Reaching the Blue Collar Workforce: How Polaris Develops Talent in 2019

Date: Tuesday, November 19, 2019

Time: 2:00 PM ET

Duration: 60-minutes

Traditional L&D isn’t obsolete, but it has become outdated. That’s why we collected data from nearly 800 workers, managers, and leaders from around the globe to gain some insights into where L&D and talent leaders can be more effective. The survey says…..L&D is falling short for the modern workforce. In fact, our respondents gave their employers an overall Net Promoter Score of -25 on their learning and development strategies. But many business leaders know this already. What they don’t know is how to fix it. The good news is that employees still love learning and they’re looking for organizational guidance. By honing in on the data and insights that impact how people — and companies — learn, you can make smarter investments in your most valuable assets: the skills of your people. Lucky for you, this event also includes a quick case study from Booking.com on how they are making this data come to life in their organization.

Register for this webinar to learn:

  • The difference between learning and acquiring new skills
  • How to apply hard metrics to your L&D strategy
  • How to align your employees’ learning goals with those of your larger company
  • How Polaris is putting the insights from the research to work at their organization
