- Lack of skilled talent combined with changing learning preferences are challenging Chief Learning Officers in every organization, says Lisa Tenorio in an essay for CLO Media. Part of this means giving employees the tools they can immediately use at work. It's no longer a top-down approach, but rather one that empowers employees, Tenorio adds.
- In order to help employees to 'skill up', she shares a few tips for CLOs to meet employees where they need the most support. Collaborative training programs, self-serve learning content, and a strong learning culture enable employees to take advantage of internal opportunities.
- Making learning fun as well as using micro-learning and adaptive technology to personalize learning are the last components of a successful corporate learning strategy.
Chief Learning Officers everywhere have the great responsibility and opportunity to make learning a central part of their organizations. An employee-central learning strategy empowers employees to want to learn more. The positive energy enabled by a strong training program can improve employee morale and filter down to other aspects of the business such as customer service, employee engagement, retention and talent recruitment.
By providing multi-channel learning to employees and using a more interventional approach, CLOs can enable every individual to find what works for his or her learning style.
