As organizations continue to adopt a digitalized blended learning approach, it is more important than ever to invest and establish a culture of learning in order to be successful. Values, goals and more importantly, employees define a strong corporate culture.
Today’s multigenerational workforce includes employees between the ages of 18-80 years. Some employees are only starting their careers while others are approaching their retirement.
