The HR Gazette

Businesses can’t afford to put capability building on hold during the pandemic. Whether the effort is reskilling at the business-unit level or a company-wide aspirational transformation, companies can’t just hit the pause button on critical workplace learning.

Digital and virtual learning programs were already on the rise before COVID-19 struck, and, as a result of Covid restrictions, we've seen a big jump in the adoption of e-learning programs.

Beyond tactical steps, there are strategic measures, such as exploring alternative digital learning strategies, that managers can develop during this time of social distancing. And the stronger learning capabilities that emerge will stand as a positive long-term outcome from this current difficult period.

In this HRchat episode, Bill is joined by Alexandra Connell, co-founder of Pluma, the first customizable platform for online and group coaching. 

Pluma’s professional development and online coaching program have helped a variety of big-name brands such as Sephora and Dropbox by pairing employees of all levels 1:1 with a leadership coach. Learn more: pluma.co
