ATD 2017 China Summit: New Learning Era
The Premier Event for Cutting-Edge Content and Best Practices
October 26-27, 2017, Shanghai/China
Welcome to the new learning era! Technology continues to influence every aspect of life, from how people learn to how businesses operate. Innovation and change are requirements to stay competitive. Learning is the source of innovation and change. Talent is also changing: In 2020, more than 75 percent of the workforce will be Millennials, and they have learning expectations that must be met if organizations hope to attract the best and brightest employees.
Learning is experiencing revolution. According to the latest ATD State of the Industry report, in 2010 traditional classroom training accounted for 60 percent of total learning hours, but that figure dropped to 51 percent in 2015. At information and software companies, which are often trailblazers in leveraging technologies, less than 40 percent of hours used in 2015 were delivered in this setting. At Kohler, a manufacturing leader with an award-winning talent program, on average employees use only three formal learning hours annually. The majority of an employee’s learning occurs during work activities, rather than in a formal, structured setting.
The new learning era presents new challenges to learning and talent development professionals. To be relevant, talent development efforts must align to business needs and strategies. Operating as a business partner and engaging stakeholders throughout the organization is critically important. In addition, it is critical for professionals to master the latest learning technology and tools.
