Business sustainability using training solutions

Business sustainability using continuous training solutions helps companies to embrace a culture of “investing in people”. Companies invest in training their employees rather than hiring new people which can be much more costly on different levels. Most companies nowadays want to invest in retaining their people – and developing that pool – so they keep employees well trained and up-to-date so that they can respond to the company’s ever-changing needs.

The flipped classroom model in corporate training

This new educational model, differs from the traditional “frontal teaching”, since virtually reverses educator’s “in class” instruction (synchronous e-learning) with homework (asynchronous e-learning). In fact, lessons studied at home, give the opportunity to save time for discussion, learners’ questions and collaborative activities with the supervision and assistance of the trainer, during the synchronous e-learning.
