The Now and Future of Corporate Learning
Gone are the days when the need for training was directly linked to the desire to extract more work from an employee; organizations today have migrated from this passé perspective to a more progressive one. Organizations worldwide have become aware of the fact that learning and training can no longer be left behind, and they now face the grueling challenge of making corporate learning and training an integrated and continuous process. The big question that remains is: “How do we do that and stand out from our competitors while remaining relevant?”
THE NEED FOR CORPORATE LEARNING
Organizations and top e-learning content providers now invest in fostering a culture of corporate learning and a strong learning ethic that is aligned with organizational cornerstones and goals.
EFFECTIVE CORPORATE LEARNING
- Involvement and Inclusion
- Bridging Cultural Differences and Generational Skill Gaps
- Blended Learning and Gamification
- AR/VR Environments
- 360 Degree Learning
INVOLVEMENT AND INCLUSIONIt is imperative to make employees feel valued and involved in every step of the learning and training process by actively including them. This makes them feel valued while also addressing their thoughts and analyzing their responses to create and customize a relevant and personalized solution towards their needs and aligning them with the business’ goals. Surveys suggest that when employees are holistically engaged they will adapt to changes better and display enhanced productivity in carrying out their functions.
BRIDGING CULTURAL DIFFERENCES AND GENERATIONAL SKILL GAPSEmerging technology has facilitated the ease of connection, and that has in turn enhanced the ability to effectively communicate with employees. However, one must be wary of how you approach a new employee or a millennial in comparison to a tenured employee as there is both a generational gap and a difference in how they learn and assimilate that learning. Finding a common ground for more collaborative communication can help boost engagement and bridge generational gaps while promoting a sense of mutual learning. Similarly, effective practices and multilingual or multicultural training can help people from different linguistic, geographical, and cultural backgrounds communicate more clearly and effectively while sharing valuable insights that can benefit the group.
BLENDED LEARNING AND GAMIFICATIONNo single method of learning or delivering training is the best or the most efficient or most productive since learners are different, and the way learning is consumed varies from person to person. The best way to approach this is by creating a suitable mix of content using several mediums and technologies and creating an enriching learning experience that can appeal to a broader audience while delivering on the expected outcomes. One such feature of this blended learning approach is the introduction of gamification and game-based elements in learning. These add new perspectives and approaches while delivering an efficient learning experience that boosts engagement, productivity, and retention.
AR/VR ENVIRONMENTSWhen we rank technological advancements in learning, AR and VR environments take the top spot. Although they have been around for years, the technology has a very wide application reach and a massive exploration potential; hence, making the correct application for your organization's learning needs is critical. These technologies take your learning to a whole new level and provide an unmatched and never-before-seen experience. With such a wide array of applications and usability prospects, the possibilities of what can be achieved are only limited by your imagination.
360 DEGREE LEARNINGTo make learning effective and accessible, a 360-degree approach to learning has to be implemented where learning can be made available at any time through different technology mediums so that the learning experience can gain maximum exposure while simultaneously serving the needs of your learners.
