A recent study - “The Future of Jobs” - from The World Economic Forum (WEF), reveals that over half the global workforce will require significant up-skilling and re-skilling by 2024. This is unsurprising, given the rapid rate of technological and business change. Yet, viewing these findings alongside Harvard Business Publishing’s “2018 State of Leadership Development” report – which found that 80% of both L&D and business leaders believe organisations need more innovation in their approach to talent development.
Employability is key in a fast-changing world. In the workplace, learners are motivated to keep their skills up-to-date so that they don't fall behind. If companies are to retain their best performing employees, it is vital to offer the best learning and development opportunities.
Learning may often take place in a classroom full of people (or an office full of colleagues), but the truth is, it’s personal—especially when it comes to learning a new language. And unfortunately, it hasn’t always been easy for HR and learning and development (L&D) professionals to create unique, customizable experiences for employees.
It’s that time of year again—our annual Speexx Exchange conference, hosted by Laura Overton of Towards Maturity, is right around the corner! This leading industry event on talent management practices brings together learning and development (L&D) practitioners from around the world for a fulfilling day of networking, sharing and learning in Berlin.
