At HiBob, we believe in taking a people-first approach to every stage of the employee lifecycle, from onboarding to offboarding, and from hire to retire. Over the past two years, the workforce experienced a paradigm shift. People are quitting in droves amid the Great Resignation, and job openings are at an all-time high. For modern companies to excel in today’s talent-driven market, they must adapt to support new work structures and employee expectations that prioritize wellbeing, flexibility, purpose, and professional growth opportunities.
I’m delighted to announce the start of HiBob’s partnership with 360Learning, a collaborative learning SaaS leader designed to give companies the tools they need to create a culture that thrives on learning and development. Incorporating professional growth and upskilling opportunities into your benefits structure and company culture is critical for organizations that want to attract and retain top talent today.
SMBs need L&D to attract top talent
Historically, SMBs haven’t invested heavily in learning and development (L&D) programs or technologies. It’s been a niche benefit of enterprise-sized organizations. Today, mid-sized and even small organizations are starting to invest heavily in L&D for their people. The ROI is substantial, especially as SMBs compete for the world’s top talent as they expand internationally. When companies offer L&D programs, they boost their employer brand, attract top talent, and lower attrition rates.
Today’s professionals demand L&D opportunities
According to a survey shared with HRDive, 45 percent of the workforce reported “they would be more likely to stay with their current employer if they were offered skills training.” Millennials comprise between 30 and 40 percent of today’s global workforce. According to our research, 87 percent of them say they’re more likely to stick with a job or accept a new one if there are opportunities for “career development and personal growth” or “opportunities to learn and grow.”
If companies don’t start offering professional development opportunities, they’ll miss out on some of the best talent out there, and they’ll risk losing the talent they have.
Remote workforces need L&D tech built for dispersed teams
With openings at an all-time high and a historical deficit of talent to fill them, companies worldwide have adopted remote hiring models. Teams are now dispersed and multi-national.
To build team coherency and ensure every team member–wherever they are in the world–aligns with the business’s goals and vision, multi-national companies need asynchronous learning tools that help create unified training and L&D programs for every stage of the employee lifecycle, from onboarding to offboarding.
