Learning and Development Conference 2021

The transformative and evolving role of the learning function

The pace of change is accelerating and the pandemic’s impact on how organisations develop talent has been unprecedented.  COVID-19 has forced the acceleration of digitalization across all business functions, and L&D is no exception. Work from Home (WFH) and Hybrid arrangements have challenged L&D to reimagine how, where, and when learning is delivered. Never before has L & D been such a core, strategic business function.

Leaders are under pressure to upskill and reskill their staff using digital approaches.  New research by DDI shows that 84% of CHROs rate upskilling and reskilling as one of their top three priorities. This requires not only a technology shift, but a culture and mindset shift which has implications on how businesses approach learning, capabilities and skills going forward.  Articulating critical skills for recovery as well as building future skills are top priorities for organisations.  But how can you prepare for a future that few can define?  Talent no longer means the same as it did 10 years ago where many roles, skills and job titles of tomorrow are unknows.  L&D tools, techniques and technology may seem inadequate in the face of profound change in the workforce. L&D teams and CLOs need to be rethinking their strategy through the lenses of digital transformation and disrupt their traditional operational models.  Learning and Development (L&D) teams must urgently accelerate human capital development to align with the future needs of their businesses. Reskilling was critical in bridging gaps in capabilities needed for their companies’ future success.

This virtual event for learning and talent development leaders provides a platform to hear what other organisations have done to pivot and persevere through difficult times, but also to gain insights into strategies, tools and practices that learning leaders are using to build future ready workplaces.
