2017 Was a Transformative Year for Corporate Training
Came across this article on recent changes in corporate training. It highlights some of the things we already know as L & D professionals, but it's good to see these acknowledged outside our industry.
Here are a few highlights:
- This year, business leaders began to understand that sporadic, one-size-fits-all training doesn’t meet employees’ complex, often-changing needs. In 2017, overhauling corporate L&D became the second most important topic for CEOs and HR leaders—up from fifth the previous year, according to the 2017 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends report
- Research suggests that there is no universal “best” way to learn—it depends on several factors, including the learning objective, the subject matter, and each person’s preferred learning style.
- Training is becoming more accessible, mobile, bite-sized, relevant, and engaging.
