As organisations grapple with talent attraction in the wake of the pandemic, HR functions increasingly need to invest in the development of their teams.
Learning and Development (L&D) is not only seen as critical to ensure that employees have the emerging skills required to perform in their role efficiently, but it is also an effective retention strategy as many workers crave the opportunities to develop their career.
With 75% of learners reporting that strong workplace training programmes have a high impact on their likelihood to stay with an employer and 65% reporting improved productivity, the stats speak for themselves.
L&D teams are the bridge between the organisational strategy and employees’ professional development. Employers that support organisational change by enabling individuals to develop their skills and capabilities are more likely to reap the rewards.
This Personnel Today webinar, in association with Emergn, looks at how L&D leaders can help drive performance and capability. Editor Rob Moss hosts a panel discussion that includes two case studies.
The first from AstraZeneca looks at how the pharmaceuticals company overhauled its performance management to create a new approach focusing on coaching-based dialogue that considers personal contribution, impact, and strengths-based development.
Our second case study looks at how custom-marketing business Vistaprint focused on establishing the right foundations for the future, closing a technological skills gap to drive performance and agility.
Register to find out:
- What learners really want from workplace training, and how employers can help fulfil these wishes
- How work-based learning can help people adapt and adopt the skills required to tackle emerging opportunities
- Why leaders should avoid a one-size-fits-all approach, and consider each individual’s professional development goals
- How moving from performance management to performance development can drive employee engagement.
This 60-minute webinar includes the opportunity for audience members to submit questions to our panel.
