Developing new skills under lockdown with digital training
The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the daily lives of people across the world. Over 3.9 billion people – almost half of the global population – have been asked to remain at home to prevent its spread (Euronews, 2020)
It is still too early to say how long the crisis will last, or when workers will be able to safely return to normal office life. The interruption of our standard work routines, however, doesn’t have to put an end to career development. Why not use this time to develop new skills?
Getting ahead in a changing world
To keep pace with a rapidly evolving professional landscape, continuous learning is essential. Digitalization, globalization and other mega-trends are creating entirely new jobs, and radically altering how existing ones are performed.
One in three workers feel they lack the skills needed to succeed in their current role, and 40% of employers in G20 countries report difficulty finding candidates with the right skillset (OECD, 2020). Now more than ever, training will be critical to weathering these changes and benefitting from technological progress.
Bureau Veritas offers a number of digital training solutions to help you and your team acquire the knowledge and skills needed to take on the challenges of today and tomorrow. You can learn about new risks to the enterprise, brush up on auditor skills or find about recently-introduced management systems.
Digital training offers unique advantages
Even in more normal times, there are several compelling advantages to digital training.
Digital training allows for a user-led experience. Digital formats enable you to engage with material at your own pace, across various devices (e.g. computer, tablet, smartphone), and from the comfort and safety of your home.
Education is not one-size-fits-all. Unlike classroom training, digital training encompasses a wide variety of different media and teaching methods (e.g. video, lecture, reading, activities). This allows you to engage with the material in the way that best suits your particular learning style and preferences.
Digital learning options allow you to track how well you are absorbing the material. Integrated quizzes and assessments provide real-time, actionable insights into knowledge retention, identifying areas for improvement.
