Becoming a Partner to the Business: How Beachbody Built the Business Case for Learning Initiatives

Date: Thursday, May 17, 2018

Time: 2:00 PM EDT

Duration: 60-minutes

We know learning happens across different systems and devices, between people, and in the real world. We also know weaving it all together into a seamless learning experience takes some work: new system functionality with L&D, HR and IT teams working together.

As L&D leaders, how can we effectively convince and then work with other business leads to overcome organizational challenges?

The good news is the financial support is there: 70% of CHROs are investing in technologies to help them move faster (PWC Technology Survey in 2017).

The even better news is Beachbody has been successful in partnering L&D to the business and they will be on our May webinar to show just how they did it.
