Some reflections from a CIPD Manchester branch event - 'Mind the skills gap' L&D Cake Camp - held on 11th August 2020
Success for British organisations means minding, and closing, the gaps laid bare in the CIPD Learning & Skills Report 2020. But, in a crisis like this, learning and development is often the earliest – and hardest – hit organisational activity.
The connections you build in these times of social distancing and home-working can be vital in getting you through this current ordeal. Now is the time to reach out and connect with your peers.
CIPD Manchester Branch Cake Camps for Learning and Development professionals provide the perfect opportunity to meet and discuss common issues with peers. While social distancing may prevent us from meeting over cake and refreshments, in the normal way, we're eager to continue facilitating our group conversations online. Join us on 16 April from 17:30 for our virtual get-together..
Learning is often at the forefront of new thinking in business. It’s also one of the first places where organisations look to make savings and to find business value.
