Once comprised of Baby Boomers and Gen X-ers, the modern workplace is sporting a new generation of employees – Millennial and Generation Z workers – that will represent 46% of the entire workforce by 2025.
More collectively referred to as “Generation Connected” (Gen C) based on their affinity for digital connectivity, this generation’s preference for collaborative, digital-first, flexible work environments will also cause a shift in workplace knowledge transfer based on their desire for active learning that supports their mobile habits.
Dubbed as the YouTube Generation, Gen C members excessively consume online video. Therefore, video is an essential digital training medium that should be used by training leaders to reach this generation in the workplace.
Some businesses are already getting ahead in meeting this generation’s demand for video to drive both training and remote work strategies. With 76% of respondents claiming they currently use video solutions at work, video conferencing is becoming a business communication standard in the workplace.
Updating the material in your training programs and redesigning the way employees learn will help keep your business up-to-date with the most effective workplace training models for your younger employees, who will someday be leading the business world.
Business leaders are already on their way to providing employees access to learn, collaborate, and stay connected in a way they enjoy, which will ultimately boost employee productivity and help your company remain smart and competitive for the future.
