Forward Features 2020

As a site for learning and development professionals, we are mostly concerned with how we can help L&D prepare for the future of work and solve modern workplace challenges.

If an article is fresh, insightful and interesting to our audience, we will consider posting it, regardless of whether it fits into our monthly themes, and especially if it ties in with our overarching theme for 2020, which is...

Business-aligned learning

In our 2019 TrainingZone readership survey, our audience told us that their top challenge is better aligning learning with business performance. To better support our readership with this transition, TrainingZone’s overarching theme for 2020, which will feed into our monthly content hubs, is business-aligned learning.
