Corporate Learning Needs to Step Up its Game and Measure Results

“...most corporate learning strategies have roots in traditional learning approaches. It is critical that new learning departs from these approaches and we increase self-direction for all employees, especially those who are new to the workforce.”

The pace of change demands continual learning. A course here or a course there won't cut it.

Insights from 3 books on the origins and neuroscience of creativity

"The creative impulse, writes Wilson, did not spring into life 10,000 years ago as some suggest, but dates back more than 100,000 years, to the birth of modern humans.

Nearly 3 in 10 employees say their workplace fails to enable productivity. Lack of privacy and too much noise among top complaints.

More worrying is that a third of post-renovation/relocation projects deliver below average productivity. The report point to the need for more attention to post-move behavior modification.

Remote Communications and Technology Still a Challenge

As a staggering 43% of us are working remotely right now we partnered with YouGov to ask 1,543 US workers their reality of working remotely in 2017

Survey points to the need for better remote collaboration solutions:

  • 4 in 10 say an important call has been dropped
  • 4 in 10 remote workers say it's hard to be noticed
  • 4 in 10 say remote workers miss out on culture
  • 3 in 10 have used the wrong version of a document
  • 2 in 5 have misinterpreted the tone of written communication 
  • 2 in 10 have been late to or missed a meeting because it was too complicated to join
  • 1 in 4 say an important video meeting has dropped
  • 1 in 5 have mistakenly replied all to an email
