3 old habits that L&D need to leave behind in 2019

3 old habits that L&D need to leave behind in 2019

We have reached a pivotal point in the development of the L&D industry, where we need to make some hard decisions and critical changes if we are to remain effective. The actions we are taking at present, are often ineffective as they rarely create any lasting business impact. Right now, we are failing to show the value we possess to business leaders and lacking credibility with learners. So our approach to learning needs to adapt along with the times as we embrace the new year!

3 secrets for ensuring behaviour change in 2019

3 secrets for ensuring behaviour change in 2019

The point of learning in the workplace is to ultimately establish and develop skills within learners that help organisations to adapt and thrive. Saying that, with only 15% of L&D professionals reporting to have noticed positive changes in staff behaviour, it is clear that the extent to which learning is having an impact on subsequent actions is insufficient.1 The very nature of the L&D role is to instill new knowledge and behaviours into learners which they can apply in order to do their jobs more efficient and effectively. But at present this is lacking. So how do we ensure the behaviour of our learners change and learning is applied in practice?

Culture – is evidence-based L&D our silent witness?

Culture – is evidence-based L&D our silent witness?

Since launching our latest market insight, culture has been the most topical and provoked the more curiosity, yet, only 1 in 5 organisations manage to create a high performing learning culture today, and out of those that do, only 2 in 3 are successful in maintaining it. Although it seems only a few are able to sustain this level of success, it is definitely worth the effort, as learning cultures can result in 9x higher impact on engagement and performance.

3 fresh ideas to reinvigorate busy learners in 2019

3 fresh ideas to reinvigorate busy learners in 2019

Every day your employees face dozens of clients, managers, reports and projects competing for their attention. With 55% of workers saying they lack time to learn, it is clear heading into 2019 that we need to apply some fresh forward-thinking to recapture the attention of the learners and revive their passion for learning.
