As tech­no­log­i­cal capa­bil­i­ties quick­ly advance, cor­po­rate IT train­ing is becom­ing more rel­e­vant for busi­ness­es in all indus­tries to keep up with competitors.

Aim­ing to upskill and reskill employ­ees, cor­po­rate train­ing ini­tia­tives for any func­tion­al busi­ness area help improve an organization’s work effi­cien­cy and pro­vide learn­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for employ­ees to grow their skillset and progress in their career. This increas­es employ­ee sat­is­fac­tion, and there­fore, improves reten­tion. More fre­quent­ly, many com­pa­nies are start­ing to offer cor­po­rate train­ing to employ­ees across an orga­ni­za­tion, no longer just tar­get­ing train­ing to those in lead­er­ship roles or new-hire onboard­ing, as wide-scale in-house edu­ca­tion helps progress toward the goal of busi­ness growth. Addi­tion­al­ly, it is increas­ing­ly impor­tant for a busi­ness to have employ­ees that pos­sess some lev­el of tech skills. With a rapid rise of dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tions in busi­ness­es, and trends in tech, such as hyper-automa­tion, blockchain, data democ­ra­ti­za­tion, and AI start­ing to make more of an impact on busi­ness­es, an invest­ment in cor­po­rate IT train­ing now can pay off for years to come.

Today, hav­ing a num­ber of employ­ees with tech skills in areas like soft­ware devel­op­ment or data sci­ence is nec­es­sary, not just for those oper­at­ing in roles in an organization’s IT depart­ment, but also for employ­ees in oth­er depart­ments, such as mar­ket­ing and oper­a­tions. Cyber­se­cu­ri­ty exper­tise is also a top pri­or­i­ty. Orga­ni­za­tions are lever­ag­ing data and using tech­nol­o­gy to grow their busi­ness, but this can come with risk – for exam­ple, on aver­age, IoT devices may face cyber attacks 5,200 times per month. Addi­tion­al­ly, through­out the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, demand for tech skills remained high, with increased reliance on the capa­bil­i­ties of IT depart­ments to facil­i­tate remote work options and keep data secure. As orga­ni­za­tions rec­og­nize the impor­tance of IT skills and devel­op plans to deep­en tech knowl­edge with­in their busi­ness, it may make more sense to upskill or reskill an exist­ing work­force rather than invest­ing in new tal­ent recruit­ment, espe­cial­ly for com­pa­nies oper­at­ing in indus­tries with com­plex­i­ties that can­not be as eas­i­ly learned. There­fore, cor­po­rate IT train­ing has become promi­nent among learn­ing and devel­op­ment initiatives.

In order to max­i­mize an invest­ment in cor­po­rate IT train­ing, a clear busi­ness out­come should be estab­lished to guide learn­ing and clar­i­fy exact­ly what actions need to be tak­en in order to meet the goal. By estab­lish­ing a com­pa­ny-wide approach to train­ing as progress toward the busi­ness’ growth, rather than view­ing train­ing as a one-time event in learn­ing and devel­op­ment, cor­po­rate IT train­ing can sig­nif­i­cant­ly impact a busi­ness’ capa­bil­i­ties in a mod­ern tech-dri­ven world. To com­plete a suc­cess­ful cor­po­rate IT train­ing and imple­ment a true busi­ness trans­for­ma­tion, choos­ing the right learn­ing sys­tem and iden­ti­fy­ing which per­son­nel in which depart­ments can ben­e­fit the most from cor­po­rate IT train­ing can make a huge dif­fer­ence. By invest­ing in their peo­ple, orga­ni­za­tions can max­i­mize the impact of cor­po­rate IT training.
