Spotify is great, isn’t it?
Every day we’ll get a “Made for you” playlist, with some new songs thrown at us based on what we tend to listen to.
That’s why Spotify is the largest subscription music streaming service… because the content they provide is personalised to us.
Personalised content = more engagement
So, why stop at music?
Wouldn’t it be boring if we turned up to work, completed the same mandatory training as everyone else, and didn’t actually learn things that helped our careers?
If you’re thinking that’s exactly what L&D is in my workplace, prepare to lose some of your best people, quickly.
Not only does it show a lack of investment in employees’ career progression, it also gives your people absolutely no motivation to learn and perform at their best.
A standard – or even enhanced – salary isn’t enough for the workforce anymore.
The ability to learn and grow at work is almost twice as important to workers as getting a pay increase.
2 in 5 UK workers will look for another job in the next 12 months. Why? To learn more and progress their career. And aren’t those ambitious types the ones you want to hang on to?
That’s why every employee should have a personalised learning journey.
We get it: that instant fear of “a personal L&D strategy for each employee?! I barely have enough time to do everything else as it is!” – it sounds overwhelming.
But when you can rely on a robust LMS to integrate with a performance management system, you don’t need to worry.
Learn and Perform, our very own HR dream duo, work together to ensure employees control their own development.
(With managerial supervision, of course!)
Self-directed learning will be an expectation
You need to act now and prepare. This means investing in technology that supports self-directed learning and development.
94% of employees would stay at a company longer if it invested in their career.
