Dr James Gazzard, Director of the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education, will lead this online seminar and help us explore the value of work-relevant lifelong learning.
What if you train them and they leave? But what if you don't train them and they stay? [Webinar]
More so now in the post COVID-19 context than ever before, companies of all sizes and all sectors must develop a clear approach to learning and development in the workplace. The firms that get this right will gain a competitive advantage in terms of recruitment, retention, agility and productivity as they attempt to recover and thrive against the backdrop of a global recession.
So many talks on workforce learning focus on 'C-suite' executive development or recruiting graduate talent - but what about the rest of us? This talk will consider its approach from the context of the too often forgotten 'others'; the talented but overlooked administrator who joined as a school leaver; the brilliant technical specialist who is struggling in their first line management role; the burnt out middle manager who is working, parenting and caring; the long-serving and loyal colleague who first entered the workplace in the 1980s.
This talk - aimed at company leaders, HR professionals and workforce developers, workforce learning specialists and anyone interested in reskilling and upskilling - will consider the value of work-relevant lifelong learning to employers and employees and suggest possible thinking tools and frameworks for reconsidering your mindset and approach to meaningful and impactful ' whole workforce' learning.
The talk will be led by Dr Dr James Gazzard, Director of the University of Cambridge Institute of Continuing Education.
