What is the true value of Learning and Development for a company and how can Digital Learning Resources enhance the effectiveness and delivery of learning materials?

In this month’s webinar from The HR World and sponsored by Cezanne HR, Grace Meritt-Hall, Learning and Development Manager at Cezanne HR, culture and employee engagement specialist Richard Roberts and Russell Miller, Director of Learning Solutions & Innovation for Executive Education explored current learning solutions available for businesses, discussing how best these resources could be deployed.

With the value of education and training beyond question, the tools now exist to deliver a variety of education initiatives – everything from onboarding training, compliance and role specific skills, together with more broader skills. However, the panel’s discussion demonstrated how a mix of solutions, together with human input and interaction, was the best way to ensure traction and value from learning experiences.

The benefits of Digital Learning Resources undoubtedly lie in the flexibility which can be brought to the provision of training, not just in terms of where and when the individual learns, but also in terms of the subjects and skills on offer. Technology can now offer flexible solutions to match the individual’s training needs and learning preferences, taking into consideration where they are in the organisation. In this way L&D doesn’t just meet the immediate skill needs of an organisation but can offer a more general learning experience for the employee, thereby contributing to hiring and retention.

Technology can also now be used to measure and assess the impact of training, to make it a more personalized experience for employees and thereby meeting their needs in a more accurate and timely way. The webinar is well worth a view whatever your own learning journey might be on the development road.
