (L&D) efforts.

Available to all Valamis customers, the new Valamis Cost of Learning report ensures compliance with regulatory requirements while offering valuable data-driven insights into an organization's learning initiatives.

Our new report assists companies in monitoring and reporting the average hours of training per employee. It aligns with the GRI 404-1 standard and the Belgian Social Balance Sheet requirements, addressing the global need to track learning costs, making it beneficial for companies worldwide.
