Learning Disrupted - Lessons from the Frontline

80% of the global workforce are frontline employees. They have always been an important part of your business. They’re the face of your brand, and they work directly with your customers and products. The pandemic has reminded us of just how essential these workers are to your organizations and communities. Healthcare workers. Grocery associates. Bank employees. Delivery drivers. They continue to clock in every day so others can stay home and avoid infection. We'll show you how L&D teams around the world have shifted their mindset and reimagined their approach to workplace training so they can focus on what matters most to their employees, customers and communities in the face of unprecedented disruption.

The Journey to Learner Advocacy

Today’s world of adult education has deviated from learner to corporate centricity as speed to market, achieving positive Return on Investment (ROI), bottom line profits and learner completion rates counter balance the need for appropriate strategies that develop skills and knowledge, and are ‘best fit for purpose’.Providing a learners’ voice, through effective advocacy, is critical to ensuring learning strategies are ‘best fit for purpose’ for both individual learners and the achievement of corporate metrics. This presentation links the concept of learner advocacy to the selection of optimal learning strategies using practical examples of research, engagement and networking from Australia’s Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) and personal reflections of your facilitator – Scott Jacovou-Johnson.Participant take-aways include:*Exploring the term ‘optimal’ in a corporate environment.*Understanding the learner advocacy concept and its role in determining optimal learning strategies.*Applying a three-step process for understanding learner needs:01.Knowing Your Learners – conducting research to understand learner demographics.02.Understanding Your Learners – engaging learners to understand how they like to learn.03.Networking with Your Learners – imbedding yourself in the learner’s environment to gain context.*Using learner knowledge to select optimal learning strategies that are also ‘fit for purpose’.*Customising learning strategies to individual needs through practical accommodations.

The Unified Theory of Everything People: Build and retain your 2030 workforce

COVID-19 was the first (and hopefully most significant) disruption of this decade, but it will certainly not be the last. To seize opportunities and overcome challenges presented by the inevitable disruptions that technology, climate change and the tension between globalisation and localisation will bring over the next few years, we must make significant changes to the way we build and retain teams. As L & D professionals, one of your roles in the next few years will be to help your stakeholders understand very specific, key aspects of hiring and retaining a disruption proof workforce.Good enough will not be good enough in the future. We must be agile, flexible, innovative and resilient.This requires a rethink of how we hire and manage people because our current practices were designed for a different age and a different workforce.The Unified Theory of Everything People is a holistic, practical model. It is based on two decades of extensive research and will help organisations and people leaders with practical solutions they can use immediately to build and retain the workforce they will need to survive this decade of disruption.
