The global job market is changing dramatically – in part due to the pervasive and rapid adoption of technology in its varied uses. From smarter tools to integrated applications, technology is paving the way forward in how the global business environment operates today.
Likewise, prioritising learning and development (L&D) is a need for companies that want to stay competitive. For reasons such as improved employee engagement, more skilled employees, higher hiring attraction rate as well as market position, organisations should leverage professional development in their employees.
An increase in technology adoption, changes in job functions and skill requirements are reasons to rethink how L&D is executed at work. Evolving work demands and skill requirements support reinforce the rating that 86% saw L&D as the most crucial trend in 2019.
How will professional e-learning development solutions prepare employees for the future?
Alongside technology, the pandemic has also accelerated digital transformation in companies with training platforms, remote working, and virtual events such as conferences.
1. Promote innovative learning solutions
Having the capability to develop and deploy innovative learning solutions are significant for organisations to keep their L&D programs running, by virtue of e-learning platforms.
The 8EYOND Learning Management System (LMS) offered by Training & Development Services (TDS) has all the necessary features to support the rollout of remote e-learning courses. Local hosting, customisable CSS for varying screen sizes, as well as a robust e-learning architectural structure are key features of the scalable training platform.
2. Improve skill sets for remote work
Reskilling and upskilling are two core components of keeping oneself employable and relevant. With most of 2020 spent working from home, working on managerial and interpersonal skills have risen in importance. Communicating with your colleagues in-person versus online posits different challenges for all involved. Incorporating e-learning courses focused on these skill sets can support your team’s reskilling efforts for success.
3. Reboarding employees based on their needs
A label for retraining employees returning to the workplace, ‘reboarding’ focuses on adapting new changes through highly-relevant and focused professional development courses. As most processes will have changed, organisations will need to find training platforms and a host of e-learning courses that are customised to match employees’ varying needs. This is vital to keeping your workforce engaged, competitive, and ready for any new challenges.
