A Trusted Guide to Outsourcing Talent and How to Go About it

Covid19 and the events of 2020 have changed the way modern workplaces operate today. Businesses had to adapt quickly to survive the disruptive environment. As the dust settles, organizations are beginning to think about the future. They are looking to increase their preparedness by developing post Covid19 learning strategies, increasing business agility, and by improving training effectiveness. Working with an outsourced training provider can help your organization achieve these critical goals.

Closing the Learning Talent Gap
One of the toughest challenges, organizations have been faced with today is the increased need for learning talent. The pandemic caused traditional training formats and programs to become ineffective overnight. Many trainers, managers and in house L&D staff do not have the skills needed to help their organizations adjust to these changes. Outsourcing your learning talent needs can help your organization close the skills gap as well as train your in-house teams. Outsourcing learning talent is also a more cost-effective solution. In fact, Nelson Hall recently reported that "outsourcing training activities is 25% less expensive than working with internal teams."

Developing a New Learning Strategy
An experienced outsourced training provider can help your company develop a winning learning strategy for the future. Your business goals have likely changed this year. According to the Fosway Group, " 94% of L&D Professionals have reported having to change their L&D Strategy in response to the Covid-19 pandemic with 2 in 3 making significant changes to what they do and how they do it." An outsourced provider can use a strategic process to align your programs learning objectives with your organization's new goals maximizing training impact.

Improving Training Effectives
An outsourced training provider can also help your business improve the effectiveness of your current learning programs. According to the Association for Talent Development, "organizations spend about $1,273 for direct learning per employee per year. Almost 75 percent of that is for internal learning and development, and only around 25 percent is outsourced. This means a company with 10,000 employees spends around $12.7 million annually to support learning and development, and a whopping $9.5 million of that goes toward internal functions. " Working with a team of outsourced experts can save you time and money on training your in-house teams and help you improve you current L&D programs. An experienced provider in the training industry will have a strategic process for evaluation and optimization. They also have a team of experts and the professional tools needed to successfully complete this process.

Increasing Business Agility
The disruptive business market is expected to continue in 2021 and beyond. Improving organizational agility can help set your business up for success.72% of executives in the 2021 Deloitte Global Human Capital Trends Survey found that the ability to adapt to change was one of the most important factors in their organizations ability to navigate the future. An outsourced training provider can assist you by increasing the speed to market of your L&D projects. They can also help you scale your learning projects at a moments notice.
