Empowering the People Side of Digital Transformation

Many mega forces are re-shaping the way Learning and Development and HR departments creates and delivers its value. Global pandemics, economic instability and geopolitical changes have encouraged businesses to look beyond their traditional boundaries for opportunity and growth. ATD’s research report The Future of Work: Technology, Predictions, and Preparing the Workforce states that only 24% of TD professionals surveyed are optimistic that employees have the skills they need today to succeed in their work.

Across the globe, the rate of digital change is creating a large gap in employee skillsets. Through upskilling and reskilling, companies will empower their employees with new skills and competencies needed to advance their careers and succeed in the future. 

Organizations need to focus on the people part of the digital transformation. It is as important of an ingredient as the technologies, processes and infrastructure needed. A huge part of that is the culture of a business and what it offers in terms of learning and development, not only to drive an organization’s digital maturity but also to demonstrate investment in the future of their employees. Similarly, employee engagement and wellbeing, performance management, diversity and inclusion are no longer just HR practices but business mandates that HR is the custodian of these especially important business drivers.

Recognizing this new age that HR and L&D professionals are operating in, ATD 2021 Asia Pacific Conference is offering even more content, interaction, and engagement platforms, ensuring that we really are the only event you need in your calendar that provides you with the professional development, content, and inspiration you and your team need to thrive in this new digital age.
