Bringing rigor to L&D decision making around the globe
Cegos, an international leader in training and development, joins Towards Maturity’s Ambassador Programme to support the provision of independent, global data to inform L&D thinking.
Cegos, together with Towards Maturity are urging L&D professionals to shift their thinking towards modern learning strategies that are driven by independent, evidence-based data rather than fads.
Digitisation of learning is a must in today’s fast-paced, digital and global workforces. With a proven impact on business results, 19% of L&D budget is allocated to learning technologies yet the pace of change is slow.
As Towards Maturity’s 2016 Benchmark Report, Unlocking Potential, has shown, this is a shared global issue and there is a lot to be learned by looking to our peers globally.
Laura Overton, CEO and Founder of Towards Maturity said,
“Today’s learning is no longer about knowledge and programmes, it’s about agility, impact and performance. With Cegos as an Ambassador the international reach of our free benchmarking programme has been extended even further so that as an industry, we can continue to help businesses acquire the data and direction they need to unlock potential”.
Commenting on the collaboration, Simon Vuillaume, Director for International Projects Development, Cegos said:
“At Cegos Group, we are committed to helping organisations around the globe improve their business performance thanks to smart L&D strategies and solutions. Like Towards Maturity, we believe in “Business transformation through learning innovation”.
