“Today’s workforce are accustomed to on-demand services, with almost all information available at their fingertips”
It can be tough to start letting go of control in the workplace, but a digital learning hub gives employees the power to not only curate the learning content that is relevant to them, but to also work through it at their own pace. Choice is a great thing, but best served in moderation. While a digital hub opens up a world of possibilities for users, it also allows L&D to set parameters that, with clear communication, can point employees in the right direction while still giving them the freedom of learning as they choose.
A standout problem with traditional classroom learning is the expectation for large groups of people to learn at the same pace as one another and in the same ways – that simply isn’t possible. Utilising a digital platform means learning assets can be universally accessible and appeal to those with different learning styles, whether people prefer to read text-based materials or flick through visuals.
The freedom that a digital learning platform provides goes far beyond the workplace. The sense of employee empowerment is enhanced by allowing them to take control over their development – they don’t have to cram it in to their usual nine-to-five schedule and risk rushing a process that needs as much time as it can be afforded.
As more and more commuters use their journey to work to get a headstart on their day, clearing their inbox before they reach the office, giving employees the opportunity to carry out their learning means it is less likely to be overlooked. Additionally, they’re not required to be in a specific place at a specific time, with a specific person required to conduct the session.
Today’s workforce are accustomed to on-demand services, with almost all information available at their fingertips. It is crucial that the curated learning material employers want them to receive is accessible at the touch of a button.
