Industry Academies

Employers are currently facing unprecedented challenges for capacity building.

We understand the pain points in the market right now

The situation has dramatically shifted over the last two years with covid and work from home. Higher education has let industry down to a point as there is little or no employability comprehension taught at Universities, even at Masters level.

To bridge this gap there is a need to maximising learning impact aligned to work focussing on the development of talent that supports other key business functions holistically.

‘Learn and Design’ is the core of  learning and development’s future.

KPI dimensions

The evaluation metric of learner performance feeds into to the suggestion of training as co-ownership between business units and HR. Identifying the right KPIs for learning and development programs is vital to create training that supports the organisation’s core strategy. 

We use four dimensions as assessment of learning outcomes that fold in to the KPI of each participant and overall organisational health. This evaluates the impact of learning and development on the business. 

Employability dimensions

Employability has nine dimensions covering core skills, training and soft power that are expected to evolve. As such, embedding customisable learning to support these dimensions can save executives time in accelerating key talent to the next level.

This should be viewed as a program of co-ownership between business units and HR.
