DEI Conference

For Learning, Talent and HR Professionals

 

Most organizations understand that DE&I is not just an initiative or program but a strategic endeavor involving cultural change. Yet, 57% of organizations with a strategic plan have had it for two years or less, meaning that for many employers, the shift from programs, initiatives and tactics to strategy is still in its infancy.

Complimentary Webinars on the latest HCM trends and best practices. Participate live or view them on-demand.

With the evolution of immersive learning, how to stay ahead of the trends and understand the impact drives many strategic discussions within organizations. The immersive learning and technology disruption will continue to keep pace with the progression of the modern workforce. The critical question is, how do learning leaders successfully create an inclusive immersive learning strategy at the speed of business?
With all the emphasis on assessing the impact of learning on individuals and businesses over the past few years, only 27% of organizations believe they are proficient, 2023 Brandon Hall Group™ research shows. Part of the problem is that learning ROI is often discussed in the abstract or in terms of measurement models: “Do you use Kirkpatrick or Phillips? Brinkerhoff or Kaufman?” While great learning measurement has common components, success depends largely on tailoring strategy and tactics to specific situations. One size does not fit all.
Please join Michael Rochelle, Brandon Hall Group’s Chief Strategy Officer and Principal Analyst as he moderates a roundtable discussion on how to incorporate Generative AI into the learning organization featuring Graham Glass, CEO and Founder of CYPHER Learning and a team of AI learning experts. The team of experts will tackle questions like: What is Generative AI? How is it applied to learning? And more.
How are your leaders creating an environment where more voices are included? In this talk, we learn how winning organizations creatively engage diverse audiences, unique perspectives, and build a culture where people can better express their thoughts. You’ll leave with unique techniques to engage a wider range of people and ignite the innovative ideas you need.

When it comes to corporate learning, the options and possibilities for sources of learning content are limitless. AI has a role to play in smart content management that goes beyond simple content authoring. Brandon Hall Group research has shown that most learning professionals believe that training content development is the single most likely use case of AI in HR in the short term, however AI can actually provide valuable assistance in choosing the right content for the right learner for the right purpose at the right time. The stakes have never been higher for learning teams. Now is the time to shore up your content management strategy.
Learning and development (L&D) must evolve into a data driven, evidence-based function. For L&D to be considered business-critical to the success of an organization, it must definitively show that learning is moving the needle on performance. Without a solid data and analytics foundation, L&D cannot make this happen. According to Brandon Hall Group research, the ability to measure the effectiveness of learning is the leading challenge for L&D organizations. Organizations need clear visibility into how learning is impacting business performance. Without this visibility, the ROI on learning is suspect and hampers an organization’s ability to properly allocate resources to L&D.
Whether it excites you or intimidates you, there is no turning back! Artificial Intelligence (AI) has revolutionized various industries, and now it’s transforming the eLearning landscape. A recent Brandon Hall Group™ Pulse Survey identified that 65% of organizations believe that accelerating training content development is one of the best use cases for generative AI in HR practices. By leveraging powerful AI tools, organizations can deliver more personalized, interactive, and effective learning solutions. From generating rough drafts of courses to full-blown AI scenes, the possibilities are endless. Join John Blackmon, the CTO and Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer of ELB Learning and Matt Pittman, Principal Analyst at Brandon Hall Group, to see how multiple AI tools across the web can streamline the entire instructional design process.
