Driving Learner Engagement in the Hybrid Workplace

L&D must establish itself as a guiding light in unfamiliar waters. This is critical as organizations see an increased demand for upskilling and reskilling to improve internal talent mobility — especially since just more than one-third of companies believe they are prepared to develop the skills they will need in the future. Business is moving too fast and the workforce is too busy, distracted and now geographically dispersed for traditional training models to be completely effective.

Brandon Hall Group to Study How Organizations Can Supercharge Learning

Brandon Hall Group believes that if organizations take an outcome-based approach to learning, employees will become more engaged in learning, see learning as more of an asset than a distraction, change their behaviors and improve performance. In return, businesses will be able to align — or realign — learning with business goals, gain a better understanding of learning’s ROI and demonstrate learning’s impact on the organization.

Upskilling, Reskilling and Employee Retention

Instead of adhering to a skills taxonomy that is carved in stone, companies must build out a strong foundational set of skills to create a learning environment that allows them to adapt as things change. Rather than trying to look into a crystal ball to divine future skills, they should be positioned to build those skills as the need arises.

Simplifying the Complex: Skillsoft Percipio for Microsoft Teams

Employers have been trying to crack the code on delivering learning in the flow of work for some time now. It can be extremely challenging to bring the right learning to people when, where, and how they are working. Much of the dialogue on learning in the flow of work has centered on the individual, but this needs to evolve. It turns out, rather unsurprisingly, that the majority of the work that gets done is accomplished by teams.

Seeing is Believing: Video for Learning

For all the talk of adapting learning to meet the natural ways people learn, video seems like a no-brainer. We all watch videos, probably at least once a day. Whether it’s to get a quick how-to or observe a cat falling into a fish tank, online videos are a ubiquitous element of everyday life. The technology to incorporate video abounds, especially now that smartphones record video in high definition. Video can be used as pre-work for a class, an element within a course, as a follow-up activity and as a part of a continuous, flow-of-work learning experience.

Delivering Learning Value Greater than the Sum of Its Parts

The answer to true personalization for performance is generally not found in replacing an LMS or in adding an LXP. The answer lies in adding the right technology to these important learning ecosystem pieces that will enhance the experience in the ways that the learner and the business will benefit most. This includes capturing granular learning data to understand exactly what learning mastery has occurred and personalizing the learning journey through AI technology at a much deeper level than simply suggesting learning topics that may be of interest. Personalization done the right way (in conjunction with your LMS and LXP) that leverages an adaptive learning core will lead to greater engagement and far greater insights for improved decision making.
