Technological disruption is changing the way we live and work, sometimes in ways we are barely conscious of.
Artificial intelligence, robotics and other emerging technologies will have a major impact on the job market, dramatically altering tasks that are performed by humans. McKinsey and Co. reports that "about 60 per cent of all occupations have at least 30 per cent of activities that are technically automatable."
Training Industry Magazine
First coined in 1956 by John McCarthy, artificial intelligence was described as machines that can perform tasks that are characteristic of human intelligence. In 1959, Arthur Samuel defined AI as "the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed." In 1966, the first AI Chatbot, ELIZA, was "born."
An investment in staff development can be a potent attraction and retention tool. Employees and applicants alike want to grow and advance, which means learning and development are no longer optional; they're a must-have component of the employee value proposition. For businesses large and small, access to massive online learning platforms has made upskilling employees (and even candidates) an attainable goal. Walmart, for example, has found success with a learning program that's both accessible and substantive — and all for, apparently, $1 a day from employees.
How do you know when you need to invest more time and money into your internal training? There can be lots of signs, so it's crucial you know what they are so you know how to spot them and make a move quickly before a real problem develops. We've picked our top ten signs to look out that show your business needs to invest more in internal training for your team members.

E-learning fatigue has plagued corporate environments for the last 30 years. Adaptive learning is transforming the corporate learning environment by: Personalizing learning to combat e-learning fatigue, uncovering and eliminating unconscious incompetence, training up to 50 per cent faster than traditional corporate learning methods.
Traditionally, training, learning and development have been the domain of senior management. Companies have typically been willing to invest in the upskilling of their top team members and then rely on the trickle-down effect to ensure that other staff reap the (secondhand) benefits.
