This year, a survey by the Brazilian Association for Training and Development (ABTD), together with the Integração Escola de Negócios, pointed out that three of all training courses in the country are already online (69%). Two years earlier, before covid, that figure was only 29%.

Bill Gates, the historic founder of Microsoft, believes that in a few years all employment and professional training meetings will be in the metaverse. If that happens, only the value of inaction will bring benefits both to the environment and to society and management.

Even before that happens, it is already possible to prepare for free in collaboration with so-called ESG pillars.
