3 Ways Former Google CEO Is Reengaging Workers To Be More Productive
The World Economic Organization recently announced by 2022, 75 million jobs will be destroyed and 133 million will be created as a result of new technologies. Consequently, companies are likely to face resistance in retraining tenured employees who have a limited skill set. Therefore, it’s crucial for them to start preparing employees for change by reopening their appetite for learning and decreasing their fear of the future.
Stéphan Bruno, director of human resources for Principality of Monaco, is determined to be at the forefront of the digital revolution. At the London Gartner ReImagine HR conference, Bruno announced the governments partnership with CoorpAcademy to retrain 3,600 of Monaco’s public sector employees. Known as the Netflix of knowledge and training, CoorpAcademy is an innovative digital e-learning platform that uses gamification to make training interactive and appealing.
Creating A More Learner-Centric Approach
CoorpAcademy co-founder and former head of Google France, Jean-Marc Tassetto, aims to creatively disrupt traditional e-learning experiences. Instead of imitating Coursera and Udemy by seeking out professors from top universities, Tassetto felt it would be more effective to partner with key industry leaders across the globe. These leaders are entrusted with developing and teaching specific courses relevant to their expertise. For example, Understand Blockchain Technology is a course created by IBM and taught by its current employees.
Reducing Fear Of The Future
Both Bruno and Tassetto understand by putting employees in charge of their learning, with guidance from their manager, non-digital natives can increase their digital maturity at a pace that feels comfortable for them. Users also have the opportunity to take advantage of additional content to further develop their skill set. Some courses available to them are feminine leadership, stress management and design thinking, to name a few.
Engaging Through Micro-Learning
A study by Microsoft states on average an individuals attention span lasts 8-seconds. If companies and e-learning platforms want to keep users engaged and on track to complete the course, they need to focus more on mini modules that are short enough to keep their attention. Tassetto states the most successful micro-learning modules typically range from 5-12 minutes in length. Anything longer risks losing the attention of its users. Their micro-learning modules are a healthy mix of asking questions, playing games and keeping players engaged until the end with short form videos.
With clients such as L’oreal, IBM, Nestle and BNP Paribas, the EdTech startup has found great success in their unique and innovate learning approach. By placing learners first, employees are empowered to develop their skills for who they want to be instead of who they are now. Bruno was surprised to see employees at every level of the government sector from gardeners to firemen positively interacting with the platform.”
