Opening Keynote: Creating a Purpose-Driven L&D Initiative

The global workforce of today has drastically evolved through never-ending challenges it faces on a daily basis – competitive talent landscape, digital revolution, pay/skill differences, age gaps; all of which are pressing issues that “talent” will always be a company’s most valuable asset. The need for learning and development is paramount in retaining and nurturing talent. So how do L&D practitioners demonstrate and execute initiatives that are valued as an investment? What are the returns and gains of having to invest in such activities? And how do we keep these initiatives sustainable?

Crystal Ball Gazing: L&D Trends of the New Decade

Work has entered a paradigm shift and L&D practitioners are playing catch-up with the new needs of every reworked process involving their employees. And with technology as another catalyst, the L&D landscape has entered a new era of maximizing and executing its schemes.

And so, here’s our take on what L&D practitioners should look out for –

  • Continuous learning as a Plan B
  • Mobile experiences (real-time feedback, adaptive learning, microlearning)
  • Personalized, tailor-made learning
  • Soft and hard skills training, data analysis
  • Millennial engagements
