Change and uncertainty are consistent today. And it puts a huge pressure on HR & L&D professionals. But how do we manage the changes that affect our organizations? Shifting needs, shifting roles, and goals. It all calls for managing change and adapting. That's where learning comes in. Learning has never been more vital for business survival than it is today.
Despite slower growth in many sectors, good employees keep leaving. It's not enough just to get the employees to sign the contract. To keep the talents, we need to make sure they are and stay engaged and give them opportunities to develop and update their skills to match their wants and the market needs. And that's a big reason why learning & development in the workplace is so important.
But, to succeed, learning must not be seen as a separate thing. We must remember to anchor the learning strategy to support the overall business strategy and ensure our employees have the chance to develop throughout their careers.
We hope this report has given you a good base and will inspire your continued work to put learning on the strategic agenda.
We also hope that the insights can help you prioritize your heavy workload and show that by prioritizing learning & development, we strengthen both the business and the employees to be the best they can be.
