Virtual Training and “New Normal”

Training and development has always been a structured and semi-predictable formula using age-old formats. With the rise of millennial workers and their affinity for social media and quick and “now” learning methods, the training and development organization is shifting from traditional layouts to online and in-time learning. Many large companies with high engagement, such as Amazon and Google, have instituted new learning methods for their budding geniuses and use technology in a savvy, social way. With training as fluid as sitting with a manager and learning something new at the exact time it’s needed, completing the task independently, and then being critiqued during a “lessons learned” session, employees are starting to respond to training that doesn’t require the traditional training request.
