Learning To Growth: The Strategy to Reboot Learning Outcomes

In an exclusive fireside chat discussion, leaders share insights on the new learning agenda, which must balance the growth agenda and ensure learning outcomes amid changing workplace expectations.

As companies embark on the journey to build a skill-first organization, success is no longer solely defined by traditional learning outcomes metrics. 

Companies need to reexamine their learning strategies in light of changing business priorities. With the rise of AI, companies are looking for ways to boost growth. They also need to understand the many factors that increase learning – flexibility, learner empowerment, measures for continuous improvement, and a cohesive learning environment.  In fact, they need to go above and beyond in today's competitive talent landscape.

To better understand today's workplace context, People Matters and Skillsoft hosted a fireside chat with business leaders  Mark Onisk, Chief Content Officer at Skillsoft, and Leena Rinne, VP, Coaching Solutions at Skillsoft, on the theme Learning for Growth: The Strategy to Reboot Learning Outcomes. This session was moderated by Ester Martinez, CEO and Editor-in-Chief of People Matters. 

Watch the complete conversation to understand how to: 

  1. Adopt a skills-first approach: How can organizations transition from traditional job role approaches to skills-first approaches? Acknowledging these challenges and seeking expert help is crucial.

  2. Connect skills to opportunities: Successful organizations connect learning and skill development to career opportunities. This involves progressive views on the talent lifecycle and rethinking education and experience requirements. How do you do this well?

  3. Design holistic skill profiles for comprehensive development: Organizations should develop complete skill profiles that integrate technical skills, leadership skills, and compliance. This comprehensive view helps achieve long-term value for all stakeholders. How do you accomplish this effectively?

  4. Personalize learning using AI's support: AI can enhance the personalization of learning experiences, especially for softer skills like leadership. Leaders share how AI's interactive conversational simulators provide a safe space for practicing behaviours.

  5. Shift focus from utilization metrics to skill metrics: Learning leaders should focus less on usage statistics and more on the value of skills generated. Emphasizing skill acquisition and career mobility over traditional adoption metrics can drive more meaningful outcomes. 

Ultimately, cultivating a culture that prioritizes growth and learning is essential. Leaders should support and commit to this culture, ensuring their teams have dedicated time for learning and development.
