Learning & Development function globalization and challenges

Today, Learning and Development (L&D) managers are facing four key challenges:

- Meeting business demand for committed workforce sharing best-in-class practices across countries ;

- Developing a genuine learning culture ;

- Building an effective L&D ecosystem by selecting the right technologies, organization, providers and content ;

- Keeping costs down and demonstrating business returns on training.

The current globalization of business is heightening these challenges more than ever before and driving more companies to internationalize their L&D function. ATD’s 2012 survey on training across borders suggests that at least 50% of companies are in this position.

Cegos conducted in 2015 a qualitative survey in 34 large international companies throughout Europe to gain a better understanding of how companies are meeting L&D challenges amid globalization.

This report explores the main findings from its interviews with HR or L&D managers in those companies. We also considered the experience that Cegos’ teams have acquired through the 200 international training projects they deliver worldwide each year.

The research focus
- Technology
Advances in technology are disrupting the way we do business more than ever. In order to innovate and succeed in a competitive marketplace, leaders and managers need to make the best use of new technologies.

Technology has a big impact on the way we work, but it is important not to lose the human touch.
Organisations that reflect this ethos in their work practises and recruitment / retention drives will be the ultimate winners.

- Strategy
Good planning, clear communication, along with flexibility and agility, help modern organisations stay ahead of the game in an increasingly complex world.

Leaders and managers must keep in touch with their workforce and create an environment that maximises operational efficiencies and productivity.
