September 20 – Glendale, CA – Insights from a talent development project with a large US metropolitan public works department have highlighted the key learning challenges faced by managers in today’s hybrid workplace.
- In May 2022 when evaluating their confidence in managing hybrid employees, 53% of managers rated their confidence 3 or below on a scale of 1-5, with 5 being high.
- In the same month, 57% of managers rated their knowledge 3 or below, with only 5% achieving the high rating of 5.
This clearly shows that managers needed a different way of learning than a traditional training program. Talogy, a Lifelong Learner Holdings (LLH) business, conducted a pilot program with the large metropolitan public works department. Piloting the new AIM Learning System, which provides a more holistic approach to talent development and is designed to drive lasting behavioral change, managers undertook a blended learning and action-oriented approach.
The results demonstrated the difference that can be made by changing the approach to learning and development. 85% of participants felt that the diverse modes of learning made the experience more engaging and effective. 90% believed that the knowledge and skills learned will directly support them in managing effectively in a hybrid work environment.
Responses from participants after the pilot AIM Learning System program highlighted the improvements in knowledge and confidence.
- In August 2022, 92% of managers rated their confidence on a 4 or 5 scale, an increase of 45% compared to May 2022.
- Equally, 91% of managers rated their knowledge on a 4 or 5 scale, an increase of 48% compared to May 2022.
“The pandemic accelerated the change that was already happening in learning and development. Over the past year, we have focused on making new, innovative enhancements to our AIM Learning System, bringing in team problem-solving challenges that were influenced by new modes of working, an improved learning experience, and active and engaging participation,” says Rebecca Parkerson, Director of Talent Solutions at Talogy.
