Submit a training request with Workstreams
What’s it handy for?
Gather all training requests on a transparent Kanban board, and assign the correct person to each request. This workflow encourages cross-company knowledge sharing, increases employee satisfaction, and fosters employee growth.
A few uses for this workflow:
- Employees: Request training in a field in which they want to acquire skill.
- HR: Get a clear overview of areas of interest and prioritize programs accordingly.
- Team leads: Keep track of employees skillsets.
Triggered by a shortcut menu, this workflow prompts the user to fill out a simple form regarding their desired training. The request is forwarded as a Workstrams.ai task on a Kanban board where it’s assigned to the person most suitable to conduct the training.
To get started:
- Install the Workstreams Slack app
