#HowILearn: ManpowerGroup Celebrates First Global "Learnability Week" Promoting the Need for Continuous Skills Development
28 Jun 2017
MILWAUKEE, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) today launches "Learnability Week" to help people develop their skills and remain employable for the long term. Throughout the week, more than 25 ManpowerGroup markets across the globe will host events to help people nurture their learnability – the desire and ability to learn new skills and build long-term employability. Some of the activities include:
- Promoting ManpowerGroup's free web-based Learnability Quotient (LQ)™ digital assessment on social media, enabling millions of people at all stages of their careers to discover their unique learning style.
- Hosting a partnership webinar with Junior AchievementEurope in which ManpowerGroup experts share practical tips for young people to get work ready, not just graduate ready. The webinar will be recorded and shared worldwide.
- Launching a new "Leaders on Learnability" YouTube film series that shares insights from leaders at companies like Facebook, Unilever, PwC and KPMG on how they learn, how they encourage learning in their organizations and why learnability is critical for business success.
ManpowerGroup designed its LQ™ assessment in partnership with Hogan X, the analytics division of Hogan Assessments. The LQ™ assessment helps individuals discover how they learn and enables businesses to better understand the learning styles of their people. As organizations seek to invest and develop their employees, having insight into these metrics will provide guidance on how to best enable performance and make better decisions on how to motivate their workforce.
"When new skills are emerging just as fast as others are becoming obsolete, employability now depends less on what you already know and more on your ability to learn, apply and adapt. Helping people upskill for a fast-changing world of work will be the defining challenge of our time," said Jonas Prising, Chairman & CEO, ManpowerGroup. "Nobody owns the corner on learnability – it has the potential to be a great equalizer. Everyone can get learning-ready and capture the opportunities the Skills Revolution creates. That's why we're celebrating Learnability Week across the globe – helping people discover how they learn so they can stay employable for the long term."
