Why two streams within #LearningDevelopmentAsia?
A study by Hays found that 67 percent of employees believe that their current skills will still be in demand in five years, while only 37 percent of employees are actively enhancing their professional skills, at least one to two hours a week.
Employees today want personal and professional development. These employees perform better and stay longer with companies that have built a strong learning culture, developing employees for their current and future roles.
With heavy budget cuts and the priority for business leaders to keep the business afloat, #LeaningDevelopmentAsia aims to help HR and leaders alike to leverage on L&D functions to elevate the overall business agenda in the most cost-effective way. For 2021, we’re spotlighting two critical topic areas across all industries, including:
Strategic Leadership Reinforcement
The best L&D functions start when employers understand the emerging skill sets, make connections between employees’ own personal interests and organisational skill needs, and connect employees to the proper development experiences.

- Instilling a leadership-driven culture for effective Communities of Practice (CoP).
- Re-positioning coaching strategies with mentorship as a vital element to the business function.

Common challenges L&D professionals face
No matter your HR experience, the global workforce is grappling with what the industrial revolution 4.0 means in terms of the displacement of the workforce. Moreover, the new ways of working has caused disruptions as HR professionals struggle to make this transition with the given tools as they try to achieve the intended learning outcomes.
Learning & Development Asia is here to help you tackle new challenges when it comes to elevating your HR function, including:
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 Millennial, 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 trickle down to employees, departments and the organisation to increase performance and competencies.
Rapidly adjusting to a new reality
The new ways of working is here to stay and organisations are forced to step-up their current learning approaches to enable remote and online delivery. At #LearningDevelopmentAsia, we help HR practitioners outline a straightforward, improved practice approach to help deliver effective online learning.
