Organizations find themselves needing to upskill and reskill their workforce quickly and effectively. Rapidly shifting business needs, continually advancing technology, and the impact of a global pandemic have all put pressure on L&D to adapt and evolve their employee training and development initiatives.
Brandon Hall Group Smartchoice® Bronze Preferred Provider AllenComm helps its clients build effective leadership development programs with a focus on training metrics. By beginning with learning measurement that is focused on organizational needs and goals, AllenComm helps develop leadership skills at all levels. It begins with a full analysis of what skills gaps exist and to what extent, then bringing in the right content, experiences, and technology to match those needs.
Brandon Hall Group Smartchoice Bronze Preferred Provider AllenComm knows that learning measurement is not an endpoint but is part of the DNA of learning content. Without proper measurement, L&D teams are unable to uncover any positive or negative trends in their learning programs, relying solely on completion rates and smile sheets to measure training effectiveness.
The goal of a strong upskilling and reskilling program is to create a more resilient and agile workforce that can continue to be successful in an environment of new and changing roles. Brandon Hall Group’s Talent Management Maturity study found that 90% of companies believe a lack of talent mobility is a significant risk to the business, meaning they cannot reallocate talent resources to the areas where the business needs them most.
Onboarding is an effective way to get your teams working together. You can promote interactions across divisions and functional areas by creating onboarding activities that require teamwork. For example, you can have new employees work on cross-functional teams on a collaborative project. For employees in new roles or at a newly merged company, you might choose to create a social onboarding task. These types of interactions help employees feel connected to something bigger than themselves. These types of activities also help the employee get familiar with the tools and technology available to them in their new role. It also helps them to see how that technology might be useful in solving problems down the road.

Organizations’ leaders have been considering the digital transformation of learning for a long time but have been very slow to put anything substantial in place. The pandemic required this transition to occur almost overnight. Organizations must take this opportunity to truly transform their learning strategy and the technology they use to make it a reality. They must look toward sustainable, impactful solutions, rather than temporary measures.
