Adapt learning to hybrid working
Hybrid working (the combination of remote working and working at the office) is becoming more and more popular these days. So, L&D trend – or tip – number one is to keep focusing more than ever on training programs suitable for hybrid working. Try to not always rush to classic instructor-led, face-to-face training, but keep exploring creative learning ways for hybrid working, such as mobile and multimedia learning. People can do this whenever and wherever they want!
Embed learning in the flow of work
When planning your L&D strategy, you might be asking yourself the question: “How can I make learning more relevant?” The answer is: by embedding it in your team’s day-to-day job. Microlearning is a good example of learning that can happen within the work environment. It can take place while your team is performing a task or even when they are taking a short break from work. Simply put, integrating learning within the work setting makes it feel more organic. An L&D trend worth exploring in 2022 and beyond if you ask us!
Make learning more personalized
What else is new? Forget about week-long mandatory training sessions. Another eye-catching L&D trend this year is personalized learning. By this, we mean more personalized learning experiences that cater to your employees’ individual needs. The benefits of personalized learning are undeniable: It’s a fantastic way to make people learn more often, retain the knowledge better and apply it faster. It goes without saying that this will have incredibly positive effects on your business’ productivity and your team’s performance! A win-win.
Mobile learning for the win!
Finally, there is one more L&D trend that will remain strong in 2022: mobile learning. It has become inevitable in today’s digital world. And it gained even more popularity as the global pandemic accelerated the shift away from traditional face-to-face training. In 2022, mobile learning will become even more vital to upskill/reskill your team, as your company is navigating through constant change. Now is the perfect time to invest in digital training tools like mobile learning apps. Why? Because they make learning easily accessible for everyone. They enable your team to consume content when and where they want. In short, they help your company to find more time for learning!
Remember, these are only a few L&D trends to keep an eye on. Let’s hope this year will bring many more opportunities for learning and development to ultimately take your business to the next level! And in case you need help, don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
