This is how to make digital work for L&D to equip retail workers with all they need, as they need it, in a way that shapes how they think and act on-the-job.
It’s a well trodden path… A new L&D function is born – or a new custodian arrives into an existing function – and a review is undertaken of ‘what learning is required’. Induction is developed. […]
Don’t buy an LMS thinking it will be ‘the answer’. Workers don’t need it and they don’t need content. They need help with their work and career-related goals.
The point of L&D is to affect performance, from technical and core skills, transitions and change. But somewhere along the line we got stuck running courses.
