Provide more time for face-to-face contact with eLearning development

By April 2nd, 2012No Comments

Technology offers companies several advantages, but one of the most interesting might actually be the ability to use technology as a last resort. At least, that's the conclusion of a survey conducted for Randstad's Global Workmonitor report. It appears that many Canadian workers don't enjoy having work interrupted by phone conversations, whether it's themselves or their coworkers who are talking.

In fact, 68 percent of these employees responded they would rather meet a superior or collaborator face-to-face to discuss work activities rather than emailing, texting or having a phone conversation. This indicates there are some elements of the workplace that don't need improvement by technology, and respecting this preference can be made easier with eLearning development.

Digital training solutions can be used to make a staff more efficient. Fewer resources will need to be devoted to personnel instruction, giving employees the ability to set aside time for face-to-face meetings.

Businesses can also use eLearning development to teach employees better interpersonal communication. While it may be tempting to encourage digital conversations because it seems more efficient, staff members can be taught to seek out each other and their supervisors for face-to-face meetings. This can improve workplace attitudes and make for a more harmonious and efficient office.
