Re-Examining Your Organization’s Training Strategy In The Wake Of A Global Pandemic

2020 has certainly been an eye-opening year for organizations and their training strategy. People from all around the world faced months of stay-at-home orders, travel restrictions and social distancing. Consequently, in terms of training strategy, businesses need to answer a very important question: What will organizations do as we approach a phase of viral response that will likely include multiple waves of varied states of alert, according to the threat levels across multiple geographies?

The truth is that corporate L&D teams were quick to respond to initial changes in the working conditions of employees. However, most of those responses were just short-term modifications to adapt quickly to the new conditions. So, which is the optimal training strategy?

Many have observed that a post-pandemic world may well be shaped differently. Organizations have significant financial incentives to explore shifting employees to partial or full-time remote status. The rapid eLearning industry was built on the notion that persistent, on-demand training materials could lower costs and improve access to learning content.

On the other hand, for those who have been delaying the shift from face-to-face to virtual instruction, the added pressure has clearly come. More precisely, with many estimating an ongoing impact for 18-24 months, it is certainly time to consider how your training strategy can and should change to meet these new challenges.

Join Dr. Allen Partridge, Head of Evangelism for Adobe Digital Learning Solutions for this investigation of training strategy in the wake of the pandemic.

Attendees in this session will learn:

  • How much change can your organization handle during and after the global pandemic?
  • How might you evolve your learning culture and meet the needs of your learners?
  • How can you shift the responsibility for more parts of the learning process to more of your organization’s experts?
  • What role can social learning and UGC play in a rapidly growing online learning experience?
  • What kind of technology advancements does Adobe provide to help support such efforts?
