Moving up isn’t the only way to achieve successful career development.
By Beverly Kaye and Lindy Williams
Engagement surveys reveal, again and again, that individuals join organizations to pursue career possibilities and they leave organizations if those opportunities don’t materialize.

Organizations need to start grooming top-performing millennials into tomorrow’s leaders.
By Rachel Cubas-Wilkinson
It’s hard to believe but it’s been three years since millennials surpassed Gen-Xers as the largest segment of the workforce. This shift has made a notable impact across the spectrum of employee recruitment, selection, succession planning, and development for leadership roles. As the number of millennials in the workforce rises, baby boomers who still hold many leadership positions are continuing to retire—and there’s a notably smaller cohort of Gen Xers slated to take their place. The result: Millennials may find themselves thrust into leadership and management roles sooner than anticipated.

As the industry has evolved, organizations are beginning to link training to specific business objectives.
By Amy Gurchensky
Over time, there has been a shift in how buyers have leveraged outsourced learning services. The 1990s through the early 2000s has been dubbed the “traditional training” era, which consisted of formal training around assumed needs, with generalized training content that was delivered via instructors in a classroom setting. The objective of outsourcing training during this time was largely focused on cost reduction, which was typically obtained via labor arbitrage. The outsourcing relationship was characterized as very vendor/vendee.

By Christa Elliott

Many will attribute waning attention spans to the tech-heavy upbringing of Generation Y, but the shifting preference for micro-learning over deep focus activities isn’t reserved for the young. It’s a product of the modern world, and it’s happening across the globe.
