Dealing with the impacts of a global pandemic is likely something no HR leader expects to experience during their career.
However, for today’s professionals, the current crisis has produced some extreme challenges for the function:
from remotely managing employee wellbeing to acting as a center of comms for staff during an uncertain and turbulent time.
One could argue that every function within HR has had an important role to play.
So, what about Learning and Development? Over the course of 2020 (L&D) has also started to evolve significantly.
In particular, L&D has seen a major uptick in virtual and digital learning, with many employers re-thinking their L&D strategies,
so much so that 94% of L&D professionals have reported having to change their L&D strategy in response to the pandemic, according to the Fosway Group,
who also discovered that just five percent of respondents believe their learning strategy, investment, and resourcing will go back to what it was before the pandemic began.
