The following information has been extracted from the Brandon Hall Group report entitled ‘Just in time, just for me: Learning in the flow of work’.
We have shared our commentary and thoughts as a two part series, this being part 2.
Companies whose learning has a positive impact on things such as time to productivity, employee engagement and individual performance are far more likely to provide a contextual, accessible experience
– With productivity, engagement and performance being positively influenced, it seems high quality learning may well affect an organisations culture. This is worth considering as you build, create and share your digital learning.
72% of companies expect that 25% or more of their workforce will be remote after stay-at-home orders are relaxed or lifted – With over 2/3rds of organisations potentially having their workforce work at home indefinitely, finding methods to keep them engaged, motivated and focused on tasks are going to be vital for ongoing success. This is where a measured and structured Learning and Development strategy comes into play.
- Rapidly built and engaging content – Speed and personalisation are fundamental
- Learners to be connected to one another – People learn from people. Whether it is through formal coaching and mentoring, peer review or simply discussion, we are tribal and therefore seek involvement in communities from which we can learn.
- Clear outcomes for learning – For us, if it doesn’t have an aim, learning outcomes and designated, time-based milestones, it is not learning.
- Employees to be empowered to share their expertise – When we help others learn, we not only develop our teaching skills, we also embed our own learning and understanding.
- A place to ask your organisations experts questions and receive answers, which are then available to everyone – When we are learning we will always have questions, to be able to ask someone significantly helps our development, however, having accessible Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) is also of use, especially when a quick turnaround is required.
- Make critical knowledge easily accessible – As with the FAQs, having information that will build knowledge, easily accessible, will support the learner greatly as they can get the information when they really need it.
- Content can be found quickly when it’s needed – As per the above, you need to be able to lay your hands on the information quickly too!
