Overview

Now more than ever, L&D professionals must be an integral part of an organisation’s digital transformation, providing learning support which will help employees use new technology.

It’s easy to overlook the challenges employees’ face when they must adapt to the changes in their roles brought about by new technology. Too often organisations focus on the technology itself, without giving enough thought to the impact on the people affected by it.
