In the modern business age, companies that are unable to adjust their learning practices are often the ones that get left behind. As a result, the tech savvy business leaders are leaving behind traditional methods and are looking towards more effective solutions, focused on innovative technology that will engage new and young talent to improve performance.
Here are five key trends to include in your staff training for advanced learning and development:
1.Your Employees are Your Business
There is a current shortage of strong, young leaders with the skills needed to develop companies. This has led to a downturn in engagement, issues with turnover and lack of business growth. Taking on energetic, new members of staff should now be a priority for all businesses, yet management can still struggle to build lasting relationships and rather than giving employees the opportunity to grow, they avoid change for fear of where it will lead. Forty-one percent of people questioned in the Learning and Development Benchmarking Study by the Brandon Hall Group described their employers as controlling.
As technology and the culture of younger staff within the workplace changes, companies must rethink their approach to one that provides more independence and allows employees to take control within their roles.
2. Join the Mobile Revolution
The world has never been more mobile, but many companies are yet to fully embrace these mobile learning solutions. Around ten percent of businesses use mobile web-based solutions, eight percent use apps and five percent use web-based sites for working. As businesses look to improve adaptation, reach and engagement of users and staff a fully thought out mobile strategy is key.
3. Understanding Social Media Kit
In today’s social world, it is critical that businesses begin embracing social media tools as a part of their core strategy. Many businesses still lack the insight and knowledge as to how best to use these tools for staff training and development. Within the study, 59 percent of companies included social media in their development plans and only 24 percent believe it to be effective.
4. Begin Offering Adaptive Learning
Adaptive learning is a concept design to give control back to staff members and allow them to learn and grow at a pace that suits them. Traditionally employees may have been placed on courses that relied on them being able to learn at the same pace as other team members. Adaptive learning monitors everyone individually and adjusts learning techniques for each staff member.
5. Aligning Training with Company Objectives
Learning and development have previously been dictated by management without little input or choice from team members. Future learning development will be aligned not only with the business but also employee needs to create a well-structured and properly placed development plan. The aim of learning should be to drive employee engagement, staff retention and increase performance.
