Employee learning is a key element in nurturing talent and driving organisations forward. That’s why we surveyed over 180 HR and L&D professionals from the U.K. to learn how their organisations are investing in talent, how they measure their impact, and what attitudes different levels in the organisation hold about learning.
Virtual reality is not a futuristic possibility for corporate training. No longer being used exclusively to train in the military, aviation and heavy industries, VR training is being tested and deployed today by a diverse group of organisations from the Royal London Hospital and BT Openreach to McDonald’s and the National Academy for Rail.
We interviewed professionals from companies who are trailblazing VR in corporate training and asked for their advice to help you get started!
Innovation is anything but business as usual. In May, approximately one million employees in the U.K. are impacted by Learning at Work Week, an annual celebration of learning where companies and organisations, large and small, shake up their routine and dedicate a week to developing their staff. We shared some of the most interesting ways U.K. L&D professionals used Learning at Work Week to innovate in their company.

To find out, we spoke to organisations who have been awarded for their apprenticeship strategy and asked them to share best practice in this emerging territory.
Top-performing organisations are five times more likely to have learning cultures, suggesting a culture of learning is a key component of business success.“An organisation’s ability to learn, and translate that learning into action rapidly, is the ultimate competitive advantage,” according to Jack Welch, former chairman and CEO of General Electric. But what does a learning culture look like in action?
Emma Brown, Head of Training and Organisational Development at ZSL, explains how she and her team align workplace learning with organisational goals and report their results with impact.

Proving the Business Impact of Training: Practical Strategies for Measuring and Presenting the ROI of Corporate Learning
Learning professionals know that proving the value of L&D is essential to keeping and increasing the resources at their disposal. According to our survey of L&D departments in the U.K., one of the key differentiators of top performing departments, regardless of industry or size, is their close relationship with senior executives and their commitment to measuring the ROI of corporate learning.
Are you interested in measuring the ROI of training but curious to know how other organisations are doing it? We spoke with Jo Rapley, the People & Culture Manager of BPS World which was a finalist in the HR Excellence Awards for Best L&D Strategy in 2017, to learn how she measures and communicates the business impact of L&D.
