Social distancing and virtual happy hours may have killed your social life. But, they’ve made everyone comfortable with video conferencing software. Even so, many organizations still struggle to replace in-person training.
Many corporate training environments fall victim to stale, boring activities that undermine their learners’ ability to retain knowledge. On top of that, training programs can be expensive. Live instructors, office space, and the time your learners spend in lectures all factor into the expense. Thankfully, there are more effective ways to provide training and development. In this post, we'll go over the most effective modern methods for training.
In the L&D world, digital transformation has been a trending topic for years. However, due to recent circumstances, organizations are forced to launch online learning models nearly overnight.
COVID-19 caught the world off guard. No one was prepared for the economic fallout caused by lockdowns around the world.
The BenchPrep team attended and exhibited at the Training Conference & Expo 2020 in Orlando last week. This conference was nothing short of amazing for us as we had many insightful conversations, learned a lot about the current challenges within the training industry, and soaked up some sun (can you blame us? We’re from Chicago!)
Training activities are continuing to undergo significant re-evaluation and overhauling by L&D departments. Most organizations are shifting in-person trainings to digital learning platforms, but going from one extreme to the other can lead to uncertain outcomes. The challenge of balancing how to introduce digital components into a non-digital curriculum will be the most critical ingredient to developing an effective and efficient program.
