Learning and Development: A Precursor to Enhanced Engagement and Performance
Hiring new employees is not the end of the story; it's the beginning. Just as technology, markets, and key competitors change, so must the workforce.
Step one, beyond the obvious commitment to intelligent onboarding, must be a long-term commitment employing and targeting the right learning and development needs that create opportunities for employees as they grow. In other words, employers must provide employees with a path forward to see their careers evolve within the organization. This commitment to creating better and more capable employees who can support changing and increasingly complex organizational objectives is a big win for all concerned. As a result, performance-focused learning can link continuous learning with coaching in ways that will create higher levels of employee engagement and performance.
This webinar will outline some key data relating to Best-in-Class organizations and their learning management practices, including:
- How performance-focused learning can improve engagement and performance
- How HR leadership can align learning with overall organizational goals
- How to utilize learning as a strategic imperative that supports the overall efficacy, capabilities, and ROI of the workforce.
