The trend is increasingly towards the learning company. Indeed, to develop and retain talent, to keep knowledge within the company despite turnover, and to put the HR function at the heart of innovation, you will undoubtedly have to change the way your employees learn and share. Come on, we'll help you. Here are the 5 trends in training:

1- Microlearning and mobile learning remain key trends in training

Among the main trends in training, I ask for microlearning! This means offering training courses based on short, easy-to-use content. Fun and measurable, it can be easily integrated into the employee's daily experience. You can imagine a training "library" to which employees have free access, so that they can be trained quickly, whenever they want. What's more, microlearning is a natural fit with mobile learning. Indeed, if we prefer short, easy-to-use content, it is also because we are consuming more and more content on the move and on smartphones.

2- Video is more than ever at the heart of training

This trend goes hand in hand with microlearning and mobile learning. It is no longer a given that video is the most consumed and most engaging format, so it is necessary to use it more for learning. The objective: to make training content even more visible, attractive and engaging.

3- Social learning

70% of knowledge in companies is informal: social learning allows employees to learn from each other and share their skills. Because employees are experts! They are therefore in the best position to create training modules themselves. Moreover, social learning alleviates the problems linked to turnover: when an employee leaves the company, his or her knowledge does not go with him or her, since it has been shared internally.

4- Gamifying for better teaching

Among the trends in training, let's not forget gamification. Make learning a real game, where you earn points as soon as you train or design training modules. Your training will be all the more attractive and rewarding for it!

5- From training to skills bank

If social learning is based on the idea that your company is made up of experts, these experts must be identified! When an employee successfully completes a training course, it would therefore be wise to share it with the whole company. On the one hand, this is to promote the employee in question, but also to allow other employees to know who has what skills. So when they need expertise on a subject, they will know who to turn to.
