Learning Clinic

Session Synopsis:

When the world of work changes because the skills required for the business are different, what does a business do? Often the university systems do not keep up with the changing needs of a business; new college graduates lack required skills. Long-term employees may also need to be re-skilled. However, when times get tough, often the Training and Development department is the first to feel the cuts. So a business that was thriving, finds itself without the skillsets required to be successful.

Dr. Hughes will share a case study from a major multi-national corporation. This high-tech company has a substantial number of employees in Asia and around the world. It also has a clear corporate culture of training and development of its employees. The case study will share from personal experience how they trained and developed new employees as well as creating bench strength by developing leaders.

This will be an interactive session that will provide participants the opportunity to reflect on their own organization’s training processes and develop strategies that will improve the impact of training and development.

Learning Clinic

Session Synopsis:

9 out of 10 L&D professionals now believe it is important to integrate learning and work more effectively.

We can no longer ignore the fact that organizations and individuals are expected to respond continually to change, and learning professionals now have a unique opportunity to support them.

In this webinar session delivered by Laura Overton, we will look at research from Towards Maturity with 3000 organizations to explore what we can learning from top learning companies who are successfully integrating learning into the workplace.

Laura will be uncovering the practical implications of this evidence for L&D professionals as we prepare to bridge the gap between learning and work. The session will consider practical ways to respond faster to business change by providing the proof you’ve been waiting for to help win hearts and minds of business stakeholders; to integrate learning and work by introducing missed L&D opportunities and what to do about them; and finally bridging the gap – 6 practical tips from top learning companies.

After this session, interested participants of this session will be invited for the Singapore benchmarking exercise.
