How to kickstart your learner-centric strategy

with Laura Overton, Jane Daly (Towards Maturity) and Teresa Rose (E.ON)
11:00 – 12:00, Conference Room 3

Experience the latest learning technologies research from E.On and Towards Maturity as they come together at the Learning Technologies Summer Forum, to show how giving an active voice to employees can create a customer-focused strategy that delivers growth, profit and business transformation.

How do you help people learn best? By putting them in charge. That’s the thesis of Laura Overton and Jane Daly of Towards Maturity and Teresa Rose of E.On Group, who bring together research and experience to demonstrate that a learner-centric approach is not only desirable, it’s a necessity for successful learning at work.

96% of L&D leaders want to increase self-directed learning but we continue to struggle to connect and engage. It’s time that L&D listened to their learners and worked smarter.

“This practical session will consider how true learning organisations put staff capability at the forefront of their thinking by placing staff at the heart of their strategy. When L&D provide staff with an active voice productivity and engagement flow.

Join this interactive panel with Towards Maturity and E.On to find out how to kick start a customer-centric strategy that delivers growth, profit and business transformation.”

Learning Technologies Summer Forum conference chair, Donald Taylor

Prepare for the show by benchmarking

By drawing on research from over 600 learning leaders and over 5,500 learners, we are identifying the steps organisations are taking to deliver on key outcomes. We also uncover the tactics being used by top performing organisations – those in the top 10% of the Towards Maturity Benchmark (we call these organisations the Top Deck). Wherever you are on your learning journey, we can help you take the next steps.

If you want to see how your strategy compares and find out what actions you should be prioritising at the moment, benchmarking is a great place to start – it can help L&D teams see where efficiency decisions can be made and create a sense of prioritisation, based on what top performing L&D teams are doing.

The Towards Maturity Benchmark reveals where you can make quick wins and gives you the data you need to make a solid business case for the future, with personalised feedback and scores on 19 areas of effective practice. If you would like to identify the tactics that will deliver greater impact for your organisation, get started here.
