The Revolution of Deskless Training

Back in the 90’s, a digital revolution stormed our screens. Entertainment transitioned from table-top to desk-top and a new era of connectivity commenced. Moving past the millennium, it’s clear that more and more of our life is taking place online, including learning. While this technological phenomenon is nothing new, it is also not going away. To succeed, institutions for professional development must understand the latest trends that are establishing a revolution of deskless training.
A recently released report entitled “Panorama of Training 2023-2024” provides a comprehensive view of the training and development landscape in Brazil. With several Enabley clients based in Brazil and the vicinity, it’s important to us to gain a broad picture of the training culture there. We found this report particularly insightful for delving into key findings and highlighting the shifting training dynamics in the region. Taking a specific focus on deskless training, an aspect gaining prominence, especially since the pandemic, even in the corporate world.

Deskless Training Dynamics

A striking revelation from the report is the transformation in training dynamics and learning paradigms. Particularly, the shift from traditional in-person training to a more digital approach. Before the pandemic, 70% of training activities were conducted in person, with only 30% happening online. However, in the post-pandemic era, this ratio flipped, showcasing a substantial increase in online training to 70%, while in-person training dropped to 30%. Similarly, during the pandemic, the revolution of deskless training really took fold when the world took notice of “Essential workers”. From delivery drivers to healthcare professionals, all of whom fall into the category of “Deskless workers”, require mobile training and sometimes instant on-the-job access to learning and information. The report further indicates a recent trend of a partial return to in-person training, with 38% of training sessions in 2023 happening face-to-face. This shift emphasizes the need for adaptive training platforms that can cater to both online and offline training needs.

Auto-Training on the Rise

Another significant trend highlighted in the report is the growth of auto training, which refers to self-directed learning initiatives. In 2023, auto-training represented 40% of training projects and showcases a steady upward trajectory. This trend signifies a shift towards more personalized and flexible learning experiences.

Platforms like Enabley offer a versatile solution that addresses the challenges of an evolving workforce with deskless training capabilities.
