Staff: Learning is required
Above all, 2012 is one thing; continuing education itself is already a big trend. Employees are expected to want to continue their education and at the same time offer more and more Company Seminars and courses.
Employers not only benefit from specialized employees, they are also perceived by their employees as an attractive company. A great theme is therefore the lifelong learning and preservation of the appropriate knowledge.
Continuing education is in!
The dream candidate of a company in 2012 is a specialist with soft skills who is ready to train. And according to the current TNS Infratest study “Further Education Trends in Germany 2012 ″, distance learning is at the top of the list for further training.
The flexibility offered by a distance learning course is particularly convincing: the participants are self-responsible, are not tied to fixed times and places, and are able to share the time of their further training themselves, thus adapting to their work environment.
Fernstudium as a new trend?
Distance studies are often internet-based, and according to Trendbuch Personalentwicklung 2012 the next trend: learning 2.0. This is above all the digital, informal learning with the help of the social networks meant. On the Internet, nowadays everyone can publish content and make available to others, which can then modify and extend it.
This also raises the question of whether learning, through the unlimited access to information, will take place completely informally in the future. Even though traditional methods such as classroom learning in combination with e-learning are still mostly used, the Internet is taking on an increasingly important position.
More possibilities, more expectations
The principle of Learning 2.0 is also used by companies: For example, a company can put all of its “knowledge” online and give employees access to it.
Dementsprechend sind auch die Ansprüche dieses Jahr: Gesucht werden vor allem Arbeitskräfte aus dem IT- und ingenieurnahen Umfeld, die außerdem über Methodenwissen und kommunikative Fähigkeiten verfügen.
What is required?
To this end, very good knowledge of English, especially among academics, is no longer just expected, but rather is expected.
Soft skills are also becoming more important this year, especially among senior executives. The main demand here, according to the TNS Infratest study, is nonverbal sensitive communication skills and social competence.
But there are also trends on the part of the employers: the search for new employees becomes digital, talks with Skype are becoming more and more frequent. And also the recruiting takes place more and more online:
Websites such as LinkedIn or Xing are the starting point and especially younger generations and career starters create a professional network via Facebook. However, further careers do not benefit from the internet in this respect. However, jobs in this area will still be taken offline and more likely through personal relationships.
Work-life balance and burnout prophylaxis as training trends
Another trend 2012 is dealing with companies with burnouts. The issue is always taken more seriously and the prevention and treatment of burnouts also has an impact on the image of a company.
And here, too, one finds the trend of continuing education: many companies offer seminars for burnout prophylaxis.
