How Skills can be Applied to Create Value
Jim Link, Chief Human Resources Officer at the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), shared valuable insights on the field of learning and development. He emphasized the importance of viewing L&D as a means to create value and drive business impact.
Link stressed the need to understand the business deeply and align L&D initiatives with organizational goals and values. He highlighted the transformative power of learning and development, emphasizing its role in fostering a culture of belonging, innovation, and collaboration.
Link also drew inspiration from individuals in small and mid-sized towns across America who, despite limited resources, exhibit resilience and deliver exceptional results. To embark on the journey of building capability, Link encouraged professionals to immerse themselves in understanding the business and its core operations.
By recognizing the broader societal impact of L&D efforts, Link urged organizations to prioritize inclusivity and leverage the transformative potential of a learning culture.
