how digital learning can drive your corporate and people strategy.

Digital learning has become much more than PowerPoint and uninspiring click-through platforms. Effective digital learning has the proven ability to drive an organisation’s people and corporate strategy by becoming a strategic platform in it’s own right. 

In the digital age, technology and education have combined to create new opportunities for learning and growth. The adoption of digital learning has become a crucial component of modern organisations, providing the flexibility, accessibility and scalability needed to meet the demands of today’s rapidly changing world. Thanks to huge technological advancements in delivery mediums and content, digital learning has become a crucial aspect of talent development, creating new opportunities for employees to grow and develop their skills. In this article, we will explore how digital learning can play a critical role in driving an organisation’s strategy at the scale and pace needed.

1 – Align learning content: By creating digital learning content that is aligned with the organisation’s goals and objectives, employees can gain a better understanding of how their role fits into the larger picture. This can help them see how their work contributes to the organisation’s success and drives its overall strategy forward.

2 – Personalised learning paths: Digital learning platforms can offer personalised learning paths, which enable employees to focus their learning on areas that are most relevant to their role and the organisation’s strategy.

3 – Gamification: Gamification can create engaging, interactive learning experiences that help employees understand the organisation’s goals and objectives. For example, a game could be designed to simulate a business challenge, and employees would have to work together to find a solution.

4 – Employee engagement: Digital learning can help to increase employee engagement by making learning more accessible and convenient. This can help employees to feel more connected to the organisation and its goals, which can improve their motivation and performance.

5 – Communication channels: Digital learning platforms often include communication channels, such as discussion boards and chat rooms, which can be used to share information about the organisation’s strategy and plans. This can help employees stay informed and up-to-date on changes and developments within the organisation.

6 – Executive buy-in: When senior leaders are involved in digital learning initiatives, it sends a strong message to employees about the importance of continuous learning and development. This can help build a learning culture that aligns with the organisation’s strategy and goals.

7 – Data-driven insights: Digital learning platforms can provide data-driven insights into employee learning and performance, which can help organisations to identify areas for improvement and make informed decisions about their learning and development programs. With digital learning, it is easier to track employee progress and measure the impact of training and development programs on business outcomes.

8 – Continuous feedback: Digital learning can provide employees with regular feedback on their progress, which can help to keep them on track and aligned with the organisation’s goals. This feedback can also be used to identify areas where employees need additional support or development.

9 – Integration with performance management: Digital learning can be integrated with performance management systems, which can help organisations to assess employee skills and competencies and align them with the organisation’s strategy and goals. 

10 – Cross-functional collaboration: Digital learning can promote cross-functional collaboration by enabling employees from different departments and teams to work together on learning activities and projects. This can help to foster a shared understanding of the organisation’s strategy and goals and improve alignment across the company.

Digital learning can drive an organisation’s people strategy by attracting the right talent, improving employee retention, communicating the organisation’s strategy and developing employees, all at the pace and scale needed for effective and sustainable growth. Digital learning is a scalable platform, making it easier to reach large numbers of learners with consistent, high-quality content. This is particularly important for businesses, where it can be challenging to provide training and development opportunities to employees spread across multiple locations. With digital learning, companies can easily provide consistent training to employees worldwide, ensuring that everyone has access to the skills and knowledge they need to succeed. 

Research shows that companies can save up to 50% on training costs by using digital learning compared to traditional in-person training methods. These benefits have led to a significant increase in investment in digital learning. According to a recent survey, 80% of companies plan to increase their investment in digital learning over the next three years. This is no surprise following a recent study which found that companies that invest in digital learning can see a return on investment of up to $30 for every dollar spent. Organisations that embrace digital learning as a critical component of their people and corporate strategy are future-proofing their organisations to meet the challenges of the future and achieve success in an ever-changing business environment.

Caleb Foster Digital Learning Geek
After gaining more than 20 years of experience in operational excellence in the hospitality and digital learning sectors, Caleb wanted to rid the world of dull ‘click next’ and ineffective elearning and solve the epidemic of uninspiring digital learning. Mindboost began back in 2016, when Caleb, saw a huge opportunity to create better quality digital learning content that connects with learners emotionally to encourage a desire to learn more. Caleb realised there was a lack of true understanding of an organisation’s culture and inner-working when learning providers were presented with a request from a client. So, the Mindboost team get under the cover of an organisation’s performance need and ultimately look to connect with learners emotionally. When a learner is connected emotionally, they tend to start believing in a change, this then generates a feeling and makes a greater impact within the organisation than just conveying information.
