Perhaps even more important is the fact that Millennials are going to take over the workforce soon.
By 2020, Millennials are expected to represent nearly half of the workforce.
This is an important trend, because they not only are comfortable using the technology; they expect to use digital tools.
However, the increase of mobile learning even started in 2004 when researchers noticed that it became more and more complicated to engage students. Organizations experience the same problem: Digitalization is a way to connect to this over-connected generation.
For learning and development professionals, the rise of tech-savvy individuals in the workplace should inform their investments in training and the tools they use.
More importantly, Millennials don’t want to work just to make money; they take learning seriously, and they want to continually advance their capabilities. They’ll be drawn to — and stay with — organizations that provide both.
Get ready for the Millennials now, and get a host of benefits in the process for your current employees, with digital training tools.
