Recent research from Bersin suggests that workers are overwhelmed and have less time to learn. Specifically, 1% of the typical workweek is all that employees have to focus on training and development. LinkedIn’s 2018 Workplace Learning Report tells us that getting employees to make time for learning is the number one challenge for talent development in 2018. Therefore, learning content and how to effectively and efficiently deploy it to the workforce has triggered considerable debate in the learning industry.
Join Brett Wilson, Director of Thought Leadership & Strategy at Cornerstone, for an interview with Elliott Masie, founder of the Masie Center and chair of the Learning Consortium. During this webinar, we will hear Elliott’s thoughts about learning content challenges and opportunities and hear what learning leaders can do to best position their organizations for success in the future, ultimately answering the question, how will content change the learning landscape?
