Finding flexible solutions for learning and development in unpredictable times


APRIL 22, 2020

8:30 AM CET

How should we think about organising learning and development activities in companies for the rest of this year? It appears increasingly difficult to predict what the ‘new normal’ will look like. Instead, HR and development professionals now need to find flexible solutions that can be easily adapted to changing and varying conditions.

Join the webinar where new input from research on expertise and development meets experience of global talent development and insights from robust work on how to employ digital methods for increasing F2F learning in the workplace.

The topics of discussion in this webinar include

  • how to plan for learning and development-processes for the Autumn despite not knowing what the restrictions on work and work-related travel will be
  • how still aspire for better learning and engaging managers in supporting members of their teams in self-driven development
  • the unexpected opportunity for pursuing environmentally sustainable solutions in learning and development
