The Transformation of L&D

The field of learning and development is undergoing a huge transformation. It started before the pandemic forced companies to rethink in-person training and work from home policies. Today, the shift is playing out against a backdrop of market volatility, a rapidly changing workforce, and technological transformation that has impacted our lives in every way.

Workforce readiness—the state of being fully prepared—is now a mandate for all organizations in this swiftly evolving economy. According to PwC's "Talent Trends 2019" report, "79 percent of CEOs worldwide are concerned that a lack of essential skills in their workforce is threatening the future growth of their organization."

While many Chief Learning Officers (CLOs) may believe their current approach to workforce readiness addresses these changing demands, most efforts only begin to lay the foundation for a transformation that will directly impact the growth and strength of your business and your employees.
