As the COVID-19 outbreak’s unprecedented spread resulted in the sudden imposition of postponement and cancelation of in-person meetings, workplace learning is emerging as one of the earliest and hardest-hit business activities. Wild cards like COVID-19 leave companies with crippled business operations.
Even as businesses move rapidly to put employee safety first, employers can’t afford to put capacity-building on hold. Companies can’t simply push the pause button on critical workplace learning whether the effort is reskilling at the business-unit level or a company-wide aspirational transformation.
While digital learning is certainly not a panacea for corporate training, it has become a necessity at the time being– and often the only option. For countless organisations operating in Southeast Asia, training has now become an issue of striving for business continuity.
By working closely with business unit leaders and the C-suite to identify the most important business objectives, HR Heads and L&D Heads can deliver corporate training that meaningfully moves the needle on employees' knowledge and skills.
In the series of one to one meetings with Rockbird Media, companies Chief Human Resource Officers (CHROs) and Learning and Development (L&D) Heads will benefit from Coursera’s enterprise platform to upskill, reskill and deepskill their talent and invest in lifelong learning.
