E-learning for companies: 5 key trends for 2022

The pandemic has prompted many companies to train their employees as a complement to their work. The current situation has exposed gaps and new opportunities for companies, but these require training in order for employees and companies to derive maximum benefit.

Want to know what the new trends for next year will be? Here are the most important opportunities we have identified:

  • Upskilling y reskilling 

We are talking about the process by which professionals acquire new skills within their professional field, which allows them to update their role and apply for the same profile as a person with more current and competitive knowledge. In addition to working on the skills that employees already possess and being able to achieve new roles in their job. This trend will allow the promotion of people in their jobs and the retention of talent for companies.

  • Flexible e-learning platforms

During the “new normal” after COVID-19, companies have realised how important it is to have an online training platform to meet the needs of professionals. These platforms must be adapted to the objectives and needs of the companies. In Classgap for Enterprise we do not provide a 100% e-learning service, we take advantage of the benefits offered by the online methodology to make training more flexible, but with the personalisation and monitoring of classroom training. Our classes take place in a ‘Virtual Classroom’ where the student and the teacher can have a totally bidirectional communication, as if it were a face-to-face class. This space is used to carry out all the practical activities they need, such as exchanging documents and attending class in the simplest, quickest and most efficient way possible.

  • Online modality to facilitate work-life balance

After the confinement, many have continued to opt for the online format. With the advancement of new technologies, training processes are much simpler and better results are obtained. Online training will continue to be a useful tool, especially during the “new normal” and will allow companies to improve their training performance if they wish to do so.

  • Emphasis on employee experience

Retaining talent is one of the constant challenges facing companies today, so many will be paying attention to the work environments and company culture they present to the world. Increasingly, professionals are looking for inclusive, fun places to work, with opportunities for all, even while teleworking.

  • Conflict resolution through training

Resolving labour conflicts, preventing them and detecting them is possible with training. It is important that organisations realise that solving these problems is key to maintaining productivity. It is becoming increasingly difficult to stop the replacement of human resources by process automation. What will make it possible for human value to stand out will be soft skills.

What is the best mix of training for your company?

Trends apply to all sectors, including corporate training. It’s important to bear in mind that training for employees is one of the keys to attracting and retaining talent in your business environment. For a company to be highly valued by its employees, it must offer training for its employees. What training is most in demand? The answer will depend very much on the area of business, but there are combinations of training that are often in high demand, both by companies and their employees.

Languages are still at the top of the list of the most demanded training, however, one of the most common combinations is languages and soft skills. Learning a foreign language is beneficial for the employee, but if he or she does not have sufficient communication skills, all this learning will be in vain. Therefore, training in public speaking, leadership and assertiveness are good complements to the training of your employees.

Why offer training to my employees? 

  • Soft Skills training will help in decision-making, anticipation, group work or the resolution of unforeseen events in the company.
  • It is a lure to attract the most talented and qualified professionals.
  • In-company training aims to integrate the employee as much as possible into the company and to change the employee’s concept of the company.
  • Increasing the level of job satisfaction (e.g. getting a promotion).
  • Because the benefit is for the employee and for the company, which will have a trained and happy team.

What training should every company offer its employees?

Corporate training is an investment that will facilitate the development of the challenges of the future and help employees to be prepared to face them. Employees perceive it as something positive, an opportunity for personal and professional growth offered by the company.

Don’t know what training to offer your employees? Each business may have different needs, here are the training courses most in demand by companies.

  • Language training: this is always at the top of the list… English continues to be a barrier for many workers, but over time it has become a requirement for access to senior positions.
  • Business leadership training: A course on the tools for managing, motivating and delegating the actions of all the pyramids of the team.
  • Digital Marketing training: this is an area that has grown a lot in a very short time. This is because all companies need to adapt as quickly as possible to the new tastes and needs of their consumers.

Cybersecurity training: How to learn to protect your business

Cybersecurity is a global concern for businesses across all sectors and industries, threatening not only their security and reputation, but also their growth, profitability and even future viability. Invest in cybersecurity training? Yes, better safe than sorry, and we’re sure you don’t want to have to invest in repairing any damage that may occur if you’re not prepared.

Training and experience is protection against an attack on your business. Training your employees in cyber security will give you peace of mind that your business is protected and empowering your employees, by training them to spot the signs of a cyber attack without becoming nervous, is the best way to mitigate the problem. It is hard to think of a more critical threat to any business at this time, so it is recommended that organisations invest in effective training in this area.
