Is your training program effective?

We are at the epicentre of transformations both at a personal and organizational level. Organizations are focused on reinventing themselves to adapt and flourish in the new norm. Studies by industry experts like Deloitte, Mercer and Aon Hewitt have  thrown the spotlight on learning and skilling as the main drivers for this transformation.

Deloitte’s recent study states, “​A system that invests not just in workers’ near-term skill needs but also in workers’ long-term resilience can help build long-term organizational resilience in a world where the only constant is change.

According to a recent Mercer Study, “Most companies (85%) expect technological transformation to continue as a primary business disruptor.”

A recent McKinsey article says, “Amid crisis disruption or when preparing for the next normal, quickly delivering practical flexible learning can help shape a business’ recovery profile”.

So, in a nutshell, industry leaders opine that  employee development is crucial to building a resilient organization poised for growth despite changes.  What is needed is the right medium to bring about this transformation.
