Managers can’t push the pause button on capability building, so the moment belongs to virtual learning. Some tactics and strategies can help.

SUMMARY

Companies across the globe have postponed or canceled in-person meetings as a response to the coronavirus outbreak, which is having an impact on workplace learning, making it one of the hardest-hit business activities.

Learning leaders can have several key aspects to boost employee protection, adapt programs and delivery, and settle and expand online live learning. The paper notes that online learning programs were already gaining popularity before the COVID-19 crisis.

It is too early to determine how COVID-19 will impact the quick adoption of digital learning, according to the research. However, it's been clear that keeping employees safe and risk reduction is a priority and has displaced cost as the main driver behind digital learning.

The paper suggests that companies should create a cross-functional COVID-19 learning-response team that concentrates its efforts on practicing decision making and communication under several potential scenarios.

Learning leaders who implement a well-designed response plan for COVID-19 can reduce the disease’s impact on capability building and ensure the safety of employees and learners. Boosting learning opportunities can also be useful as a bright spot for companies through the coronavirus crisis.
