Learning and development directly influence retention. 55% of workers think they can achieve their goals faster by changing companies. However, Microsoft revealed that 76% of people would prefer to stay if there were training opportunities. Average tenure at companies with a strong L&D strategy is around 5 years, compared to 3 years in companies without reskilling opportunities. “Job hopping” is a growing trend as workers prioritise their professional development over company loyalty. People believe their skills will develop faster if they leave their current job.
Employers need to offer ongoing reskilling to existing employees and establish a learning culture in order to lower employee turnover and the costs associated with recruitment. Learning should be a core element of each employee’s tasks.
Training helps increase employee motivation, loyalty and value to the business through a diverse range of skills. Viva Learning brings training into the flow of work so your people can learn when it’s convenient.
Viva Learning exists as a stand alone app as well as integrated into Teams chats. This integrates learning into an employee’s every day and doesn’t feel like a huge undertaking. Once you have the technology, you need a strategy to make sure learning is easy to pick up and relevant to their goals.
