How to Reimagine Induction and Onboarding Training for a Hybrid Workplace

As companies make their way through The Great Resignation in the wake of the pandemic, they must prepare for the wave of onboarding that will occur on the other side. Knowing that many workers will either want or have to stay remote will change how companies approach onboarding new talent. But those changes can lead to a better experience for the learners and better results for the business.

Learning in a Hybrid Work Environment

Over the last two years, organizations sorted out their response to the pandemic environment and built their strategies around a workforce where a large portion work remotely. This is having an impact on L&D teams where the bulk of learning occurred in person for years. Companies had to figure out how to simultaneously meet the learning needs of on-site and remote workers, while addressing the business’ changing needs.

Hybrid Work Requires a Human Touch

Brandon Hall Group teamed up with Smartchoice Preferred Provider Class Technologies to present a webinar that looks at ways to keep the human connection in what has become a somewhat isolated and remote work world. In situations where people can’t gather together in person for learning, it is critical to think about how technology can be used to approximate that connectivity. The webinar will explore what worked and what hasn’t during the pandemic and its impact on the learning culture.

In a Remote World, Bring the Classroom to the Learners

The biggest challenge with adopting classroom-specific technology is that it presented yet another platform for employees to adjust to amid an almost entirely virtual work life. Every aspect of the employee experience now came with some virtual/digital component that people had to figure out, which presented a growing taxation of the time available to do their actual jobs.

How to Leverage DE&I Training to Build an Equitable Workplace

A big challenge for most companies when it comes to DE&I training is that they are applying outdated models to address what are usually new and difficult concepts for many learners. The L&D team itself must face its own biases in the design, delivery and evaluation of training. EI Design helps clients to shift L&D’s training mindset, in the design, delivery and management of DEI training initiatives. Without this, organizations will fail to instill diversity, equity or inclusion — especially in today’s dynamic hybrid workplace.

Leveraging Learning Technology to Drive Organizational Readiness

The LatitudeLearning solution brings skills, training, certifications and other critical business elements together in one place. The platform was built to allow individuals to see just where they stand at any given moment with the skills they need for current or future roles. They can also see their progress in training for those skills and easily get to courses and materials they need to move forward. This lets the skills requirements drive the learning journey.
