Harvard Business Publishing Corporate Learning and Degreed have announced a partnership to help organizations address their most critical talent development and skill gaps through a personalized, learner-driven solution.
The need for a revised e-learning solution for businesses is reflective of a skills shortage in relation to new hires and of the reality that there is less time within firms for hands on training.
According to Harvard Business only 41 percent of employees feel that their managers are able to help them understand the skills they require to move their careers forward and 61 percent, from the survey, said the most helpful guidance to make learning more relevant to their job or career goals would be help in aligning learning to their goals or skill gaps.
This tallies with a recent PwC report which captured a widespread CEO concern relating to a lack of key skills. The general skills-shortage was found to be hindering each organization’s ability to innovate. The effect of this was to cause personnel costs to rise, and consequently impacting their ability to provide an optimal customer experience.
To address this, Harvard Business has developed an update to Harvard ManageMentor® Spark™. This new platform leverages Degreed’s learning platform. Degreed is an education technology company that is engaged in enabling and recognizing professional and lifelong learning and skills. The platform is now complimented with 15,000 learning assets from Harvard Business School and Harvard Business Review.
