As learning patterns continue to shift, companies are struggling to keep up. This article highlights why digital learning is the future for all companies.
Historically, companies have relied on in-person learning models for their employees. This involved providing classroom training, which was both time- consuming and costly to manage. Participants were required to be physically present at the training, often leading to time away from work and additional travel expenses. These limitations meant that only a select few could participate, making learning an exclusive opportunity rather than an accessible one.
It’s no surprise that training managers are becoming increasingly frustrated with this approach.
The rise of digital learning in a world of hybrid work
It’s becoming increasingly clear that face-to-face learning is losing ground. From Apollo to BTA, more and more training managers are opting for digital learning over traditional forms. This is particularly true for companies with high labor turnover and a diverse workforce. According to a study by IBM, employees learn five times more material in online learning courses compared to traditional classroom settings.
So why is this shift happening now? The pace of change is accelerating and the need to build skills and be agile in a world of hybrid work is greater than ever. Contributing factors such as an aging workforce, generational preferences, the economy, environmental factors, and the COVID-19 pandemic have all pushed learning and development teams to embrace digital learning.
Digital learning has arrived
The way we work has undergone a fundamental change. It is time for your business to change as well, because the future of learning is digital. A transition to digital learning will divide companies into two groups:
- Companies who are creating impactful e-learning environments through a new kind of digital learning solution. They are likely to save a significant amount of time and money, retain their talented employees, and attract new ones. According to a report by Training Magazine, companies that use e-learning tools and strategies save an average of 50- 70% compared to traditional classroom training.
- Companies who are trying to stick to classroom training. They run the risk of falling behind by wasting time and money, losing talented employees, and being unable to recruit new ones. A survey by Deloitte found that 70% of employees believe that on-the-job training and development opportunities would influence their decision to stay with a company.
There is no doubt that every industry is undergoing a shift. The best companies have already reinvented themselves by moving away from face-to-face learning, and for good reason. These statistics suggest that digital learning can provide significant benefits for companies, including increased employee retention, as well as cost savings and other advantages.
Imagine a future without manual and repetitive tasks
Picture a future where manual and repetitive tasks are a thing of the past, and you finally have the time to focus on creating real value. This new way of thinking changes everything, from onboarding to reskilling, upskilling, and talent development in general.
Your employees now have better access to learning, and the learning experience has significantly improved thanks to personalization options and data.
Every employee has different needs, works in different places, and times, and has different working styles, including remote work.
In the past, face-to-face learning was manually managed using:
- A variety of often non-integrated systems.
- Overly complicated or inadequate solutions (such as HRIS, ERP, SharePoint, Moodle, or other legacy LMS).
- Many Excel worksheets and extensive paperwork.
Now, with digital learning, everything is automatically managed using Coursy LMS, which is integrated with your HR system.
Many companies desire digital learning, but it may be difficult, if not impossible, to achieve without an LMS.
