IE has launched the Center for Corporate Learning Innovation, designed to educate human resources and business leaders on the latest insights in learning and leadership development with the aim of developing and retaining top talented professionals and leaders.
The IE Business School community will benefit from the center through cutting edge research and guides in best practices. The center will also create a global community of human resource leaders that leverage IE’s thought-leadership in this important field of study.
Headed by IE Chief Learning Officer, professor and former McKinsey partner Nick Van Dam, the center offers free monthly webinars by human resource and academic leaders, shares articles and books, and provides free assessments for leaders. The center will also inform professionals of IE’s Leadership Development programs.
This year’s series of 12 free webinars kicks off with:
- Ahold Delhaize: Defining Work in the Future, offered by Chief Human Resources Officer Nicholas Brassey (Sept. 23).
- How Google’s Culture Supports Learning & Innovation, given by Senior Learning & Development Manager Lisa Kaufman (Oct. 25).
- Developing Leaders for the 21st Century, taught by Nokia’s Global Head of Leadership Development Joel Casse (Nov. 12).
According to Van Dam, the Fourth Industrial Revolution will require every organization to undertake a digital transformation in order to remain relevant. Recent research from the World Economic Forum, The World Bank, as well as McKinsey, suggests that all employees need to be upskilled or reskilled in order to remain employable in the digital age.
“The center will provide professionals with the latest insights and innovative practices.”
“The center will provide professionals with the latest insights and innovative practices in people development that are invaluable during the digital age,” Van Dam explained.
