Lead a learning revolution

#LearningDevelopmentAsia
23-24 September 2020 | Sofitel Damansara, Kuala Lumpur

Lead a learning revolution together as one collective HR

 

It has been proven time and again that providing employees with continuous training is much more cost-effective than disruptive layoffs and hiring. However, training alone will not make the cut. As organisations gear up their workforce agility for the future of work, it has led to a paradigm shift to focus on learning instead. This shift will help empower and inspire your employees to reach their full potential.

To help you unravel the business impact of upskilling, we are bringing you the sixth edition of Learning & Development Asia – the region’s leading two-day conference dedicated to Malaysia’s top L&D strategists and innovative learning technology enablers.

Over two days, you will gain access to the thought processes of the region’s leading HR and L&D leaders through a series of exclusive case study presentations and interactive strategy discussions. Moreover, expect high value networking opportunities with more than 100 of the best HR and L&D professionals!

At #LearningDevelopmentAsia, walk away with transformational L&D concepts that will give you a competitive edge and set your organisation apart as an industry front runner. You will also gain effective and successful ideas that could be the answer to improving your bottom-line business. Be emboldened to optimise your current strategies as you strive for an engaged, agile and productive workforce beyond 2020.

What #LearningDevelopmentAsia will arm you with

“86% of employees agreed that the need to improve L&D in their companies was their biggest challenge.” – Deloitte’s 2019 Global Human Capital Trends report.

“Only 15% of employees worldwide are actively engaged in their jobs, costing an estimated $7 trillion in lost revenue annually; 85% said they struggled to access training in their workplace, with only 16% of employees finding the learning programmes offered by their employers effective.” – Gallup’s 2018 State of the Global Workforce report.

Organisations are suddenly facing the challenge of reskilling and upskilling employees, and closing the technical and soft skills gap at a much quicker pace to prepare employees to be future-ready in this ever-changing business environment.

Moreover, employees that seek personal and professional development have a plan to stay longer with the companies who have built a strong learning culture, and who develop employees for their current and future roles.

Five key takeaways you will get by attending #LearningDevelopmentAsia

1

Retain a high employee retention rate in the market

As much as an organisation assesses an employee, an employee will also assess an organisation. Hear how long-term, past and potential employee ambassadors are crucial in delivering a compelling employer brand for your candidates.

2

Design a high-impact employee L&D plan with purpose

Learn how your peers and senior representatives across industries define what high-impact means, and some of the cross-industry benchmark techniques you can use when designing your L&D plan.

3

Passing the baton to your next generation of leaders

As much as you invest heavily in your L&D programmes, think beyond improving productivity and focus on grooming young leaders, and building a succession planning pipeline for tomorrow.

4

Co-create solutions with market leaders

As you share and discuss your solutions, open your mind to new concepts adopted by other organisations. While you may be used to your norm, this conference will make you think outside of the box.

5

Connect with Malaysia’s passionate L&D community

This is Asia’s most renowned conference dedicated specially to learning and development, offering a targeted platform to network and collaborate with more than 100 C-level executives, senior HR leaders and L&D specialists across industries.

=

Combing through technological disruption

Technology is taking over the world by storm, mimicking how the human brain processes, stores and acts on information. Jobs are being altered or replaced as new roles become more digital, multidisciplinary, and data-driven. Business leaders are now faced with the challenge of recognising and retraining existing talent for new roles.

=

Anchoring learning adoption and engagement

As skills emerge, evolve and expire, L&D plays a critical role in boosting employee skills preparedness. While continuous training is more cost-effective than disruptive layoffs and hiring, the challenge for talent development experts remains – how do you identify where, when and why your L&D brand is not resonating with your learners?

=

Tackling the rise of the alternative workforce

With demographics such as Gen Z, the Millennials, and mobile talent – digitised, social, mobile and self-directed learning opportunities are the buzzwords for increased engagement. How can HR resonate with them by building a learning culture that taps into the potential and preferences of all learners?

=

Achieving business goals through effective teams

In a learning culture, management and HR must work together to define the values, processes and practices that increase performance and competencies. Often at times, however, HR struggles with tapping into the full potential of high-performing individuals to successfully unlock effective teams, especially when there is a lack of planning and commitment from senior and C-suite level management.
