Learning Programs

Continuous learning has emerged as a strategic imperative for winning the escalating competition for talent. BCG offers an arsenal of on-the-job learning, coaching, digital learning, and learning academy approaches for achieving success.

The coronavirus pandemic has forced organizations to evolve at an unprecedented pace and scale, requiring employees to rapidly acquire new skills. In response, companies have had to accelerate capability building nearly overnight. The solution that has emerged: continuous learning opportunities that engage employees in upskilling and reskilling.

Companies and their employees need far more than training sessions and off-site seminars. BCG helps companies forecast which skills and capabilities their business will demand, and which employees need which skills when. We then help clients determine how those skills are best acquired and mastered.

Our customized client learning programs ensure that skills are built on the job, when lessons are best retained and their value best realized. And our learning program consultants help embed continuous learning into corporate culture and build a learning organization—so that all employees value and adopt a learning mindset that will sustain a company’s effectiveness and growth.

Episode 8: Your Brain Is Being Strip-Mined

Cell phones, social media, messaging software, and multitasking are robbing our attention, as our monkey minds jump from one notification to another. Mickey McManus, a BCG senior advisor and leadership coach, explains how these distractions strip our cognitive capacity and even our ability to make ethical decisions. Is this the price of “progress,” or is there something to be done? McManus offers tips for everyone from the board and C-suite to the front line to enable companies and employees to regain control of our cognition.
