Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent HCM research and analyst firm, is launching a study to benchmark how organizations are changing their strategy, investment, technology use and measurement of leadership development.
Just as the modern workforce is now required to be adaptable and agile, organizations must be equally adaptable and agile. Adaptability and agility should be reinforced by giving employees the tools to make connections across the workforce with access to the resources they need as they need them. The ability for new employees to feel like they are part of something greater requires access to social and collaborative team-based learning technology and that is what the Great Onboarding is all about.
There are many stories about The Great Resignation, but very few about its causes and what can be done to prevent it. Brandon Hall Group recently asked businesses if their employees feel their work stress is manageable and only 3% of organizations strongly agreed.
The demand for leading-edge technical skills will not slow down. Global disruptions have increased the need for a wider array of available technical skills and competencies. Organizations need to choose the right partner to ensure they maintain the proper level of technical proficiency in their workforce. The Skillsoft and Codecademy combination is a compelling choice for a partner.
The goal for any organization regarding workforce management is to create efficiency and enhance productivity. But the most successful companies will be those that use workforce management to increase efficiency and foster an environment that is truly adaptable — and able to meet the needs of customers, employees, and shifting business conditions alike.
Employers can’t address all concerns employees have, but they can analyze where the biggest problems are, address them, then design communication campaigns to inform the workforce. Even when you act, engage employees to be part of the solution and get their feedback so you can adjust as needed.
The Great Resignation — a mass exodus of workers leaving their organizations (and often going somewhere else) is often framed as people leaving for better pay. While compensation certainly plays a part, the most common reasons people leave are unmanageable stress, and also because managers were not prepared to work with them in this new workplace environment.
We are hosting a webinar with learning data specialists, Cognota, to dig into what data the learning and development organization should be capturing and how to use it. We will also review what companies should look for when evaluating tools and technologies for data analysis. The entire business runs on data, which makes these tools and skills critical for the learning and development organization.
Level-setting on currently available skills through the use of assessments will position organizations to meet the challenges ahead. By using Skillsoft’s benchmarks to define and close current skills gaps, organizations can build a framework to continually meet the changing skill needs of the business and the future of work.
