Accommodating the many different learning needs of a multigenerational workforce can be a tall order. Add in the rapidly expanding menu of technology choices available, and determining the best course of action quickly becomes even more challenging.

First, foremost and foundational to success is identifying the best practices to frame your blended learning strategy. Doing so requires consulting with stakeholders across the enterprise to determine the contributing factors to success and connecting with learners to recognize the specific challenges they face.

Join us for this interactive roundtable webinar as we talk with learning and development practitioners to address the changing world of work and share what it takes to create a recipe for success from the many different learning ingredients available.

This panel of experts will discuss:

  • Generational differences (or the lack thereof) when it comes to learning style.
  • Emerging technology and critical decision points for creating the right blend.
  • Perfecting the balance between standardization and customization.
  • Taking a consistent change management approach throughout the process.
  • Positioning learning and framing the value for the learners.
