There’s been a profound shift in our world, increasing the need for organizations to beef up workforce learning and development. Technology is constantly advancing itself, and demographic changes are pushing the educational envelope. But in this quicksilver, 24/7, digital World of Work, we’re all after competitive advantage — and that means we’re always hungry to gain the knowledge and skills that drive success.
Employees are looking for ways to up their own game too — learning across multiple channels, from social to mobile to online to traditional classroom. But here’s a big difference: it’s not up the organization to deliver education for its employees. Learning now has to be a partnership between organization and employees. And that, combined with the explosion of platforms for how we learn, is a radical, unprecedented change. In fact, Deloitte’s 2016 Global Human Capital Trends report lists learning among the ten trends reshaping how we work.
That’s why I’m really looking forward to taking part in this webinar, The State of Workforce Learning in Our Digital World, offered by the team at Degreed. This is a vital topic, presented free and on-demand. We’ll be sharing insights about the impact of social, mobile, cloud and collaboration tools on workforce learning, and how digital disruptions continue to transform the modern-day workplace. There’s lots of learning in this one, so you don’t want to miss it. Mark your calendars for October 20, 2016, at 10 AM PST/1 PM EST and register now!
I’ll be talking to the Degreed team about how to:
- Better understand how social, mobile, cloud and other digital disruptors will continue to change the learning landscape
- Assess your own organization’s readiness for the digital transformation
- Plan new learning strategies with digital-related technologies in mind
Learning is a Workplace Partnership
What’s cutting-edge in workplace learning? Tools and platforms that enable us to learn when, how, when, where and what we want to. Powerful educational resources that team up with employers to deliver agile, meaningful and trackable learning experiences to the workforce. Smartly curated content that doesn’t reinvent the wheel. From smartphones to social media, from online sources to traditional classes, learning doesn’t resist digital disruption, it embraces it.
Learning works best when employers and employees collaborate — and that’s going to matter even more in years to come. A recent Degreed study found that 60 percent of employees would spend more time learning if they received some kind of credit or recognition for it. But they’re learning anyway, and spending money on it: 75 percent invested their own money on career-related development ($339 on average). So now’s the time to get on board.
Tune in to this exciting webinar on The State of Workforce Learning in Our Digital World. From where I sit, it’s a no-brainer.
