Learning for Today?s Workforce

The importance of Just-in-Time Learning

With organizations facing increasing global competition and workers finding their roles expanding, the need for talent development is greater than ever. But, in today’s fast-paced and increasingly virtual workplace, learning a new concept or skill can’t always wait for that two-day class at the end of the month. Workers today require easy access to training whenever and wherever they need it to do their jobs.

"...employers should take a hard look at training programs with an eye for future workplace needs. To address the skills gap for the next decade and beyond, education and training must anticipate how technological and global changes will impact the evolving workplace."
-Dr. Tracey Wilen-Daugenti, Vice President and Managing Director, Apollo Research Institute

Organizations are also coming to realize that learning is not a one-time event and that to be an effective learning organization; you need the culture and tools for continuous learning. In fact, in the learning industry research group Bersin & Associates’ The Corporate Learning Factbook® 2012, recognition of the need for “Continual Reinforcement” of learning was one of the key findings. This kind of repeated contact requires a range of formal and informal learning tools—from instructor-led and elearning courses, to online articles, to user-contributed videos and more—in a dynamic environment that is always within easy reach of your workforce.

So...what is the solution?

Just-in-Time learning where learners can access training 24/7 365 days of the year, whenever and wherever they want. You need training that is self-paced with modular learning tools that develop critical knowledge and skills and support ongoing performance in the workplace of today. You need a mixture of articles, videos, activities and quizzes with reporting and follow-up tools.
