When remote learning becomes strategic

The increasing need for remote work that the Covid-19 crisis has boosted in response to calls for isolation, is emphasising the importance for organisations to be digitally-enabled, with systems that allow for seamless individual and team work.

A key component of any firm’s people management strategy that remote work must support, is learning and development. Workplace productivity and professional growth, then, aren't severely disrupted or postponed.

Consider an effective remote learning strategy as a core element of any organisations’ remote working framework in order to:

  • Deal with business continuity issues, either when volume shortage occurs, or in activity sectors where there is a volume surge
  • Enable and optimise post-crisis recovery
  • Get ready for the company's next strategic move
  • Continue the deployment of competencies and career development plans
  • Tie the link with the workforce, and address the emotional burden resulting from isolation, among others.

Until recently, remoteness was considered as a fast-evolving learning trend whose importance was being increasingly recognised but whose adoption was taking some time. In today's exceptional circumstances, it has become a strategic asset for the development of any company.

This unparalleled experience will likely influence remote learning adoption positively, even when the crisis will be behind us.
