Employee expectations regarding organizational learning mirror their experiences in how they consume content outside of work. In a study conducted by CEB of over 90K learners, 77% of employees reported they do what they need to do to learn effectively. 69% of employees regularly seek out new ways of doing their work from their co-workers and 66% of employees expect to learn just-in-time.
Learning and development (L&D) teams are now trying to meet the demands of today’s corporate digital learner who is impatient, tech-savvy, disrupted and on the go. Yet most existing L&D efforts don’t engage this type of learner. Historically the focus has been on redesigning content to make it more enjoyable and engaging by leveraging formats like virtual, and e-learning. But with the wake of the Modern Learner, L&D teams are realizing that making content better doesn’t solve for the demands to make the learning experience effortless, continuous and personalized to each persons’ needs anytime, anywhere.
The point is, L&D in the past has been a one-way street and HR applications have traditionally been designed to place the burden of strategy and execution on HR & L&D. But as I speak to customers who have migrated to modern HCM applications, the secret sauce lies in cultivating a strategy and platform that puts accountability into the workforce, front line managers and leadership. A successful learning platform will empower the entire workforce to produce engaging content, make learning enjoyable and be intelligent enough to know what all users expects to learn next.
