Virtual Training allows your business to reap operational cost savings, expand recruitment options and leverage technology.

Virtual training occurs through a simulated environment. Often the instructor and the learner are in two different locations, but they do not have to be. Some virtual training is conducted in-house, individually or within groups, through the use of desktop and mobile devices. However, remote virtual training has become increasingly common given our current work-from-home climate. Businesses are being forced to adapt and evolve their training methods or be left behind.

E-learning is a widely popular way to develop an employee’s career, but there are disadvantages to not being able to meet and train face-to-face. Many prefer human interaction and struggle with simulated training courses. New learning methods can be overwhelming for those who are used to traditional ways. Some employees are not as tech-savvy as others, and therefore will not pick up virtual training methods so quickly. Companies need to acknowledge this hurdle and should spend an appropriate amount of time focusing on developing a virtual training plan that runs smoothly for all employees, whether they are new hires or seasoned veterans.

Training can be greatly improved by properly introducing advancements in technology. The ability for employees to quickly learn and apply the knowledge to their daily tasks is critical for the success of a business. Those who opt to learn at their own pace actually prefer this method. What is lacking in personal appearance is made up for with convenience, as well as instant feedback and online assessments.

Virtual training is here to stay, and as it grows it’s important to stay on top of the trends. Keldar Leadership provides multiple virtual training options that will enable your company to thrive during the most challenging times.
