How Can You Make Better Decisions about Learning & Development in Your Organization?

In today's talent economy, it’s more important than ever to evaluate investments in talent and use HR analytics to inform business decisions relating to attracting, developing and retaining employees.

Available from 3rd September, Learning Analytics helps learning and development (L&D) and other HR professionals, as well as CEOs and CFOs, work with learning analytics at an advanced level to calculate the return on investment and understand how L&D can be improved to enhance performance and gain a competitive advantage.
