A New Approach To Creating A Learning Culture

Learning & Development (L&D) professionals are currently facing a range of challenges in their organizations including retention planning, succession planning, addressing diverse learning needs, and creating a culture of learning. As a result, finding innovative solutions that address these challenges while balancing the needs of the organization is always top of mind.

Challenge – Retention Planning

Attracting top talent is great, but only half the battle. Now you have to work on getting them to stay with the company long-term. For L&D Professionals, this means having a retention plan to keep these employees both engaged and motivated. According to the Work Institute’s 2018 Retention Report:

In 2018, employers paid around $600 billion in turnover costs. Nearly three-fourths of the turnover we see today could be prevented by employers

Challenge – Succession Planning

As a new generation enters the workforce, and an older one prepares to retire, L&D professionals are constantly planning for the multi-generational transition. Companies who aren’t prepared to fill roles quickly or secure internal knowledge become even more at risk from changes that could potentially stunt the business growth.

Under 40% of HR professionals say their employers are analyzing the impact of workers over 55 leaving their organization in the next decade. Unfilled and unplanned vacancies cost companies about 50 percent more in lost revenue than the salary for the vacated job itself.

Challenge – Addressing Diverse Learning Needs

Every employee is different when it comes to how they like to learn. Some prefer traditional classroom or group based learning, while others prefer to work on their own time and at their own pace. For global companies, there may also be cultural or language barriers that make an impact on the diversity of learning styles. L&D professionals often have difficulty catering to these diverse needs and struggle with designing training programs that work for everyone. Failure to address diverse learning needs can result in disengaged employees and reduced training effectiveness.

There was a 33% increase in coaches with ICF credentials worldwide, reaching 71,000 in 2019, up from 2015.

Challenge – Creating A Culture Of Learning & Coaching

When it comes to creating a culture of learning & coaching in the workplace, L&D professionals often face various roadblocks such as employees’ resistance to change, lack of time, limited resources, inadequate leadership support, and low engagement.

44% of organizations identify employee resistance as a challenge when building a culture of learning and coaching at work.
