Staying ahead of the digital curve requires new ways of thinking and doing—it’s as much about mind-set as it is about the latest technology.

It may be time to rethink everything you thought you knew about corporate learning. Companies today are reshaping their learning models to deliver new value to employees and the business, making learning more real-time, on-demand, and embedded in the flow of work. Meriya Dyble, managing director of connected learning, explains how ATB Financial has been creatively reimagining learning in this way—including peer-to-peer learning–to radically personalize the learning experience.

Episode 2: From workforce to driving force

We see the changes organizations are making to adapt to external pressures as they transition to social enterprises, but how are they addressing the inevitable shifts that are occurring within their own company culture? When operating as a social enterprise, financial performance and social purpose go hand in hand. And it’s not only about what companies do outside their four walls, but also what happens inside. Today we’re taking that internal view to explore the role culture plays in the social enterprise. Deb Hicks, chief people and culture officer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, is here to tell us about her organization’s efforts to tackle issues of diversity & inclusion and accessibility as part of a broader cultural transformation.

How can companies successfully foster and maintain positive relationships, not just with customers and employees, but also with local communities, regulators, and other external stakeholders?
