The modern learning strategy, supported by digital transformation, is delivering tangible business impact.
(Towards Maturity, 2015)
Today, 7 out of 10 training and development professionals don’t understand how their employees learn to do their jobs, according to Dave Buglass, 2015 Learning & Development Professional of the Year.
But, see that smartphone in their free hand at lunch? How about that quick Snapchat check on their break? Take note - your employees are showing you how to engage them to be more valuable for your business.
Today’s employees, like your customers, expect on-demand access to what they want, when they want it. But it’s not as selfish as it sounds since what they want is to be engaged with continuing education that rewards them with promotion, recognition and a greater sense of purpose to drive success for your business.
The unfortunate truth is, if you don’t offer them a way to stay engaged, today’s employees will move on to an employer who does.
