SESSION 1: CLOSING THE GAP IN LEADERSHIP ROLES

Organizations and their people need to address diferently the leadership roles in L&D, facing now a different and changing work landscape with remote teams and a whole new different structure. This calls for embracing a more collaborative style of working, the personalized L&D approach and a cross-team work process. The words of the day are: workflow, autonomy, accountability and transparency

L& D LEADERS NEED TO FOCUS ON BUILDING SKILLS FOR THE FUTURE
• The 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.

A STRATEGIC APPROACH ON RESKILLING AND UPSKILLING
• Upskilling and reskilling efforts can sustain and fuel company growth. L&D must work with business executives to identify current skill gaps, plan for future growth and create training solutions that target those goals.

MANAGING PEOPLE IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING ORGANIZATION
• The new roles of L&D managers emerged once the virtual work highlighted the strengths and also the work points of the working process. Managers need to prove creativity and also a stronger people-oriented skill in order to reach the more than ever – complicated human interactions on the virtual scene.

NEW JOB ROLES
• For L&D, this means ensuring employees have the skills they need to meet the ever-changing needs of the business.
For some organizations, this may mean evaluating which job roles will become permanently remote. Many jobs have changed significantly in the transition to remote work.

15:30 - 16:30

SESSION 2: ADDRESSING THE CHANGING NATURE OF WORK

Most of organizations are now transitioning or fully embraced the virtual work environments and even created a fully operating remote work ecosystem. The shift to more virtual offerings has highlighted even more in 2020 the gaps in IT and other technical skills. This means, that, as part of the process of a changing work perspective, companies and employees need to secure an effective process of upskilling and reskilling al a wider scale.
The World Economic Forum estimates that 50% of employees will need to be reskilled by 2025.

APPLYING NEW WAYS OF LEARNING with SURPRISING OUTCOMES
• Extraordinary times calls for extraordinary people and new approaches. The previous year revealed and pushed towards new ways in reaching the objectives on L&D and leaders of departments faced interesting and revelatory challenges in delivering their ideas and projects at all levels across the companies. The success of their endeavor will be more than ever visible and useful in the years to come.
• PRACTICAL EXAMPLES OF L&D PROGRAMS
• NEW TECH-BASED TOOLS DISCOVERED AND USED IN 2020 IN L&D

PERSONALIZED L&D, ENHANCED AUTONOMOUS LEARNING
• Coaching & mentorship lead to personalization and this is only one of the moving-forwards aspects of L&D processes conducted in all organizations. Also, one of the most important aspect revealed during past year is the need to convince and keep track of employees’ autonomous learning.

COLLABORATIVE WORK BECOME CORE TO BUSINESS SUCCESS
• There has been a growing focus on collaborative work for years, but 2020 highlighted even more the gaps here. Leaders in all departments including L&D need to be fully onboard with employee learning and fit the staff with a customized-set up for L&D. This requires a great adaptation to changes, personalized training and a great deal of people-oriented skills.

ADAPTIVE LEARNING, MICRO-LEARNING, REAL TIME FEEDBACK, PROGRAMS’ WORTH
The constant changes of 2020 highlight how important regular support is to long-term learning results and direct effects. Micro-learning is an up-and coming trend that addresses this bandwidth dearth with small learning units or short term learning activities. Also, in 2021, personalized experiences will be a key focus for many ROI-centered L&D groups.
In 2021, the economic downfall experienced in previous year will show its effects also on L&D programs approach that must prove their efficacy in front of the organizations’ managers and employees.
