The impact of the shift to global remote work or reduced staff due to COVID-19’s presence grows every day.
While there have been some benefits from the change, some employees have reported being more efficient by working at home. There have been some challenges to keep employees engaged and positive.
Meeting the challenge of professionally training employees while remote also has been a challenge.
McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm, suggests treating the current challenge of job training during COVID-19 as a “design opportunity” instead of a learning problem.
This allows organizations to set priorities for essential learning and focus on how to address them under the current circumstances.
For instance, designing shorter training sessions and developing the training sessions into a series can be more impactful instead of requiring employees to review several hours of video training in a day.
