From boardroom to bedroom, in an increasingly dynamic, agile and remote business environment, education and training is changing rapidly...

Over the last 12 months, globally over 1.2 billion children in 186 countries forced to adapt to out-of-classroom learning: culturally we’ve seen a heightened awareness, and requirement for high quality remote learning. However, it’s not just the classroom that’s been impacted. As businesses continue to move rapidly into the era of hybrid and home-working, they’ll to need to consider how to transfer this shift in education and training to the working world. Many global corporates have and continue to adopt e-learning as their preferred training method, long before the pandemic. The trainer in the board room delivering a scripted session is phasing out, in favour of an engaging, effective digital method which has numerous benefits outside of purely it’s adaptability to change.
Pre-dispositions of e-learning often centre around dull, text heavy slides, with questionable stock imagery, and check boxes; but this is certainly not the case. E-Learning in the current day has the flexibility to integrate multiple interactive elements and media types to create a genuine, immersive and enjoyable experience.
It’s now more important than ever before to adopt remote methods of carrying out business, from interviews, to meetings, to training, social activities and everything in-between. However, as we return to a sense of cultural normality, there’s no doubt the ‘new normal’ will carry over in the way people work, when and where we work has never been more adaptable. Businesses worldwide will need to explore better, more agile ways of working and training from anywhere in the world, and there’s several reasons to adopt and continue to adopt creative, digital activations within the e-learning space.
There’s no argument to the benefits to the human interaction of training in the workplace, and by no means should, or will e-learning completely replace this; but in the ever-evolving working landscape adopting these training methods will no doubt have hugely beneficial impacts across businesses and should become commonplace for companies and employees globally.
