Economists distinguish between two economic models—push and pull—that offer insights into organizational learning. In a push economy, supply exceeds demand, whereas a pull economy indicates high demand for scarce resources. In most organizations, talent development resembles a push economy: Training is pushed out to employees, but there is relatively little uptake. However, a true continuous learning culture is more akin to a pull economy: Employees are motivated to pull learning from their organization and demand high-quality experiences.

For world-weary talent development leaders, creating a pull learning economy may seem unattainable. But it’s easier than you think. Join this webinar to learn how to create a continuous learning culture within your organization by aligning typical talent management and development activities with a seamless, integrated talent ecosystem.

During this webinar, you will:

  • Classify your learning culture as push or pull.
  • Learn research-based underpinnings of a true continuous learning culture.
  • Unpack the eight components of an integrated talent ecosystem.
  • Review a case study of an organization that successfully implemented an integrated talent ecosystem.
  • Discuss how to get started on and avoid common implementation pitfalls.
