WEBINAR: Faster learning
What can organisations do to help their employees to forget faster? (in order to lean more quickly)
In this interactive online session Caroline Freeman, Olivia Lory Kay and Dr Markus Bernhardt discussed whether the world needs faster learning – is it part of society building back better, responding to the Future of Work in the short term, or equipping the next generation to step into the jobs that we do not yet know what they might be.
We partner with our customers to empower their learning and development to create transformative organisational change
There has never been a bigger ask in learning and development. Organisations are facing unprecedented economic turbulence, changes to the way that people work and live, accelerating adoption of technology, and changing notions of their purpose. And at the same time, savings, efficiency, and “doing more with less” are critical for success.
The pace of change is increasing, and the most competitive organisations are the ones that learn the fastest. As automation and AI take care of repetitive tasks and crunch data, employees are increasingly required to focus on tasks that need uniquely human abilities such as creativity, emotional intelligence and decision making. They also need to regularly refresh and update their skills so that they can react more agilely to the future needs of the business.
The successful organisations are those that embrace a culture of learning, in which employees proactively seek out ways to gain new skills. That’s why learning and development needs to play a more strategic role, both to upskill and reskill people to meet the changing needs, and to engender a culture of learning, working more collaboratively with the other areas of the business to demonstrate real impact.
