Training Trends Across Generations

When it comes to providing training, companies are paying more and more attention to the trends set by its employees. From catering to an employee’s age to taking the latest technology into consideration, all of these play a key factor in tailoring the professional development of each employee.

The use of technology with every generation and the rapid advances in technology both drive the utilization of it to enhance one’s learning experience. Thus, companies are embracing the training needs of its employees and increasing the use of technology to enhance employee development programs.
Generational age gaps have become the influencers of change within an employee’s learning experience. According to an article published by Society for Human Resource Management entitled “Are Training Trends Driven by Youth or Technology?, changes in career and life goals are other generational differences that play a part in driving new trends in training and development programs. Maintaining an appropriate balance between life at work and home is a trend among both Baby Boomers and Millennials.
