Why not all employees are equally skilled at learning—and why that needs to change
Techniques you can use to make learning work for everyone
How learning can help you prioritize long-term growth
The one way to cultivate innovation and engage top performers
Not all employees are equally skilled at learning. Some can’t walk around the block without gaining new professional skills, whereas others seem to resist every attempt to reach them. At organizations that provide outdated, ineffective training, weak learners aren’t getting anything at all and elite learners are fed up with poor development opportunities.
This status quo isn’t working for anyone, but it’s about to get a lot worse for companies. Today's improving economy means that disengaged top performers will be able to leave easily. Worse, it’ll be extremely hard to fill their open positions with millennial talent. Instead of training your top learners to leave, develop them to stay.
Organizations are finding that their workers simply do not have the critical digital skills they need to catch up, keep up and thrive in today’s digital economy. By laying out a competency model you can identify the capabilities of a more skilled and digitally fluent workforce.
