As organizations grapple with talent attrition due to the pandemic, HR functions need to invest in the development of their teams.

Learning and Development (L&D) is not only considered critical to ensuring employees have the emerging skills needed to perform their roles efficiently, but is also an effective retention strategy as more workers seek opportunities to develop their careers.

The statistics speak for themselves, with 75% of learners reporting rigorous workplace training programs have a high impact on their chances of staying with an employer and 65% reporting improved productivity.

L&D teams are the bridge between organizational strategy and the professional development of employees. Employers who support organizational change by enabling individuals to develop their skills and abilities are more likely to reap the rewards.

This Personal Today webinar, in collaboration with Emergn, looks at how L&D leaders can help drive performance and efficiency. Editor Rob Moss hosts a panel discussion that includes two case studies.

The first from AstraZeneca looks at how a pharmaceuticals company revamped its performance management to create a new approach focused on coaching-based dialogue that considers individual contribution, impact, and strength-based development.

Our second case study focuses on how custom-marketing business Vistaprint is closing the technical skills gap to drive performance and agility, establishing the right foundations for the future.
