Learning as a service (LaaS) delivers a continuous learning channel which is reshaping every aspect of how companies attract and retain the best IT talent. Successful LaaS programs deliver high caliber talent and strategic skills to pave the way for exceptional business outcomes. 50% of today’s workforce is comprised of millennials, with that number growing to 75% by 2025.2 Millennials work, think, consume information and learn differently from past generations. They demand more from digital systems and business processes, and are less forgiving of companies that struggle to be progressive.
The evolving workforce is asking, “How can I continuously learn based on my schedule, my needs and my preferred location?” Many have preferred learning styles or challenging life situations—they may prefer to learn in the evening, or to work from non-traditional sites; they may have time constraints based on family situations; or, they may have physical impairments that make it difficult to attend live training sessions. We are in an inclusive and diverse society where digital learning opens up vast possibilities for all people to develop skills and knowledge—no matter their situation. This is where LaaS and digital learning thrive—convenient and flexible solutions to accommodate your pace, schedule and learning preferences.

To make matters even more challenging, there is an IT talent crunch. The talent crunch is not hypothetical or a false alarm—it is real and it is critical. In a recent study conducted by IDG,3 senior IT leaders confirmed what many hiring managers already know—finding IT talent is challenging. More than 90% of the CIOs, CTOs, and IT managers who responded to the IDG survey say they struggle to fill open IT positions. More than a third of respondents struggle with finding a large enough pool of qualified candidates, and almost half find it difficult to attract and recruit top IT talent from the pool that is available.

In order for struggling organizations to attract, retain and develop IT talent, something must change. Doing nothing can increase attrition of top talent, negatively impact return on technology investment, and eventually influence the ability to meet organization needs—gravely affecting business outcomes and leading to a weak competitive position. The cost of inaction is high—you have competitors who are already taking advantage of subscription-based learning-as-a-service offerings to develop workforce talent and gain a competitive edge.
