Talent. It’s the top priority for many organizations around the world today. Analysts agree: in order to gain competitive advantage L&D professionals must unlock the full potential of talent to drive business outcomes. Enter the learning and development (L&D) profession. Talent activators, enablers, champions. For a L&D professional, employee engagement is a challenge they happily rise to the occasion to solve.
But the L&D industry is complicated, with varying structures, shifting priorities, disruptive technologies and multiple audiences to appease. It’s a lot to keep tabs on, and it’s becoming increasingly more complex as new skills and new ways of learning emerge.
That’s why we’ve garnered insights from 500 L&D professionals across the U.S. and Canada and industry leaders to produce the 2017 Workplace Learning Report. The goal of this report is to uncover the top trends — and top challenges — that L&D professionals are tackling in the workplace. Whether you’re building a L&D program from the ground up, or looking to bring innovation into your current program, this report can help you structure your 2017 plans to be even more impactful for your business and for the employees that make it great.
