Approximately 70% of the learning required for employees to excel in their careers is on-the-job learning. This is why it is essential for businesses to ensure they offer the most effective learning strategies to their employees. The increased speed at which technology evolves and innovation takes place means the options for learning initiatives are rapidly changing. Unlike classic learning frameworks that are event-based offerings, modern learning systems aim to offer training continuously, throughout employees’ careers. The way modern businesses operate necessitates this shift from classic learning frameworks to modern learning systems. It is important, however, to acknowledge that there is no one-size-fits-all approach, and the flexible nature of modern learning systems allows businesses to keep certain features that work well for them. Here are some of the most important benefits of adapting to modern learning systems, as opposed to classic learning frameworks:
Although every employee within an organization is under the umbrella of that business, they each have their own unique skill sets and characteristics. To amplify each employee’s learning experience, businesses must personalize their learning programs based on their team members’ qualities; modern learning systems allow them to do just that.
Modern learning programs allow for engaging content, appealing user interfaces, gamification and rewards. This causes employees to pay more attention to the learning material and increase their active participation. As a result, these engaged learners tend to be 200% more productive in the long run and offer increased success to the business.
Forty years of research has proven to Harvard psychology professor J. Richard Hackman that internal collaboration within teams is the most fundamental factor in ensuring an organization reaches its goals. Modern learning strategies, unlike traditional frameworks, encourage teamwork, and embed team-oriented activities within the learning.
With innovation taking place at a speed faster than ever before, it is important that businesses keep their employees up-to-date. Keeping employees’ knowledge relevant is an integral tool with which businesses can achieve their goals through their training programs.
With mobile devices driving the way, people are becoming increasingly dependent on them and consider other means of communication to be an inconvenience. Modern learning systems, as opposed to traditional frameworks that are typically in a lecture format, give learners the opportunity to engage in their learning experience at any time, and at any place.
In modern learning systems, both employers and employees are able to track their efforts and activities. In addition to being able to identify learners who are not contributing, learning and development professionals can improve the strategies in place, and ensure that each employee has all the tools necessary to succeed.
