Building a Learning Community with Martin Barner (Part 2)

Building a Learning Community with Martin Barner (Part 2)

In part 2 with Martin Barner (Head People & Organization Global Product Development, Sandoz at Novartis), we look at how the movement to a more remote way of working will impact how learning is received.

Martin firstly looks at the reason as to why someone would ‘want to learn’ and once understanding those motivators, starting to align this to purpose.

Martin looks at the improvement in accessibility and scalability for learning organisations before highlighting some of the initiatives that Novartis have rolled out within their global organisation.

Whilst realising that learning on the job will undoubtedly still be prominent, Martin brings focus to how employees may now be absorbing learning in differing ways.

The discussion then moves to how the move to remote working has impacted the talent pool available for organisations. Martin analyses how the role of technology as an enabler has provided enhanced digital experiences and how the improved digital environment has provided opportunities for their workforce.
