Reduce Churn through Social and Continuous Learning

Did you know that global firms spend 50 times more on recruiting than training? This is one of the reasons, Nick Van Dam contends, that leads to significant churn within the most talented employees... In his book "25 best practices in learning & talent development" he delivers very clearly articulated best practices gleaned throughout the course of his work at Deloitte. He elaborates on how to use learning to build the company brand image for career growth and development.

And, his definition of the Chief Learning Officer as the chief architect of the learning organization that must design learning interventions and solutions that support both continuous individual learning, as well as, organizational learning is right on! Also, his views regarding the role of informal learning and simulation games will prove very useful to the success of the multi generational, multi cultural and always-on enterprise of the 21st century.
