It’s time to face the three challenges of learning

What are the most-pressing learning challenges facing organizations today? Lynda Gratton, a professor of management practice at London Business School, ran a workshop with executives from over 40 companies to explore the pressures facing traditional learning models. Gratton identified the following three challenges as the most acute: increased workloads have reduced learning time, hybrid work has increased the complexity of learning, and a tightening labor market has brought skill shortages.

These challenges are tied in part to the emergence of new work models, and many learning leaders worry that remote employees are missing out on informal learning opportunities and that remote work may be negatively impacting how people share knowledge with one another. “Addressing this challenge will require leaders to build a robust learning strategy in a hybrid business environment,” says Gratton.

But even the most robust learning strategy will fail if it doesn’t account for the realities of work life today, namely employees’ increased workloads.
