For the first time since Offbeat was launched, we invited people to take over.

In the transformed pandemic world, there is an even greater need for aligning learning to the desired performance outcomes. L&D teams should evolve beyond request intake and begin to create evidence-based ecosystems that can thrive with agility. In most organizations, a business operations team requests the Learning and Development department to create content to meet […]
The beginnings 8 years ago, when I started working as a Learning and Development (L&D) professional I’ve entered the world of many relations.
