In the past decade, the world of learning and development has
undergone some massive changes. There’s an unprecedented
quantity of content at HR’s fingertips, massive demand for con-tinuous
learning and a critical need to analyze data to make the
right decisions. With so much change, has your L&D kept up?
Many companies are falling behind. Deloitte’s Human Capital
Trends Report 2018 found more than half of business leaders sur-veyed
(54 per cent) have no programs in place to build the skills
of the future and only 18 per cent feel they give their employees
the ability to actively develop themselves within the organization.
There’s a lot at stake: a recent survey by the Association for
Talent Development found organizations with a strong culture of
learning were some of the best performers, attracting more tal-ent
with the highest levels of customer satisfaction. Catching up
with changes in the industry and leveraging the opportunities that
come with those changes could make all the difference.
OPEN ACCESS TO LEARNING
One of the most significant evolutions in L&D is the democrati-zation
of learning, thanks in large part to technology. “Ten years
ago, HR had a monopoly on all things learning,” said Bill Pelster,
Deloitte’s U.S. learning solutions partner. “It was command and
control. They provided all the classes, they funded it and they pro-vided
the course outlines and the career maps.”
