18 Amazing Microlearning Formats For Employee Training That Will Help You Enhance Your Training Strategy
In the recent past, there has been a lot of buzz on the challenge of dwindling attention spans. Many of you may have read about a Microsoft study that pegs the human attention span to a measly 8 seconds. A point to note is that the goldfish has an attention span of 9 seconds!
While I do not necessarily buy this data, the fact remains that the challenge of dwindling attention spans is very real. Furthermore, today’s workplace demands multi-tasking like never before, and we have competing priority tasks vying for our attention. Given this, the focus on training often competes with higher priority tasks and, thereby, its timely completion is low.
