In an attempt to identify the top trends around corporate employee training in the U.S., we searched for news articles, press releases, media reports, and expert publications on the same.

From Part 02
  • "Many organizations are nixing one-size-fits all training plans and supplying employees with the specific learning they need for their role and location—when and how they want it. "
  • "Research shows this approach increases engagement, which in turn helps organizations meet and exceed their long-term goals."
  • "Now that costs are dropping for virtual and augmented reality, it’s branching out beyond the arcade crowd and across a wide range of topics and business applications, including compliance training."
  • "“Technology is enabling our need to be mobile. We want to ensure that learning matches our lifestyle.”"
  • "Training should be specific to each learner. It is unnecessary to have every employee taking the same hour-long training"
  • "The web is becoming more used as a means of finding instant information, with more than 70% of employees turning to search engines to learn what they need for their jobs."
  • "On-demand training taps into the motivation of your employees to be better and faster at their jobs, and supports what they’re already doing – taking control of their own learning."
  • "Compliance training trends will see an increase of training materials created for the points-of-need of employees and addressing real issues in real-time"
  • "Accessibility should be at the forefront of any L&D team’s minds, and any strong LMS should allow your team to dictate your specific needs for bespoke eLearning content."
  • "A mobile-optimised LMS interface allows your teams to access their training anytime, anywhere no matter their device of choice."
  • "E-learning is a trend that will continue to grow in the coming years. E-learning is a learning system and electronic sources such as computers, and the Internet is used to do this type of training...This type of training is best suited for providing compliance training."
  • "It is done to increase the engagement and make it more exciting for the learner. It is becoming more and more popular these days. Therefore, it is crucial to introduce gamification in HR."
  • "Understandably, they feel that their critical and potentially life-saving OSHA-compliance training should not be equivalent to Donkey Kong. What they don’t realize is that gamification is simply a process of building a progressive reward system into training that imitates modern video games."
  • "Employees would agree that they don’t have the time to take away from their primary jobs to get the training. Delivering your training on multiple platforms, such as classroom, mobile and on-demand, can help eliminate the time crunch for busy employees."
  • "Compliance needs to embrace and adopt emerging technologies such as natural language processing and artificial intelligence (AI) to enhance their employees’ skills and knowledge, improve their productivity, and help them deal with new challenges in areas such as data privacy and third-party regulation.
