Towards Maturity

Supporting L&D to Deliver Local Change Using Global Evidence

London (UK), May 2017 - Workstar joins the Towards Maturity Ambassador Programme to support the changing landscape in Australia. L&D professionals from a diverse range of businesses across the Asia-Pacific region are approaching learning with renewed curiosity and creativity. The latest Towards Maturity report highlights that nine out of ten L&D leaders in APAC are hungry to deliver a culture of learning that supports faster business change, engages staff, and improves performance. However, fewer than two out of ten have yet to achieve the results they seek.

Towards Maturity has been active in the region, working with local partners to understand the challenges that L&D leaders in Australia have. They will be teaming up with their latest Ambassador, Workstar, to conduct a breakfast briefing in Sydney, 21 June, to consider how practical lessons from top-performing L&D leaders around the globe can help Australian leaders deliver against their vision for change.

Jason Cameron, COO of Workstar says, "We are passionate about the new learning culture that organisations are adopting globally, and our team is excited by possibilities that emerging technologies are providing to clients to enhance this new learning landscape.

One of the key reasons for partnering with Towards Maturity is that they are an independent body gathering market intelligence that is key to the success of our industry. We have seen how the information created by the Towards Maturity team has helped numerous organisations, and we are proud to have joined the Ambassador Program."

The breakfast briefing will provide local L&D leaders with evidence that provides a global perspective on how to deliver local change. The discussion will explore insights from 35,000 learners and 5,500 L&D leaders to help understand how staff learn what they need to do their job and how L&D leaders can leverage changing expectations to influence culture.

Laura Overton CEO and Founder of Towards Maturity comments, "Towards Maturity Ambassadors share our value to support the global L&D community with great evidence to help them make smart decisions. We are thrilled to welcome Workstar to our Ambassador programme and to have the opportunity to help Australian L&D leaders connect locally and learn globally."
