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

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

Empowering people

The Great Training Robbery

The Great Training Robbery

According to research published by Harvard Business School (HBS), organisations across the globe are experiencing ‘The Great Training Robbery’ because the correct conditions and culture for learning are not in place. People are not ready and willing to change, and ultimately learn.

La Vie en Rose, does seeing ‘life in pink’ matter?

Learning can be defined in many ways, but most psychologists would agree that it is a relatively permanent change in behaviour that results from experience. The three major types of learning described by behavioural psychology are; classical conditioning, operant conditioning and observational learning. In order for learning to stick and becomes the new normal, all three types require self-driven will. Therefore, how people view the world through their lens matters.

In a world in which the nature of work, the workplace and workforce are changing at a relentless pace, organisations must respond to change. In the context of such rapid change Learning and Development (L&D) functions play a vital role. The transformation of organisations demands the transformation of L&D practitioners, however many L&D teams are struggling to change.
