"L&D needs a clearly defined strategy for tangible results" say Acorn Experts

eTradeWire News/10645095
CANBERRA, Australia - eTradeWire -- Learning and development is a systematic process that improves an individual's skills, knowledge and competency. In their latest article, the Acorn subject matter experts are quick to point out that simply having an L&D program is not enough. With 70% of employees feeling like they don't have the mastery of the skills needed for their jobs, it's clear that an L&D strategy needs to be clearly defined – with the aim to build a culture of continuous learning.

One of L&D's primary outcomes is to manage people development in a way that supports other key business priorities. L&D benefits employees by giving them more marketable skills, but it can also benefit organisations by providing a newfound market advantage.

To see tangible improvements in L&D, the experts suggest four steps. These include identifying skills gaps, pinpointing learning objects, designing assessment methods and then evaluating the learning process. These steps help develop a clearly defined strategy.

"Your L&D strategy and people strategy are more alike than you think – in fact, one can't be successful without the other," said Blake Proberts (Co-Founder and Managing Director). "By creating a learning and development initiative that supports the employee lifecycle through recruitment, training and career growth, you can build a more resilient, talented and productive workforce now and in the future."

The real challenge of implementing a new training program is reaping the benefits of it long term. Effective L&D aims to build a culture of continuous learning. This can be achieved by supporting employees' desire to learn, weeding out workplace toxicity and reinforcing new skills.
