Learning journeys that drive change

Everyone keeps talking about new, hybrid ways of working and learning, but what do they actually mean by these terms? The reality is that most organisations don’t really know – they are still figuring it out and that’s fair enough because the world is in a state of flux and uncertainty. Today’s work environment looks very different to yesterday’s work environment.

Challenges facing L&D in 2022

New research from 5App and global learning and development experts, Hemsley Fraser, reveals what will be key concerns for L&D this year.

How can learning platforms enable organisational change?

Change is a funny thing. It happens all the time, but people often resist it, particularly if they feel change is being ‘done to them’. As a result, most workplace change initiatives fail – 70% is the number that is regularly bandied around, potentially originating from research by McKinsey & Company.

How can technology help drive diversity and inclusion?

Technology is a key enabler of diversity and inclusion. Not everyone realises it, but it is. We’ve known it at 5App for a long time. Partly because we understand technology’s potential to bring people together, to enable them to collaborate and communicate and feel engaged with their work and their workplace.

Is your diversity and inclusion strategy fit for purpose?

Everybody’s thinking about diversity and inclusion. So much so that LinkedIn Learning’s 2021 Workplace Learning Report found that D&I was the number one development priority for 77% of L&D professionals.

How to get your content curation strategy right

The first thing to do when planning your content curation strategy is to consider what content curation is, how it applies to your organisation and your learners and what you want it to achieve.

Why your business needs a curated learning platform and how to create one

Content curation really took off in the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic as learning teams went all out to gather and share the resources and tools that employees needed. And on the whole, it worked.

Top Workplace Tech and Learning Trends in 2022

You don’t need a crystal ball to know that 2022 is going to be a busy year for Learning and Development teams. Hybrid working and learning, skills, knowledge sharing and collaboration, tech innovation, recruitment and retention, wellbeing, diversity and inclusion are important issues L&D and business leaders will face this year and through 2023 as well.

Key themes of 2021: Covid-19, hybrid working, D&I, reskilling

In many ways, 2021 has looked a lot like 2020. Covid-19 has continued to dictate how we all live, work and learn: we started the year with a national lockdown, many of us are still working remotely and our physical, emotional and mental wellbeing remain a top priority.

Challenges for D&I in the new hybrid work model

The hybrid work model is here to stay. Nine out of 10 organisations plan to offer a mix of in-house and remote working post pandemic, according to a study by the management consultancy McKinsey. However, only a third have a detailed vision of what this hybrid model will look like and even fewer – one in ten – have begun communicating and piloting their vision.
