If 74% of people think that more people will be working remotely, does that mean we also think people will be trained remotely too?

  1. yes and no……

    ….Whilst some training (perhaps even 'much' or 'most' training) will be undertaken remotely, some will be deliberately managed as face to face to give people the chance to actually meet and be able to have more informal networking opportunities. 

    The "chance to meet up with colleagues from other departments/offices" has always been seen as a beneficial side effect of training courses and I think that this will continue.  Classroom training is not dead…..but it may have gone on a major diet.


  2. Working remotely

    As we see the death of the high street and the way we shop we are also witnessing the death of the workplace.

    Working remotely may be another nail in the coffin of humans actually interacting with each other.

    I remember the good old days when going to work meant leaving the house for 8 hours…give it another 10 years and training will be the same…all blinking video screens and dodgy telephone lines.

    Thankfully I will be almost retitred by then.

  3. Funny old world

    Would you be able to do what you do now by E Learning and using Social Media alone?

    Of course they play a part in modern day learning and development but if we lose the "real" stuff we are in danger of producing a nation full of zombies.
