The True Value of Learning & Development

Learning and Development departments have developed over the past few decades, and there is a growing trend towards in-house training, rather than outsourcing.
So why is L&D “suddenly” so important?

The Value

To those working in Learning and Development, the value of L&D is clear. However, explaining the crucial importance of L&D to other departments can be tasking.

Learning and Development is a lifelong process and, although motivation varies with every individual, organisations can play a big role in helping employees develop into the right direction.

Educating other departments

L&D doesn’t provide instantly tangible results, such as flowcharts or presentations, and their focus is on long-term gains. Because of this, L&D professionals have to make a concerted effort to remind others about the results and benefits of ongoing learning.

It’s important to build good relations with staff. Maintaining so many relationships can be a challenge, but, as L&D professional, it is crucial to build trust by learning as much as possible about the business and its goals by connecting with each department on a regular basis.

No Learning and Development Department?

For organisations without L&D, they often buy in expertise or managers and employees have to identify learning needs and source themselves. While the value of L&D is clear, not every company can afford an in-house L&D department and learning could mean doing it on the job without formalised training.
