As an Ambassador of Towards Maturity we're keen to support and promote the great work they do and this is a wonderful initiative to inspire and support HR / L&D professionals make an IMPACT
This is a year year-long campaign to provide practical insights and resources to help HR / L&D professionals demonstrate the impact of their work.
Despite the fact nine out of ten learning professionals are looking to transform learning culture and improve business agility, productivity and employee engagement, fewer than three in ten are making significant progress, according to the 2015 Towards Maturity Industry Benchmark Report.
This is why 2016 is the year for HR teams to turn aspiration into action, according to Laura Overton, founder and CEO of Towards Maturity.
Business and HR / L&D leaders are craving tangible, positive results and want to see the impact learning can have on business outcomes and individual performance Overton says.
Year after year, Towards Maturity research has shown that HR professionals want to demonstrate how their initiatives can drive business performance. But the latest Industry Benchmark Report, Embracing Change, shows that turning this desire into quantifiable results remains a huge challenge. This is why Towards Maturity is starting 2016 with a focus on helping HR & L&D demonstrate impact.
In the coming months, Towards Maturity is contributing to a series of events that will bring practical guidance sourced from research on the world's top performing teams. They are:
- Connecting with business
- Engaging your customers
- Embracing change
- Prioritising actions
Overton, who was recently named the number one e-learning influencer in the UK for the second year running in the seventh, annual, Top Ten E-learning Movers and Shakers list, adds: “With our global research base and insights from top performing teams, Towards Maturity is looking forward to helping HR / L&D professionals turn 2016 into the year that they started to demonstrate the impact of learning; the year they Made It Happen.”
The 'Make It Happen' campaign can be followed through Towards Maturity’s account on Twitter @TowardsMaturity or using the hashtag #MakeItHappen.
