COVID-19 has impacted a lot of sectors in an unprecedented way, and going back to normal seems like a long-standing dream now. One of the worst-hit industries by COVID-19 is the training industry. Be it a personal coaching institute, gym, or corporate training center, people are not feeling comfortable rejoining them. They still lack confidence in safety and well-being at these places since they are too crowded, and you never know who might be carrying the virus.
Training providers are expressing their concerns on how COVID-19 has impacted their training operations and how they are responding to these uncertain times. But before we deep dive into the solutions, let’s take a look at the problems first.
- A Drop in Booking Numbers
The worldwide lockdown brought a huge decline in the number of pre-bookings, especially for industries like construction, where most of the training requires a hands-on approach. To tackle this situation, businesses need to understand that communication with delegates is the key. If you are planning to open your training institute again, you need to communicate all things about their safety, i.e., what measures you are taking, how it will work, etc. Getting this number back to its original state and further increasing it is not going to be easy.
- Work From Home Problems
Because of the lockdown, we had to start working from home. It was a new culture for most of us, and we didn’t even have vital technology, such as headsets, webcams, and cloud-based access to company files, at our disposal. Everything can’t be made available at home, which is why people need to start working from the office, especially for on-field training. Furthermore, now, people are used to working from home, and getting them back to the office is going to be a big challenge. Not to mention that the virus is still out there.
- Business Losses
All businesses that had training as their primary source of generating revenue faced severe losses because of the COID-19 pandemic. They couldn’t open because of the rules and regulations imposed by the government that are still there in bits and pieces. Moreover, going back to normal is not as easy as it may sound since they have to bring trust amongst their customers that they will be safe. And it takes a lot of effort to realize the same.
