Who moved my skills?

Oct 3, 2019 | Featured, General, In-Focus Reports, Research

Organisations are facing unprecedented levels of change as they seek to remain competitive and gain new markets. One of the critical challenges facing organisations is the acquisition of skills in this new landscape. With individuals facing numerous competing priorities, it is clear more needs to be done to communicate the value of continuous skills acquisition, and facilitate a culture that supports the up-skilling and re-skilling of the workforce.

About this report

In order to future-proof and remain competitive, organisations are aiming to develop learning cultures that are connected, networked and boundary-less to retain and grow their talent, and become more attractive for their workforce, internal customers and external clients. However, this is only possible if their people are set up for success. Most organisations still find it difficult to identify their critical capability priorities at the depth and pace required. Even those organisations that quantify their critical capability needs effectively are faced with the major challenge of creating a learning culture that supports the acquisition of skills with the agility needed to remain competitive. So how can people professionals navigate such complexity and develop a learning organisation that continuously encourages skills acquisition?

Who moved my skills?, supported by CrossKnowledge, explores how top performing organisations utilise both conventional and creative approaches to up-skill and re-skill their workforce. After highlighting the importance of skills acquisition, this report looks to those organisations that are thriving in order to share the behaviours that are leading to their success.

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.

We all have blind spots, why does being aware of yours add value?

When it comes to organisational culture, performance and learning, blind spots (or as they are often referred to ‘not seeing the light’) are usually found at the root of most of our problems with work today. These problems shape our day to day conversations, thinking, mood, judgement, decisions-making, or fundamental lack of them. These issues can make or break your workplace experience.

In a world in which the nature of work, the workplace and workforce are changing at a relentless pace, organisations must respond to change.
