6 aspects which prove that traditional training should not be forgotten

Online training has gained important ground recently, but face-to-face training still offers great advantages.

Even today, there are business areas where traditional face-to-face is better than digital or automated learning.

1. Not everything can be taught by a computer

Interpersonal skills need human contact to be learned effectively.

2. Promotes meaningful communication

Face-to-face interaction help to establish good relationships, which in turn, allow people to improve their teamwork skills, share ideas, ask questions, listen, negotiate, build trust, influence others, etc.

3. Builds more effective team connections

Sharing experiences and solving problems collectively helps to build a better integral connection within a work team.

4. Integration

Personal interaction brings together employees from different areas of the firm. This way, those who haven’t met before can learn about what is happening in different areas of the organization and help to solve problems collectively.

5. Learn without leaving the workplace

Face-to-face training guarantees that the scheduled time for learning is effectively used, while further strengthening employees’ commitment and ensuring that they learn the specific skills and knowledge that they need.

6. More efficient evaluation

Proximity and interaction help to build trust, which in turn, allows employees to understand better what they are being taught and allows coaches and trainers to evaluate their learning on more accurate basis.
