Leveraging a knowledge and learning ecosystem to keep employees engaged

Capture.JPG

 

It is true, that the average person changes jobs ten to fifteen times during their career. However, would it surprise you to know that in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average tenure of employees went up from 3.5 years back in 1983 to 4.2 in 2016? Similar stats are available for other countries as well.


So why all the panic among companies looking to provide better learning programs as a means to keep employees? It is not so much because the employees are leaving. It is because, with the digital transformation and the fourth industrial revolution, the knowledge and skills required keep changing.With all those changes, the cost of replacing employees is believed to range from tens of thousands of dollars to 1.5 – 2.0 xthe employees annual salary.

Are you Data Literate?!

What is Data Literacy?

Everyone is empowered and has the right to:

  • Access education and tools that enable data literacy.  This means having full confidence to read, work with, analyze and argue data.
  • Access quality data - full source disclosure and accountability
  • Combine, cross-pollinate and interrogate data, algorithms and findings

 

Recent Data Literacy StatsIn a study done in Asia Pacific, Qlik found that that overall 80% found they were data illiterate! Also in the Americas, only 33% of decision business makers are data literate!  As a result, work performance suffers and the success of the business is impacted. To watch the full interview with Julian Quinn, Qlik's Regional Vice President of Asia Pacific visit Videos on Demand - Channel NewsAsia - Channel NewsAsia

 

How can you become Data Literate?

Do Your Job

It’s not just about football – it should be training’s mantra too

Everyone on the team has a job to do, and every one of the coaches needs to help the players learn how to do their job. Although the Patriots did not end up winning the big game this year against the Philadelphia Eagles, we can learn a lot from their motto when it is applied to Education.


As Theodore Levitt once said, “people do not want a quarter-inch drill, they want a quarter inch hole.”This is the basis for a theory created by Clayton Christensen’s called Jobs-to-be-Done.The tenants are that people don't buy products or services. They purchase products (or services) to fulfill a specific job in their lives.For companies to determine what that specific job to be done is, you have to understand the progress the customer is trying to make in a particular circumstance.


This concept is applied to many areas of business, including sales and product development. With all the changes and rapid development of technology during the digital transformation, this concept is important for the education industry.

Data literacy is not only about understanding data, but it's also about telling the right story within the data.

Nowadays, one can scarcely do research in business without hearing about the need to use data, the need to digitally transform their business, and the need to increase data literacy skills. We know that the need for the four data literacy skills is paramount in today’s economy and working environment.


Those skills include the ability to read, work with, analyze, and argue with data. We also know that organizations need to have a culture where the data literacy DNA flows and weaves itself through to bring data and insight to the forefront of decisions. One key piece that may seem like it goes under the radar but is starting to come to the forefront: data storytelling skills. What is data storytelling and how does it fit in with data literacy? Why does it matter? And how can one improve their skills within data storytelling? Throughout this blog post, we will illuminate this skill, and discuss why everyone should learn the art of data storytelling and how it is a key to driving data insight correctly.
