Today’s Professional is Hungry for Learning (and Digital)
Did you know that learning a new skill ranked as the number one career goal in 2018?

This is particularly true for millennials due to their increasingly high representation in the workforce. While it’s going to be imperative for your organization to facilitate lifelong learning, it’s also critical to consider the methods in which learning is delivered.
