Organizations with strong learning, talent, and workforce management processes drive business results, according to findings gathered from Skillsoft and SumTotal’s customers and data on 45 million employees. They feature higher revenues, greater employee engagement, reduced staff turnover, higher customer retention . . . and the list goes on. Maturing your learning, talent, and workforce strategy is a business imperative.

Before you can determine how to improve, you need to understand your organization’s current state. Our five-stage benchmarking framework can help you assess your current stage of maturity and develop a plan to advance to the next level. In this webcast, you’ll learn:

  • maturity indicators we’ve designed based on observations of thousands of organizations across all sizes, geographies, and industries
  • how to diagnose your organization’s present level of maturity
  • concrete steps to improve learning, talent, and workforce effectiveness, and ultimately, business results
