The makeup of the United States work force is changing. An increased number of immigrants in the work force have significantly affected the corporate atmosphere creating the need for a new approach to employee training. All adult learners have different learning styles which are culturally influenced and which impact training in the workplace. By applying educational theory and methods to workplace training, corporations can more effectively train employees with diverse learning style preferences. This project provides a guide to corporate educators who work with culturally diverse employees and provides an educational foundation for effective workplace training based upon analysis of: (a) preferred student learning styles, (b) cultural influences on the learning style preferences, (d) effective teaching strategies to respond to each learning style, and (e) planning, implementing, and assessing effective and relevant corporate training programs.
