Inspiring Millennials: The High-Impact Learning Culture

Thursday, November 21, 2013 12:00pm - 1:00pm EST  
Host: Association for Talent Development
By: Lesley Hoare, VP HCM Business Transformation, Oracle

Employees increasingly value a workplace that is agile and nurtures learning. But what, exactly, is a learning culture and why does it matter?

We already know we will have five generations in the workplace of the future and the transformation will be bumpy. On average, one Baby Boomer is retiring every eight seconds. Millennials will represent almost 47 percent of the workforce by 2014 and 75 percent by 2025. The right skills are in short supply and talent pipelines are shrinking. Younger people are getting bigger jobs faster; and they think, learn, and behave differently. To become the kind of employer that attracts and retains both today's and tomorrow's talent, organizations need to create a high-impact learning culture.

Join us to learn:

  • the key elements of a high-impact learning culture
  • common obstacles to creating that culture, and how you can overcome them
  • steps you can take today to start creating the high-impact learning culture you will need for tomorrow.
