Reimagining and Reshaping Learning & Development to Reskill and Refresh the Future Workforce

The role of learning and development continues to broaden, with many learning leaders at the forefront to facilitate and support change initiatives in their organizations. In a year of unprecedented change – from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic to the racial and social unrest across the country – leaders have been required to rethink how their businesses operate and find new avenues to reach their goals. The learning and training function has been integral to helping organizations transition to a remote workforce, shift in-person events to a virtual environment, and take safety and compliance training to another level. This influx of change has made it difficult to plan for long-term growth.

As we move forward, we must begin to shift our focus to the future and plan for the next chapter. How can we reimagine Learning & Development to reskill and refresh the future workforce? For L&D executives, this means ensuring employees have the skills they need to meet the ever-changing needs of the business. 2021 (and even well into 2022) is bound to throw up some fresh challenges. From dealing with a remote/hybrid workforce, while also transitioning back to in person settings, to making the most out of the new learning technologies and tools at your disposal, how can you ensure that the content you deliver this year will actually make a difference for the future?

The annual Corporate Learning and Development Institute is the ideal setting to tackle these challenges and questions head on, all while networking, exchanging information and collaborating alongside fellow Learning & Development Leaders from organizations across North America. Taking place September 26-28, 2021 at the Lowes Vanderbilt Hotel in Nashville, TN, Chief Learning Officers, VPs L&D, Talent, Organizational Development and Training, will gather for a series of case studies, panel discussions, and engaging roundtables that will help guide your organization through this era of uncertainty.
