Microlearning Is The Way To Learn In The Workplace

Getting the proper training for working in your job is something that the majority of workplaces don’t give enough time for. Nearly 60% of employees receive little to no workplace training and are entirely self-taught with an average of only 24 minutes a week for learning. The vast majority of workers feel that they’re performing much lower than they could due to a lack of learning opportunities. Most would leave for a job that invests more time and effort into employee learning. Workers report they don’t have the skills they need to do their jobs and traditional ways of learning are failing many employees.

Traditional training models that are currently in place are ineffective and create a poor experience for who they’re trying to teach. On average, it takes 7 clicks through various pages to access information they’re trying to learn. But after only 3 clicks, learners perceive a 50% increase in difficulty leading many to never get to where they wanted to go in the first place. Organizations waste time and money creating courses that don’t help employees learn. A small, one-time, in-person training event can cost upwards of $40,000 and creating a 1 hour course can take hours to set up.
