The Fourth Industrial Revolution reshapes how we live and work. Consequently, 33 percent of all in-demand skills will be new by 2020. With myTrailhead, organizations can skill up employees at scale with a reinvented and fun approach to learning that is customizable to their brand and personalized for every employee.
“Business leaders recognize that investing in their people and building a deep culture of learning is a key strategy to moving their company forward,” said Sarah Franklin, EVP of Developer Relations and GM of Trailhead, Salesforce.
Shifting to a continuous learning model
The Fourth Industrial Revolution brings an incredible wave of new innovations from artificial intelligence to robotics. With technology changing so rapidly, companies need to look beyond traditional, one-size-fits-all education platforms and seek out new approaches to learning.
In fact, workplace learning is a proven driver of success. Employees who spend more than five hours a week learning are 39 percent more productive; 47 percent less stressed; and 21 percent happier on the job. Yet, a majority of companies lack a culture of learning. This consequently creates a gap between the organization’s need to rapidly embrace new technologies and their employees’ existing skill sets.
Companies need to close this gap to succeed. Additionally, they need to put a focus on learning at every stage of their employees’ career.
