Eight signs you need to overhaul your approach to workforce transformation
Over the last several years, companies have placed an increasingly greater priority on employee learning and education. Yet, in too many cases the investment is for naught – employees aren’t engaged, they get bored with the work, they run out of relevant content options and more.
This is especially true with digital transformations, where people must learn new business processes and novel ways of working. Too often, companies will implement a new technology, but fail to properly upskill their staff. While they may provide training on specific tools, in many cases a transformation requires employees to use different kinds of skills––such as critical and strategic thinking––and reimagine the way they work. The courses that are offered don’t ultimately solve their pain points, while the learnings don’t improve performance.
The right kind of workforce transformation properly aligns upskilling with a company’s goals and objectives. It should use new types of learning options––from video to audio and everything in between––and offer engaging function-specific education that staff can use to do their best in their current, and future, roles.
