There is a new social contract between employers and employees. Employees expect:

  • rapid career growth
  • an engaging workplace
  • self-directed learning.

Millennials have grown up with self-directed learning. They realize that learning leads to higher earnings, and they want to take charge. What does this mean for you? You’d better have systems that give Millennials more of a voice and a choice in their learning journeys through self-direction and empowerment. If you don’t, they’ll go elsewhere.

If your organization is like the 92 percent of respondents in Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 study, your leaders are trying to redesign the organization to increase employee engagement and create a stronger learning culture. This webcast will help you meet those goals. You’ll learn how to:

  • Provide employees with tools that promote rapid career growth.
  • Empower and engage employees with self-directed learning.
