Millennials prefer face-to-face contact when it comes to acquiring new work-related knowledge and skills

Share this post:

I’m currently trying to collect facts around IBMs position in developing the IBM Training and Skills offerings, and stumbled across an interesting study from IBM around Millennials. There are lots of interesting facts in the study, but the most interesting one for me is around how Millennials want to learn:“No question about it, Millennials are adept at interacting online, but this doesn’t mean they want to do everything virtually. When it comes to acquiring new work-related knowledge and skills, for example, they prefer face-to-face contact. They’re slightly more comfortable with virtual learning than their older colleagues: 35 percent are happy to use self-paced interactive modules, apps or online simulations, compared to 33 percent of Gen X and 30 percent of Baby Boomers. However, Millennials’ top three preferences involve personal interaction.”
