Learning and Development plays a vital role in the continued growth, profitability, and overall success of organizations. More than ever, human resources professionals are struggling to recruit and hire suitable candidates for job openings due to increased competition, a lack of qualified candidates, and a lack of the necessary technical or soft skills to perform effectively in the role. Currently, the demand for highly skilled workers exceeds the available talent creating a significant talent shortage. This shortage is requiring organizational leaders to rely on non-traditional and creative ways to lessen the impact of the skills gap and talent shortage on their bottom line. Developing and implementing career development and learning opportunities within the organization is a way to remain competitive while promoting employee engagement, increasing employee retention, and motivating employees to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
