by | May 3, 2017 | Featured, In-Focus Reports

In the new world of work, successful organisations need to prioritise four things: growth in competitive markets, transformation, productivity and profitability. What characteristics influence these results? 

Introducing the New Learning Organisation…

In the new world of work, successful organisations need to prioritise four things: growth in competitive markets, transformation, productivity and profitability.

Our research shows that we need to work smarter, not harder. Organisations who track in the top 10% (Top Deck) of the Towards Maturity Benchmark are three times more likely to report benefits relating to growth, profitability, transformation and productivity than the rest of the sample of 600.

By studying these organisations, we have uncovered six characteristics that will unlock potential by driving a future-focused New Learning Organisation:

  • Clarity of purpose
  • Holistic people experience
  • Thriving ecosystem
  • Agile, digitally-enabled infrastructure
  • Continual engagement
  • Intelligent decision-making

By turning data into insights and insights into action, this research is used to help L&D leaders assess and improve the appropriateness, effectiveness and efficiency of their learning provision.

Case Study: Best Learning Technologies Project 2018 (UK commercial Sector)

In 2018, 93% of learning practitioners wanted to increase employee engagement with learning, but only 27% were successful. With less than a third meeting this goal, it is important to explore how an exemplar organisation turned their learning strategy on its head to achieve just that.
