Learning & Development: Why Training is Not Enough to Get People Trained to Do Their Job

Spend on training varies across different organisations.  Research from Ebbinghaus in the 1880s to CIPD and Towards Maturity in 2020 tells us that much of this is ineffective and does not have the impact intended.

This 30 minute webinar will explore some practical insights into how we can move employees from a passive state in training to being active in learning interventions.  It will also explore why this is so important, after all the role of learning and development is all about driving organisational performance.
