Scaling Talent Development For A Global Workforce

Businesses have surpassed their domestic boundaries and have entered the global arena. With organizations operating in multiple cities and countries, human resources and L&D teams have found it challenging to keep their professional workforce sharper than ever. The biggest factor in learning operations today is what is the most efficient way to manage training protocols for a team that isn’t even in the same building, let alone the same city or country.

Experienced L&D teams know the benefits of their training protocols and strategy. But how do even the most seasoned of training and development professionals manage an organization with a global workforce, both in-person and in remote environments?

L&D Challenges for Organizations with a Global Presence

The logistics of learning have gone global and as a result training specialists must take into consideration both learner needs as well as training program needs. 

What should learning teams take into account when starting a training program that goes beyond borders?

  • Learner preferences – Using historical data and site-specific surveys, how do your learners prefer to be instructed? Take into account learning methods. 
  • Time zones and geographical locations – What are the most optimal times to deliver training so that the most learners are served? Which trainers of instructors are available in the area?
  • Training needs analysis – Using learner data, identify where learners need training. Evaluate the need to refresh professional skills or examine business cases where entirely new skills will be needed. 
  • Trainer and SME availability and caliber – Evaluate the location and availability of both full-time and part-time trainers and instructors to lead courses. Can they accommodate just several learners or a full classroom? Are they qualified to lead courses? If there are none, is there an internal or external subject matter expert who can provide training and guidance to learners?
  • Compliance and regulatory training – L&D teams must ensure that training is unique not just to organizational and industry standards but also to local government regulations in the person’s country of residence.
