Solving Challenges with Personalized Learning

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.

The Answer to Upskilling and Reskilling the Workforce — Personalized Learning at Scale

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.

Driving Learner Engagement in the Hybrid Workplace

L&D must establish itself as a guiding light in unfamiliar waters. This is critical as organizations see an increased demand for upskilling and reskilling to improve internal talent mobility — especially since just more than one-third of companies believe they are prepared to develop the skills they will need in the future. Business is moving too fast and the workforce is too busy, distracted and now geographically dispersed for traditional training models to be completely effective.

Injecting Learning into the Organization’s Cultural DNA

In the process of reexamining their approach to learning and development, companies have been looking at their strategies, technologies, and processes to uncover ways to better develop the workforce and close skills gaps. What really needs to happen, though, is for the organizations themselves to make a shift, developing and sustaining a culture of continuous learning.

Companies Need to Completely Rethink Approach to Learning

As organizations face unprecedented change and volatility, the need to quickly and effectively reskill and upskill their workforce to meet new demands has dramatically increased. However, most companies remain challenged by just how to accomplish this. Brandon Hall Group Research found that only half of companies believe their learning approach is positioning them to meet future work requirements.
