Digital Learning Solutions for Business Continuity
In the wake of the current global pandemic COVID-19, remote working has become a necessity and for many organisations, key to ensuring business continuity. Once the spread of COVID-19 has been effectively controlled and the emergent threat passes, it is likely that organisations will continue to support remote working due to its unique benefits. However, ensuring staff working remotely feel valued and remain engaged is both vital and difficult. Research shows that the majority of employees list Professional Development as a key consideration when applying for or remaining in a role. Clearly defined development programs enable staff to improve their skillsets, capability and capacity for innovation, adding benefit to both individual and organisation.
The face-to-face delivery of training was seemingly on the decline long before COVID-19 prevented us from being able to sit in a room together. Digital learning solutions (DLS) have progressed significantly over recent years, and offer a cost effective alternative to traditional training formats. If implemented properly, DLS have the potential to provide both local and remote workforces with ongoing supported professional development opportunities. The most important part of that last sentence being the word ‘properly’. Traditional direct instruction style e-learning, still the most common type of digital learning, has lost its shine and no longer meets the expectations of modern learners.
Optimal workplace learning, digital or otherwise, needs to be:
As digital learning solutions become the most feasible option for staff training, organisations need to assess their current offerings and future capacity for implementing learning that achieves the ICARE criteria. Whether it’s webinars, e-learning, microlearning or a blended approach, there are a multitude of excellent digital tools available. Organisations simply cannot afford to cease the professional development and training of their staff- particularly if they’re looking to retain them long term.
Organisations need to ask themselves whether their digital learning solutions are up to the task. If the answer is no, there exists the opportunity to implement significant improvements while their ‘business as usual’ tempo has potentially slowed.
Luckily, duMonde is here to help! We believe that there are no limits to when and where you can learn, and we are committed to providing our customers with a DLS that meets their needs, expectations and budget. We offer a broad range of training and related services including but not limited to; Rapid Digital Conversion, Self-paced e-Learning, Learning and Development Enterprise Partnerships and Training Strategy Development.
