Big Changes In Employee Training

Chaos brings opportunity.

For those of you who have employee training contracts with larger companies, you probably got the memo: things have changed. A recent report by Deloitte on human capital trends explains some of those changes, including:

• Employee learning is moving toward a more “consumer-like” experience with continuous learning tailored to individual schedules. It’s a great vision, but only 37% of company executives believe their efforts are effective. And that’s after increasing 2015 spending 10% to over $140 billion. Chaos brings opportunity.

• Priorities are moving away from programs and processes and towards interventions, apps, and tools. Instead of designing something and pushing folks through the program, it sounds like trainers are studying people first and then designing structures that deal with the realities at hand.

• Digital formats and part-time employees are also issues forcing transformational changes. The very design of work is adapting to bigger trends. This is no longer a linear process. Think the Wild West.

There are a lot of perspectives at 30,000 feet in this report. Your best approach is to check out the gaps. Look at the issues where executives acknowledge there’s a problem. That’s where the investments will be made—and opportunities are waiting for you.
