In a recent Bersin by Deloitte report, it was stated that 80% of CEO’s believe upskilling is their most pressing challenge. A Manpower report states, 69% of U.S. companies report talent shortages. This reaffirms the message that retraining and upskilling are critical to the modern workforce.
However, large workloads and packed schedules impose a barrier to providing the learning needed to address the upskilling needs of today’s hybrid workforce. The workforce of today requires people to learn on the go. It also requires giving people the ability to control when and where they participate in their professional development. For the learning professional this means delivering support and reinforcement programs that are produced in manageable bites, giving people a chance to reflect and apply lessons without disruption to the workflow.
By providing spaced learning through dripped applications, we give knowledge a greater chance of sticking and give the people a better chance of knowledge application. By doing so we create a win-win for the people and the business.
Here we will be working with three common different drip delivery platforms; email, blogs, chatbots to demonstrate the combined value of chunked and self-directed microlearning content.
