The crucial role of informal and spontaneous training experiences

While formal training has its place in any L&D program, there are occasions that require on-site support. Whether it’s getting a job done or brushing up on core competencies, employees need access to JIT tools that can help quickly. Informal and social learning activities give them the opportunity to share their knowledge and expertise with the team and evaluate different perspectives. They can reflect on performance behavior and continuously develop their talents outside of the structured training environment. In other words, there is no limit to the knowledge they can gather as to what enables them to make meaningful changes on a personal level.

Even so, many companies still view formal training as the backbone of their employee development strategy. Virtual classrooms and other synchronous events often convey basic knowledge and informal learning complements and enriches these experiences. Hence, it is critical for businesses to strike a balance and to know when each approach is best for the best results.
