“The world of work, as we know it, has undergone a paradigm shift since the global pandemic disrupted our lens to the workplace, the workforce and everything in between. In a matter of a few days, organizations transformed digitally, transitioning their working, doing and learning into a virtual avatar. It’s the latter that became a common thread amongst functions and BUs, CXOs and entry-level employees, industries and geographies as companies embraced and embedded digital Learning and Development (L&D) into their employee capability development and skilling interventions.” shares Amit Gautam ahead of the roundtable discussion.

Here are some of the topics that will be covered during the discussion:

• Paradigm shift for L&D
• Learning consumption and design: A fresh start
• Building learning resilience &adoption
• The changing role of L&D function

“If anything, the last 8 months have just allowed L&D to scratch the surface of employee training. It’s the coming years that will set the tone for learning design and consumption. It will nudge HR and L&D professionals to evolve into true learning partners.” says Amit.
