Technology is used to give workers instant access to learning materials in the workplace, as well as providing immediate feedback from experts and peers while collecting live data to build ongoing assessment profiles.
Today’s workforce is comprised of five generations of global workers and our learning and language strategies must take into account their diverse needs, abilities, and preferences when it comes to learning materials and delivery.
