Online Learning for Employees Now and in the Future
The COVID-19 global pandemic changed the way workplaces function, and every part of the employee experience was affected, including training. Everything that could be done remotely moved online, leading companies to try digital learning en masse. Now, with office doors open again, the question becomes: What is the future of online learning in the workplace?
Rather than dismissing this question in an effort to return to “normal,” companies should think about their experiences during the enforced separation of the pandemic and consider what practices to keep.
After all, there are everyday benefits associated with online learning beyond its role as a safe training method amid lockdown scenarios. Companies have gotten a taste of those advantages, and now they have a chance to make them permanent.
