How are HR and L&D preparing to meet the global talent challenges? Speexx addresses this question, and offers organizations guidance on improving the business impact of L&D, in its newest whitepaper.

MUNICH (Tuesday, September 29, 2020) - Speexx today announced the availability of its whitepaper entitled "Boosting the Business Impact of Learning: How HR and L&D are preparing to meet the global talent challenges." The whitepaper is available on the Speexx website.

For much of 2020, due to the massive global shift from the traditional office to the "home office," Speexx has seen an increased need from its customers to deliver corporate learning that addresses strategic priorities in these uncertain times. Now, more than ever, employees are seeking information and demanding open communication from HR and senior management. 

"Employees want to know what strategies are in place in order to keep the business going - especially now, when a lot of people are working and learning remotely, and feeling isolated and disconnected because of this," said Armin Hopp, President and Founder at Speexx. "Good communication and leadership support have proven to be vital in times of crisis. In addition to prioritizing proper technology to work and learn flexibly from a remote location and from the office, team leads and HR need to lead with empathy and understanding for individual situations each employee may be facing."

This whitepaper looks the ways in which L&D can contribute to a better employee experience in this new normal. It explores the following topics:

  • Driving soft skills and improving the employee experience

  • The importance of data and open communications

  • Data-driven intelligent learning success measurement

  • Aligning learning and business objectives through new technologies

  • Bringing a sense of security in uncertain times

"A strategic approach to employee experience must combine data with human, soft skills," added Mr. Hopp. "Only when people are able to communicate effectively across teams and borders will HR and L&D be able to demonstrate a measurable business impact of learning."
