According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in September 2021, 4.4 million U.S. workers quit their jobs, a record high in over 20 years. This mass quit in the job market has created hiring challenges for companies in a war for talent, leaving millions of jobs unfilled. With the new trend of working from home and having a work-life balance, workers are in search of a job that will grant them the flexibility they need. To navigate this new challenge, employers must ensure that their hybrid work model fosters a continuous learning culture, with an agile and resilient learning and development (L&D) strategy.

During this Training Industry Leader Talk, your host, Bob Basiliere, vice president of sales at Allego, will explain how L&D can overcome these new challenges in the war for talent and impact your organization’s resilience. Bob will provide insight on how to develop a critical L&D strategy to retain your workforce and facilitate a culture built on continuous learning. You will walk away with the insight on how to adapt your L&D initiatives to engage employees, adopt new learning technologies and increase retention in your organization.

This interactive session will provide easy-to-understand insights on:

  • Important lessons L&D professionals have learned from The Great Resignation.
  • How to develop a critical L&D strategy to retain your workforce and facilitate a culture of continuous learning.
  • Best practices to improve employee engagement and retention.
