Worldwide, $130 billion dollars was spent on corporate training in 2014, up 15 percent from 2013. Meanwhile:
- 70% of organizations cite “capability gaps” as one of their top five challenges.
- Employees have as little as 1% of their work day to dedicate to learning due to continued capacity strains
- “Corporate training” is rated as the lowest valued way to learn at work.
That should be a scary picture for every learning and performance professional. We’re quickly losing relevance in a world that needs our help but doesn’t have the patience for us to get our act together. Learning and development must change to meet the needs of the modern learner and workplace — but how?
In this webinar, I shared my organization’s practical approach to evolving what it means to support learning and performance in the modern workplace. I explored the challenge facing L&D as it attempts to step off the business sidelines to become an essential part of the business ecosystem. We discussed our resource-centered approach, supported by the realities of brain science and the context of the modern workplace, has helped us become a valued partner to every employee in our support teams.
