LearningNow – Cost effective ways to reach out to and motivate learners

by | Mar 19, 2014 | Articles

Are you interested in new ideas to help deliver learning that is more effective, efficient and engaging? If yes, I wanted to let you know that there are a few places left at our free LearningNow Workshop, in London on Wednesday the 2nd of April from 9.45 to 13.45 at One Drummond Gate, Victoria, London.

LearningNow is a joint initiative with Towards Maturity and Epic (one of our founding Ambassadors). The programme is designed to provide you with the opportunity to hear from great speakers and, perhaps more importantly, share ideas with each other about what works and what doesn’t.

Engaging reluctant learners – the key to success

In the 2013-14 Towards Maturity Benchmark we see that L&D leaders have an increasing hunger to deliver business results with technology enabled learning. For example, over nine out of ten benchmark participants are looking to help them increase staff productivity and improve staff satisfaction. Yet fewer than three in ten are successfully acheiving these aims. Nearly half report staff and manager reluctance as one of the biggest barriers to change.

From a staff perspective, they say they are reluctant to engage due to uninspiring content, the fact that they can’t get what they want where they need it and the fact that they can’t find what they need (from 2,000 learners in the Towards Maturity Learning Landscape Audit.

This month’s LearningNow event will provide an opportunity to share ideas on how to connect and engage with busy staff. How to reach out and motivate time starved learners and how to work smarter with resources that we already have are just two of the topics we will be tackling on the 2nd, so I hope that you will be able to come along!

I appreciate that many members of the Towards Maturity research community are not based in the UK – whilst the workshop provides the powerful benefit of networking, learning and sharing with each other, we will be summarising the outputs from the day in our LearningNow Updates.

Challenging Perceptions

The corporate learning market is rapidly evolving to meet the ever-changing demands of work and worker. The C-suite and L&D leaders can no longer ignore that over 90 percent of organizations do not realize the full value of their investments.

All you need is Evidence

All you need is Evidence

Every year over $400billion is spent on corporate learning globally, yet only 15% is proven to stick. Investments in learning are continuing to grow year on year but performance impact is not changing. The industry is still struggling to provide real proof of impact, in fact, for the first time the Towards Maturity Index is tracking a significant decline. This is causing leaders to have low confidence levels in L&D.

Having clear evidence is a vital starting point in identifying where improvement is needed and backing up your business case for change. We spoke with Emma Smith, Head of Talent at FirstPort Limited, a residential property management company. She had used the Towards Maturity Learning Health Check in a previous role and has now brought this tool to her new organisation in order to help transform their workplace learning culture.
