Eudemonia It's About Time: Developing Women for Business Leadership More Info Download

It's About Time: Developing Women for Business Leadership

Time management is particularly important for women to succeed in business because women already have more absolute, if self-imposed, demands on their time. This is true both inside and outside of the workplace. Women are also less likely to consider timeline trajectories in planning their careers and career development. Neither do they typically have "extra" time to accept additional assignments that traditionally have helped workers ascend the corporate ladder. In this paper, research firm Eudemonia illustrates how a time-bound and time-sensitive approach to developing women for business leadership positions can be a critical enabler of success.

EMEA 5 Tips to Rescue Your Workforce from the Digital Skills Gap with Xavier Sillon More Info Register

A key challenge facing organisations is that their training efforts are not aligned with the digital era. Most companies have yet to realise that their workers need now, more than ever, to adapt their digital skills to these rapid changes. In Europe, 47% of the workforce do not feel confident with their digital skills. The skills gap, accompanied by the fact that learners are changing their own behaviour, means L&D teams need to embrace a new era of online training: open to everyone, cloud-based, fully localised, and always up-to-date.
