In Focus: Driving Performance & Productivity

Apr 16, 2018 | Featured, In-Focus Reports, Research

This new report, In Focus Driving Performance & Productivity: Why Learning Organisations propel and sustain more impact, supported by the CIPD, investigates how L&D in high performing organisations connect with business leaders, engage learners, and in turn promote a culture of inclusion.

It highlights how a blended approach using technology, skills, and strategy, implemented collaboratively, leads to higher performance and productivity.

About this report

For over 15 years, Towards Maturity has been investigating how learning innovation can deliver business impact.  Our recent research, The Transformation Curve, reveals that high-performing learning organisations, on average, are seeing a 24% increase in productivity and performance as a result of learning done well.

These Top Deck Organisations (the top 10% of organisations in the Towards Maturity Index)  are showing transformation by being twice as likely to report achieving benefits to help them respond faster to change (39% vs 18%) and build the capability of the organisation to solve problems (47% vs 19%).

High-performing learning organisations are achieving greater growth, productivity, profitability and are better enabling business transformation.

Covered in this report

Setting goals
To sustain high performance and productivity, learning organisations embed a vision and release the capability of their people to achieve it.

Getting there smarter
High performing learning organisations are ten times more likely than low performing companies to use learning analytics to improve the delivery of their services.

Building ownership
To ensure that learning is successfully applied, high performing and productive organisations understand, involve and facilitate.

Empowering people
To empower their learners, high performing learning organisations to support, give permission and encourage by creating a holistic people experience.
