The world has changed. Businesses are demanding. New technologies are emerging. The clock is ticking. And the big L&D shift is on. L&D has moved beyond its operational role and is fast transforming into a core, focused, and disciplined strategic business function. Not only is the content and mechanics of learning being transformed, but also what your people learn, when they learn and how they experience it. L&D Innovation & Tech Fest will run alongside HR Innovation & Tech Fest, the fastest growing and most vibrant HR event.

What do The Lego Group, Virgin Orbit and Marley Spoon all have in common? For one thing, they have all recently transformed their People & Culture operations with innovative new ideas, practices and technology.

Secondly, their People leaders shared their stories and lessons learned at HR + L&D Innovation & Tech Fest – DIGITAL. We have collated these case studies and 7 more into an easy-to-read compilation for you.

They cover everything from HR digital transformation to wellbeing, learning strategies, guiding principles and innovative use of cutting-edge technology. Other world-leading brands featured include QBE Insurance, Unilever and Racing and Wagering WA.
