The Changing Face of Workplace Learning at HRD 2013

The Chaning Face of LearningThe new look City & Guilds Group, which now includes elearning leaders Kineo, will showcase the changing face of workplace learning in London later this month. The Group will demonstrate the very latest technology and how organisations can harness it effectively as part of the CIPD’s annual HRD conference and exhibition on 24 and 25 April 2013.

Kineo and City & Guilds are working together to address the challenges of organisations face when engaging learners and delivering workplace development that makes a difference.

Kineo director Stephen Walsh explains, “It’s a time of real evolution in workplace learning, with increasing pressure on budgets, calls for more informal learning resources, greater use of technology and a shift towards more targeted activities.”

He continues, “It’s not enough to just put people into jobs and provide occasional courses anymore. Vocational training, performance support, leadership development and nurturing talent are all part of the changing mix for employers and their people. We’re excited to show attendees of HRD some of the ways they can tackle these challenges right now – regardless of their organisation’s size or sector.”

HRD 2013 is the first time Kineo and City & Guilds will demonstrate their solutions as part of the expanding City & Guilds Group. The combined experience and portfolios promises an exciting new approach to workplace learning and development.

Kineo are also hosting a session on day two of the event entitled '10 learning technology trends that deliver strategic benefits to leading organisations and the new look City & Guilds Group will be on Stand 283 for the duration of the event.  More detail on what the Group have planned for the event can be found here.
