The truth about the future of work is that it’s unpredictable. As technology, industries, and demographics continue to shift, organizations have found themselves in a position as exciting as it is challenging: What will the future hold, and how do you prepare for the unexpected?
While we can only guess how jobs will evolve in the next five, 10 or 20 years, we do know that everyone needs to keep learning. The key to relevance—as an organization or individual—is agility and elasticity of the mind. As a result, the way we learn at work is changing, too. Compliance training—while still important—is only one piece of the pie when it comes to investing in talent development. Instructor-led trainings and time-intensive courses no longer meet the needs of a mobile, always-on workforce. Learning and development programs as a whole must adapt beyond a “check-the-box” approach and invest in personalized learning experiences.
