Guest:

Dickens Aubourg, Paycom director of client learning

According to Gartner Inc., “the shortage of critical skills and competencies is the most commonly cited issue among HR leaders” in 2020. As organizations across the globe scramble to stay afloat in this new tech-savvy era, leaders have started focusing their attention on workplace learning and development to keep their heads above water.

Are your employees equipped with the critical skills they need so your organization can remain competitive?

In this episode of HR Break Room®, Aubourg joins host Caleb Masters to discuss:

  • how digital transformation affects all industries and makes upskilling and reskilling necessary areas of focus
  • why today’s top talent increasingly weighs learning and development opportunities alongside the more traditional reasons to choose an employer
  • why the right learning management system must be accompanied by an effective strategy to cultivate a culture of workplace learning
  • how to align an organization’s learning and development strategy so that it supports its broader business goals
