The L&D challenge for 2014: Balancing business priorities and individual needs
In this webinar, Laura Overton discusses one of the modern day challenges of today’s L&D department – how to balance the needs of business and individuals.
For the past ten years, Towards Maturity research has focused on the behaviours of successful learning organisations. Alignment to business priorities has always a critical component to success, but the careful attention to the requirements of individual staff members is becoming increasingly pressing.
This session looks at ten tips to get the balance right so that L&D can engage more learners AND deliver against the bottom line.
This webinar was conducted in conjunction with Towards Maturity’s founding Ambassador- Corporate Learning Consortium on the 28th of March 2014. The full recording can be found on this link. We’d recommend that you share this at your next L&D team meeting! The session draws on findings from the 2013-14 Towards Maturity Benchmark Study – the New Learning Agenda, which can be downloaded for free at www.towardsmaturity.org/2013benchmark.

Review your L&D strategy to discover your strengths and opportunities for improvement with the Towards Maturity Learning Health Check.
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.
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.
Towards Maturity Learning Health Check provides an ideal starting point for organisations wanting to improve their development, by giving clear evidence and comparisons with high-performing learning cultures. To get a real idea of how the Health Check has a proven business impact, we spoke with Robin Lilly, Capabilities and Leadership Development Director of Coca-Cola Hellenic Bottling Company, to hear his experiences.
Evidence is vital to backing up a case for change and even more powerful when internal data is being compared against high-performing learning organisations.
