Many new starters since March have rarely seen their colleagues face to face or visited their offices. Casual contact has disappeared and with it the opportunity to learn from more experienced colleagues and to form the social networks vital to performing well within the informal organisation.
The same applies to education and training: remote learning has much to commend it but cannot wholly substitute for face-to-face sessions.
COVID has created a burning platform to accelerate adoption of new ways of training and developing young professionals. Smart technology can help to bridge the gap. Virtual and augmented reality tools have been widely used in some industries for years; the current crisis will hasten their adoption and widen their application elsewhere. But previous experience shows all the usual barriers to introducing new technology stand in the way: reluctance; little capability; lack of finance; poor states of readiness. And technology may help but is not the whole answer.
This year’s CMCE Research Conference brings together five commentators from business and academia with different perspectives that illuminate this important subject. Our focus will be on management consultants, but the issues arising in their training and development now and in the future apply equally to all who are in the professions.
This event will take place on Tuesday 24th November from 17:30 - 19:30
