How To Design Learning That Makes a Difference: Event Hosted by Philosophy Alumni Nick Shackleton-Jones

- Export as iCalendar
Location: Warwick Conferences

Join renowned learning and development specialist, Nick Shackleton-Jones, as he explains the importance of delivering a ‘Return on Experience’ through onboarding and training programmes. How to design learning that makes a difference

Workplace culture has changed. The shift toward hybrid working has seen a major shift in how employers engage with their team, from the onboarding process right through to learning and development programmes. On top of this, recent research by PwC suggests that 20% of UK workers expect to leave their current job for a new employer in the next 12 months.

This has resulted in a need for businesses to reset their thinking, designing workplace programmes – and therefore cultures – to focus on experiences. While this is a big challenge facing most organisations, it also serves as an opportunity for learning & development departments. How can programmes change to meet the current needs of today’s workforce? And what role should learning & development play?

In this exclusive event, renowned learning & development specialist, Nick Shackleton-Jones, helps to explain the importance of ‘Return on Experience’ when designing training and onboarding programmes.

In this 50-minute event, Nick Shackleton-Jones will explain:

· Why we struggle to see a return on expectations

· A new model of learning

· Human-centred learning design

· Examples of award-winning onboarding work

Nick Shackleton-Jones has an MA in Philosophy from the University of Warwick and is the CEO and Founder of Shackleton Consulting. Offering leading thinking and proven expertise, Nick has helped organisations measurably improve the performance and experience of their employees through a revolutionary approach to L&D.
