Expand Healthcare Business Skills and Promote Leadership Development with New Skillsoft Training

A recent Bersin study reveals that healthcare employees have just 1% of workweek available for learning—that equates to just 24 minutes per week. This is a tiny window of time for development of professionals and leaders; that time has to be put to optimal use. Both the nature of the content and its delivery must be optimized against this constraint. That is why micro-learning content, delivered in short bursts, is so critical for today’s learner.

In today’s always-on work environment, people won’t take the time to learn unless it feels relevant and it’s embedded in the workflows of the learner. The stats are humbling:

            Employees often won’t watch a video longer than 4 minutes.

            We have to grab someone’s attention in 10 seconds.

Learners must have the right kind of quality learning content just when they need it, in the moment when they are seeking just-in-time answers to unexpected business challenges.
