Learnings from the pandemic

10 Apr 2022

If the pandemic has taught us anything, it is that we are resilient and adaptable as humans. We have all had to alter our routines and accommodate new challenges.

As we continue to do so, in terms of Learning and Development, we must leverage eLearning. The statistical benefits of eLearning vitally contributing to organizational growth have been widely reported over the years; proven boost in productivity, increased employee retention rates of up to 60%, an 18% increase in employee engagement and of course, it being cost effective.

According to a study by Brandon Hall Group, it typically takes employees 40 to 60 percent less time to study a particular material via eLearning. This is due to employees being able to access training online whenever they need it, without interrupting their workflow. Also, employees have more control over the learning process and are able to revisit training as needed. Most learners have packed schedules, hence, they prefer bite-sized training – such as videos requiring no more than two to five minutes each.

Additionally, dispersing information to employees across different departments and locations can be time consuming. A more feasible option may be plugging in the module on an eLearning platform, such as a Learning Management System, capable of quickly delivering company-wide information to relevant employees, thereby keeping them on the same page.

The rise of eLearning in a culture of remote work allows Learning and Development interventions to be woven organically into your employees’ calendars and we at Athiya can support you in this endeavor.
