Innovation in Training and Development: New methods and technologies for employee training.


In an increasingly diverse, multi-generational world of work, employee training and development is critical in building strong, engaged teams. As we immerse ourselves in an era where different generations coexist, understanding how each group perceives their career and the value they place on training and learning is essential to aligning and creating effective business strategies.

Embracing generational diversity in teams

Different generations perceive work life and the concept of work differently. From the most experienced to newcomers, each group has its own expectations and priorities in terms of training. In this way, the training of different teams and their skills development becomes personalized, capable of attracting and retaining the best talent, regardless of age or years of experience.

The key to delivering successful training tools in the enterprise lies in understanding and addressing the different learning perspectives of each generation. This challenge has led Learning & Development managers to adopt a three-pronged approach to training: mandatory, semi-mandatory or self-directed learning.

Mandatory or guided learning

Structured, expert-led training. An approach that sets clear objectives, provides the necessary resources and offers constant feedback on the process. It is ideal for introducing employees to new company policies, learning about the pillars of the company or training in skills and knowledge specific to their area.


Employees have some autonomy in the learning process, still receiving guidance from training experts. They explore topics of interest to them while receiving recommendations when necessary. This encourages the discovery of resources related to their tastes, while continuing with the training that the company is interested in.


It gives employees full responsibility for their learning, to explore and learn at their own pace and according to their own tastes, encouraging self-discipline, and tailoring learning to the needs of each employee.

This is where the role of skills becomes fundamental. By identifying the essential skills for each position and providing the appropriate training, companies ensure that employees are prepared for current and future challenges. Soft skills, such as communication and adaptability, are increasingly in demand in today’s business world, as they are vital for success in today’s changing work environment.

Skill-Based Organizations: an approach on the rise

Skill-Based Organizations are organizations that recognize the importance of focusing on the development of market-demanded skills over specific titles or roles. By adopting this mindset of prioritizing skills, they are able to adapt more easily to market changes and provide greater growth opportunities for their employees.

This new approach not only increases the efficiency and productivity of companies, but also creates a dynamic and constantly evolving work environment by providing employees with the tools they need to adapt and thrive.

Innovation in learning, the solution for personalized development

Innovation in learning has emerged as the key to personalized and effective training and development, with which companies are embracing the multigenerational diversity of their teams and strengthening their skills.

Tools such as Artificial Intelligence and data analytics are transforming the way employee development is personalized and tailored. Thanks to our Business Intelligence system, we can have visibility into all real-time data on learning, experiences, courses and plans created, as well as hours of reading and ecosystem usage. All of this allows for ease of decision making such as adapting more and more content and ways of learning to each person. Undoubtedly, the best way to offer growth to teams in any organization, unlocking their maximum learning potential.

In short, new methods and technologies for employee training are revolutionizing the way organizations develop talent and promote continuous learning, preparing their employees to face the challenges of today and tomorrow’s world of work.
