Importance of the Virtual World in HR – Human Capital Review
Posted by: Alex Linley
Pleased to share with you this article just published in Human Capital Review on the Importance of the Virtual World in HR. In this article, I discuss how we are using virtual delivery of training and development for programmes including Women in Leadership and performance management, with clients including Thomson Reuters and Standard Chartered Bank.
With restrictions on travel budgets, the emergence of new and effective ways of virtual working, and the realisation that transfer of learning can be effectively and powerfully achieved through virtual learning. As a result, helping people to stay in their workplace and apply their learning and insights immediately through development interventions that are embedded in their job and work environment is the way of the future.
No more do we need to end training or development sessions with “What will you do to apply this when you’re back in the office in Monday?”, since virtual learning allows learners to learn and develop in real time, without needing to leave their workplace.
As technology advances ever further, the power and the impact of the virtual world in HR will only become ever more apparent.
