Top 5 L&D Trends in USA :

  • Less Text, More Video: Video has become the communication method of choice—and the same trend is happening in corporate environments. Driving that influx of enterprise video is a confluence of technology advances and simple human nature. Video is simply more engaging and impactful than text, and people retain more information when they watch video. Video activates more parts of our minds with visual content that can more easily hold our ever-shortening attention spans.
  • Baby Boomers are Ready to Drop Out: It is found that even while people are holding onto their jobs later into life, the aging American workforce already is seeing significant turnover. According to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 10,000 Baby Boomers retire, on average, every single day. Some industries are feeling the effects of that trend more than others—especially real estate, manufacturing, insurance, and health care, four of the largest industries in the country that also have the oldest median employee age.With so many employees leaving their jobs due to better job prospects, retirement, on boarding, knowledge retention and management training will be critical.
  • Preserve Institutional Knowledge: Recording and Sharing Subject Matter Expertise : When it comes to sharing information on technologies and processes, video makes it easier to show rather than tell. With social knowledge sharing, video can benefit an organization twice:
    • First, by recording answers to frequently asked questions, subject matter experts save time that otherwise would be spent on repeated face-to-face inquiries, giving them more time get work done.
    • Second, capturing and sharing that expertise in a corporate video library also helps to ensure that vital information doesn’t eventually leave with the employee.
  • Video for More Effective Onboarding: New hires have lot to learn from the moment they step through the door on their first day. Video solves that problem, making it an ideal tool to support and scale onboarding programs. With just a standard laptop Webcam and a video platform, companies can create a library of new hire training videos with tutorials and best practices for every role across the company. Video also can be used to provide new employees and their families with on-demand information about company benefits and enrollment procedures.
