In the year 2022, a new world is emerging. The pandemic’s disruption will no longer be a novelty. Inflationary pressures will create new global challenges. Models of recovery and assistance will evolve as well. Business as we know it will take on a completely new form and outlook.

As businesses find their place in a new world, the role of Learning and Development (L&D) will be given even more context. Professionals will be able to reskill, leverage change, and realize their full potential as industries restructure.

Most employees have had to adapt to constantly changing circumstances and find their footing in new and dynamic situations over the last two years. Keeping track of these changes in the face of a pandemic and having to mitigate new health risks has necessitated novel approaches to setting and meeting milestones at the management level. With so much uncertainty, long-term planning has seemed nearly impossible at times. It’s time to start thinking about your Learning and Development (L&D) strategy. Do you know what your learning goals are for 2022? 

Here’s the checklist every L&D Professionals should know in 2022:

  • Take a survey: Understand what is working and what is not.
  • Conduct a training needs analysis: Ask yourself the why, how and what behind your training.
  • Identify the stakeholders: These people could be the higher management, IT teams, and corporate leaners.
  • Optimize digital learning formats: Create engaging and interactive learning formats.
  • Make sure to find a content provider that regularly supplies you with relevant and up-to-date learning content.
  • Create a two-way communication plan.
  • Motivate by giving rewards: Through gamified and social learning, use rewards to create incentives that motivate your employees.
  • Regularly evaluate your efforts: Think about what target values you want to set and how you can evaluate them at a later   date.
  • Watch learning trends: Keep an eye out for current trends that can help you optimize your companies wide training.
