Last year has seen significant amount of change in every gamut of business operations. Learning and Development has seen over a decade worth of transformation in just a year. In 2021, while workforce demands remain agile, organizations continue to take on resilience, adaptability and uncertainty, and focus on these like never before. Employee development is being carried out in the newest of forms to meet the needs of remote, distracted and ambiguous workforce.
Though businesses have learnt to tackle the challenges of the New Normal, this year will be more about shaping the initiatives that happened last year. The role of L&D teams has not changed a bit, rather has transformed into business governors that prepare the workforce for the future. For talent teams, it will be about delivering skills to employees that they need the most to comply with ever-changing business needs.
