The revolution is now: New skill your workforce to catalyze change
In this research partnership between HCI and Cornerstone People Research Lab, we investigate nascent new skilling efforts and patterns of collaboration for skills discovery and the development and delivery of learning programs. Although new skilling is itself new, we’ve found that organizations in which elements of a new-skilling approach are emerging also tend to outperform their peers on a range of talent and business outcomes.
These high-performing organizations engage in practices that recommend six action items for building a new skilling approach to learning and development that can better keep pace with the changing needs and priorities of the organization and its people.
Learn how Cornerstone Development can help your organization facilitate new skilling efforts to improve employee efficacy.
