The Covid-19 pandemic was a combination of general guidelines, infection fear, and uncertainty leading to disrupted global value chains and economic activity contraction. The imposition of lockdowns and firms’ closures considerably impacted millions of businesses and their respective workforce worldwide. 50% of Asia-Pacific CEOs feel that reskilling is critical to bridge gaps in capabilities for companies’ future success.
The organizations embraced remote working arrangements by reskilling and upskilling employees to overcome these new challenges. There are skill gaps with the technological advancements becoming a challenge for companies, mainly in health care, manufacturing and construction industries with demand for skilled workers. Businesses, before the pandemic, send the employees to workshops or classes or arrange them on-site. However, in-person learning became challenging or impossible for companies during the pandemic.
Need For L&D Shift In Employee Training
The need for development opportunities for both remote and hybrid workers emerged without losing personal connection. Learning & Development went through dramatic changes, including onboarding, talent management, and training, transforming customer expectations, new market conditions, and the need for a seamless employee experience. Empowering employees to choose when and where to access learning resources increases engagement and self-fulfilment to enhance the work-life balance.
The content repository seems like an efficient solution to manage this humungous undertaking but fails to deliver on it. The new-age learning management systems (LMS) help create role-based and company-specific information at scale with deeper learning progress visibility. Businesses can monitor progress in real-time and ensure the staff collects the necessary knowledge & experience to reach their objectives.

It helps you offer role-specific information at scale, where the organizations have an insight into the visibility of learning progress and make employee training accessible.
