State of the Training Industry: Our Customers Tell Us What’s on Their Minds

State of Training Industry Graphic

Since Vector Solutions acquired Convergence Training last year, and we partnered up with our new sister company RedVector, we’ve each been borrowing things from one another to create a better experience for our customers.

One of the things that RedVector has been doing for a while, and that we at Convergence appreciated, was taking an annual survey of their customers that they called The State of the Training Industry. We like this idea because it gives us a great chance to see what our customers are doing and how we might be able to help them. And we also like it because it gives our customers a chance to learn from one another.

So below is a quick infographic drawn from the State of the Training Industry survey that we pulled together with questions asked of customers of both Convergence Training and RedVector. Feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments section below.

For an even deeper-dive into this, you can download the State of Industrial Training 2019 white paper RedVector prepared.

The State of the Training Industry: 2019

Below is a summary of some of the challenges our customers tell us they’re facing. As you can see, training and closing skill gaps is important and becoming increasingly important.

Remember you can check out the  the State of Industrial Training 2019 white paper this is drawn from and that includes much more information as well.

As you can see, we’re all going to need to dig in deep and work hard to help our organizations develop the skills of workers. To do that, you’ll need to follow evidence-based training practices, help people learn to learn, help people be motivated at work, and develop tools in addition to training that will help people perform efficiently on the job.

Good luck, friends!
