CEOs say learning is important and so do employees, so why aren't more doing it?
The research is clear 84% of global executives ranked employee learning as important. 76% of employees and opportunities for career growth. 87% of millennials say professional development is important.
But that is contrasted by the lack of time. Gallup reports that 70% of the workforce is disengaged and the pace of today's business has most workers feeling overwhelmed which makes traditional in-class learning just another thing to distract them.
That is why we think e-learning is a new source of competitive advantage.
e learning increases employee engagement, raises productivity, and can be done on their own time and schedule. Consider some of these stats:
1) Elearning reduces learning time by at least 25 to 60 percent when compared to traditional learning;
2) 18% boost in employee engagement;
3) Every dollar invested in e-learning results in $30 increase in productivity - that is 30X Return.
4) It increases skill retention better and longer than traditional classroom training.
Advances in technology and learning are coming together to truly transform what and how we learn. As Hood says, “In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners will be those who can keep their L>C. That is, their rate of learning greater must be greater than the rate of change and greater than the rate of their competition."
The MACPA’s Anticipatory Organization: Accounting and Finance Edition, or AOAF, is the first nano-learning program for CPAs that meets these innovative new learning standards. The program combines three- to four-minute, single-concept videos with rapid application exercises to accelerate learning of complex competencies in less time than traditional CPE programs. It was developed by international futurist and best-selling author Daniel Burrus and recognized by Accounting Today magazine as one of the 2016 Products of the Year in the learning category.
