The live workshop, or instructor-led training (ILT), remains the most common format for employee training.
Net spending on digital learning is increasing, but live training will continue to be a priority when human interaction is a key component of the job description.
Live training can be expensive, particularly for remote teams. To reduce costs, live training can be incorporated into company meetings. Not only does this decrease meeting costs but it also reduces time out of the field.
An alternative is to deploy half-day live workshops. For flexibility, the start time can be scheduled so that attendees can arrive on the morning of the training.
There are many options in the corporate training space that provide workshops on general topics like leadership and time management, but they may not be specific to the unique needs of your team.
