Key takeaways
  • Evolving technology and shifting markets affect both employees and employers, leading to decreased productivity, retention, and revenue.
  • One-off learning solutions are insufficient for bridging skill gaps and preparing for future challenges. Forward-thinking companies need a fresh approach to learning.
  • Lepaya's new capability academies provide customized programs catering to the critical skills required at all organizational levels.
  • The 4 new academies are designed to help enterprises solve workforce challenges by building the critical skills their people need at every level.

    Evolving technology and shifting markets are increasing the pace of change and impacting both employees' and employers’ ability to adapt. Productivity, retention, and revenue are all suffering when employees are not equipped to navigate the future of work.

    Traditional, one-off learning solutions are not enough to close these widening skill gaps, deliver tangible results, and equip talent with the relevant skills to face future challenges. As a result, forward-looking companies need a pivot in their upskilling approach.

    This is why Lepaya is launching its new capability academies that help global enterprises tailor their people’s development to companies' business needs and continuously upskill employees at every career level:

    1. Young talent
    2. Professionals
    3. Leaders
    4. Commercial teams

    Each academy delivers specific learning experiences that can be tailored to each target group and organization's context.
