SAP’s flagship event, SAPPHIRE NOW, returns this year as a virtual experience for sharing perspectives, innovation and inspiration for planning, navigating and achieving business success. Among the many topics of discussion, we’ll be exploring how continuous learning endures as a critical element in realizing objectives along a business’ journey to becoming an intelligent enterprise.
In PwC’s 23rd Annual Global CEO Survey, CEOs confirmed the business impact of prioritizing learning—the survey found that organizations with advanced upskilling programs saw 43% higher workforce productivity; 37% greater business growth; 51% greater innovation and accelerated digital transformation; and 35% reduction in skill gaps and mismatches. The LinkedIn Learning 2020 Workplace Learning report also indicated that investments in learning and development are increasing, with nearly two thirds of talent developers planning to spend 57% more on online learning programs globally year over year.
Read on to see how you can learn more about why continuous training and enablement matters across solutions and products at these SAPPHIRE NOW sessions.
