When asked, most HR professionals predict that what will matter most over the next few years isn’t employee engagement or necessarily investing heavily in recruiting the best talent; it is actually the role of learning and development to grow their own.
It’s increasingly hard for organisations to recruit and retain good people, which is why it’s more critical than ever to invest in the up skill the talent within.
There is a definite shift away from the ‘war on talent’ where the lion share of investment has been made in recruiting the right talent, to developing learning environments allowing people to grow.
People want to grow and develop in their roles, whether it is a promotion or just making more of a contribution and impact in their current role.
All of which puts more onus on the L&D team, which we predict will elevate the importance of learning and development functions as they are challenged to support the businesses to meet their business goals.
The pace of change is so rapid, to be able to adapt and change at pace is key, and your L&D team need to be ready for the accelerated change.
The introduction of learning and development apprenticeships is the best business opportunity for an organisation to develop the capabilities and future proof its functions and by extension, the development and performance of its employees.
