I’ve seen too many business adopt an L&D platform like Udemy or Pluralsight, then disengage further

Just because you provide access to these platforms, it doesn’t mean that people will consume the content, or gain anything of use from them. It turns into a numbers farm without anything beneficial coming away from it (or it adds extra pressure to the learner as they have to do this out-of-hours)

1) Provide curated content to your learners. Work with SMEs to identify the right paths for your teams.
2) Schedule work-groups and calls with multiple people starting the same track. Socialise it
3) Make time for your employees to study during business hours.

If you don’t prioritise the growth of your team, then someone else will

One thing I do is include them in the meetings about the changes that will take place and get their opinion.  I also lay out the pros and cons of the changes and how it will effect us as a team moving forward.
