Brandon Hall Group Smartchoice® Gold Preferred Provider BTS knows that change is the new normal. Organizations must continuously invest in their talent, intentionally shape the culture, and adapt their strategy to adapt swiftly to a rapidly changing world, and they have helped their clients do just that. Their approach is to help organizations create a path to learning that meets employees where they are, and gives them access to exactly what they need when they need it.
As organizations get larger and more complex, multi-tenancy becomes even more important. Different business units, geographies, and brands almost always need to have unique user experiences for their teams. Managing multiple platforms in a large organization can be chaotic. If the organization’s learning needs extend beyond internal employees to external audiences like partners, resellers, customers, or franchisees, those unique experiences become critical. Each of these audiences has needs that are vastly different from both employee audiences and each other. Meridian also works with several government-related entities leveraging multi-tenancy to create different learning portals for complex agencies at the local, state and federal levels
Brandon Hall Group Smartchoice® Preferred Provider Realizeit works with clients to completely transform how they approach onboarding and new hire training. They see it as a critical piece of a much larger, ongoing learning experience. Without that continuity, organizations risk low engagement among employees or even loss through attrition.
Taking a more personalized approach to learning is allowing companies to become much more agile in how they address skill gaps. There is a lot that goes into personalization, but ultimately, it can deliver much, much more. There are simple elements, like aligning the learning opportunities presented to employees with key information about them. Are they in a technical role? Or are they more in need of soft skills? What is their experience level? Their background? By pulling together everything we know about learners, we can deliver them what they need, rather than blanketing them in learning that could be redundant or irrelevant.
As companies look to an uncertain future filled with shifting remote/on-site workforce dynamics, increased attrition and a volatile world economy, many feel as if they are unprepared to face it, at least from a skills perspective. Only half of companies in Brandon Hall Group’s 2021 State of Learning Practices Study believe their approach to learning positions them well to meet that future. This means that the other half must figure out their learning strategy quickly, since the future of work is already here.
Brandon Hall Group and SAP Litmos will be hosting a webinar focused on understanding the learner that will feature results from the joint study and strategies for driving personalization.
Learning teams must put their organizations in a position to win the hearts and minds of their employees with outstanding learning. Most employees want to learn but feel they are not provided the opportunity to do so properly. Each employee has their own unique way to learn. Learning teams must create and deliver personalized learning for every employee at the speed and scale of business. Learning teams should employ the latest techniques and technology to develop fast, easily deployed, scalable and contextualized learning experiences for any workforce scenario. A better learner experience improves the process of skills acquisition which ultimately improves an employee’s performance. We all agree that improving employee and organizational performance is the end goal of all learning.
Brandon Hall Group worked with Smartchoice Preferred Provider Realizeit to develop a research brief that analyzes how personalized learning delivers the adaptability and agility organizations require to build skills for today and for the future.
We are undertaking a study to identify the factors that impact developing personalized learning by probing into the characteristics of learners and their environments. Stay tuned for a review of the findings of this study and the insights generated from it!
