Did you know that for every dollar spent on training, employee productivity is enhanced 30%? This is why top organizations are spending an astounding amount of money on learning and development for their employees. Take Deloitte, for instance, a company that spends $2 billion on training 4,000 employees for modern tech jobs, such as those related to AI and NLP.
But for most companies, knowing how to provide the right skills training to their employees is also a major challenge. This leaves companies often scrambling to find the right solutions to upskill and reskill their workforce, at the right pace and with the best outcomes. This is exactly where adaptive learning can help.
Why Adaptive Learning for L&D Teams?
Traditional corporate training methods tend to be inflexible, if not inefficient. Take the in-person lectures, against the backdrop of projector slides. Not only does it get boring really quickly, it completely fails to address the learning needs of the modern employee. Employees today want personalized, just in time content, tailored to their needs and career path. They also want training that is interactive and engaging, rather than being passive recipients.
Today’s employees are even willing to switch jobs if these needs are not addressed. Unfortunately, learning and development teams are often tied down by a tired tech stack and an even more challenging management process.
This is where adaptive learning comes in.
With training being provided with the help of modern technology, it also appeals to the tech-savvy employees of today.
In short, adaptive learning is what Model T was to the automobile sector in 1908, the need of the hour.
How Adaptive Learning Helps in Skill Building
So, how does adaptive learning benefit an organization? Here are some of the most important advantages:
- Flexible Learning
Work-life balance is one of the most important elements that millennials and Gen Z employees look for in a job. In fact, 16.8% millennials judge their career opportunities on the basis of work-life balance. This is what adaptive learning provides. Adaptive learning gives employees the freedom to choose the place and time of learning, be it at home, during lunch, or even while commuting. Moreover, since the learning is personalized and interactive, it keeps the employee motivated and engaged to complete training modules.
- Agile Training
With adaptive learning, there is also the advantage of faster paced training, backed by robust analytics. With the help of these analytics, areas that require improvement can be identified. These analytics allow the L&D department to fine tune the training programs. This leads to more efficient skill development within a shorter duration. In fact, adaptive learning takes around 50% less time than traditional approaches.
- Fit for All Styles and Needs
No two employees are identical. Everyone likes to do things at their own speed, while some might need more time than their peers to grasp certain concepts. This issue is well addressed through adaptive learning. The training process is adapted to the learning behavior of each employee, leading to improved training outcomes. Employees also have a choice when it comes to content types. They can choose to learn through videos, gamification, microlearning and much more.
- Removal of Unconscious Incompetence
Unconscious incompetence is when an employee thinks that they know something but, in reality, they do not. Since they are unaware of their shortcomings, it can lead to serious losses in the workplace. With adaptive learning, the focus is on employees accessing learning on their own, continuously. This helps in eliminating unconscious incompetence.
