The foundations of all great businesses are built upon its workforce. An organization’s employees and their competency to adapt and improvise to the market requirements can shape its success. And in today’s digital, ever-transforming and connected world, to expand their impact on the market, businesses need to strengthen within. Employees with new-age skills and knowledge are the need of the hour.

‘By 2020, more than a third of the desired core skill sets of most occupations will be comprised of skills that are not yet considered crucial to the job today.’ – World Economic Forum

In the modern workplace ‘new skills’ are the most in-demand currency. With jobs becoming specialized, rapid automation, digitization and other technologies disrupting traditional roles, effective talent management and upskilling of employees are a must. In 2019, Digital Learning played a key role in businesses training their employees with all the right tools and skill-sets to thrive in their respective industries. Over the course of analysis, reports, market study and conversations with industry leaders, we at Stratbeans realized, developed and implemented e-learning solutions that had a keen focus on developing employees who were ready for the future.

With too many voices and suggestions in the current market, we can say that Digital Learning is facing a problem of plenty. As popular buzzwords get thrown around the challenge is to craft e-learning modules that are user-centric and helps to deliver scalable business impact.

Here are a few Digital Learning trends, crafted by Stratbeans that have changed the way companies upskilled their employees in 2019:

Learning Management System: ATUM-Learning Management System helps corporates manage the learning and training process for their employees. Built with advanced e-learning/simulation / gamified learning launch capability ATUM is a highly efficient tool to host, assign and track computer-based learning.

Skilled and Vocal Talent: Employees who possess the skills needed tools through which they can become more vocal and guide others to learn from them. Articulate 360 is a tool built for such situations. An intuitive and easy-to-use technology, Articulate 360 provides subject leaders with a platform to author their e-learnings.

Mobile Learning: Mobile Phones have become the primary platform on which we explore the internet and its vast sources of information. Thus, it could be considered an ideal step to learn via mobiles. Mobile Offline Player Application – MOBIUS is a digital communication and engagement application which runs in online as well as offline mode. It has become a key innovation through which companies can distribute learning content on mobile devices. Employees can count on it to serve as a one-click repository of learning.

Learning from the Customer: For any brand its biggest source of information and learning should come directly from its customers. Their interactions with the brand, experiences, feedback and perceptions should be aptly captured, studied and improved upon. And that’s where the GoPerform App comes in. Installed on mobiles, it helped salespeople quickly tackle customer feedback in real-time and resolve their complex issues with speed and simplicity. With the help of the GoPerform app, employees have picked up the skills to engage with customers better without breaking away from the conversation.

Customized E-learning: When it comes to learning, no two students are the same. Thus, when upskilling employees, companies can’t be following a formulaic strategy for all. That’s why Stratbeans crafts customized e-learning solutions to make a productive learning environment.

In conclusion, these were few of the prime e-learning trends that led to Stratbeans unearthing key insights and innovations to ensure seamless upskilling of workforces. These digital learning methods had a major role in shaping the way companies upskilled their employees in 2019. The year passing by has seen Digital Learning or Digital Transformation in a situation that can be summarized as a ‘problem of plenty’. As 2020 approaches, the challenge lies in finding the right use case application of these options. Businesses are realizing the importance of investment in learning technologies, and over the new year, they have to look to find more impactful and scalable methods to improve and educate their employees. 2020 is going to be the year of upgraded and upskilled employees taking charge and leading brands towards success and stability. And Digital Learning will be the bedrock of this vision and its implementation.
