Why getting upskilled for the future is a great idea

In light of everything that’s happened in the last few months, with the outbreak of Covid-19 and global lockdown, some of you might be thinking; “This remote working thing isn’t going away, is it?”

Well, on the one hand, no. On the other, if it’s a challenge, we can help you adapt!

If your company is used to delivering in-person, co-located training, it might be worth considering getting your trainers upskilled to be as great delivering virtually as they are in a physical classroom.

With this boom in remote working and the new doors of virtual working having been forcefully opened, this trend may become a reality. Where previously, working from home was for the few, that position has been well and truly smashed. Companies have discovered that remote working is not only an option, but a beneficial alternative to co-located working.

While we believe that co-located classroom training may well find some place again once the effects of Covid-19 have settled. For the meanwhile delivering training virtually has become a staple approach in the training roster.

In the long term, switching some or all your training to virtual also offers the following benefits –

So that’s the organisational benefits covered, but what about the benefit to the trainers in your team? Well, if they need convincing, here are a few of the many benefits that getting upskilled to delivering virtually can bring;-

  • They can instantly get back to work, by delivering the backlog of training from recent months and help with virtual onboarding
  • They can also assist people in the journey of getting back to work and helping them to adapt to new circumstances and ways of working within the business
  • Improving their virtual presence also helps to further other key virtual areas such as providing webinars or creating vlogs and podcasts
  • Make the training budget reach further as costs per head are reduced thanks to no travel, no hotels, no meeting venues required
  • Allow trainers to manage their work-life balance better as delivering training virtually allows for less disruption to a working day
  • Learn skills that they can carry proudly into the future and add to their CV
