To profit from workplace learning initiatives, creating a culture of learning should be on top of every organisation’s agenda.

The latest techniques and principles in building a learning environment that brings powerful results will be discussed at Training & Development Asia, the region’s only learning and development conference for HR leaders and learning and development specialists.

“The training and development infrastructure should be able to address the specific needs of an organisation,” said Aditi Sharma Kalra, regional editor of Human Resources magazine.

“At Training & Development Asia, experts in professional development and corporate training will look into the factors that contribute to successful learning outcomes.”

Training & Development Asia 2016 is a two-day regional conference for HR managers and senior learning and development specialists which will take place in Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore in June.

The panel discussion “Ask the experts: Creating a conducive learning environment to enhance employee engagement” will be led by Dona Siti Zawina, manager for talent development & learning at Media Prima, and Chan Hoon Chuah, head of HR at DHL.

They will explain how HR professionals can refine their strategies in building an effective learning environment and how multi-level collaborations with different functions can achieve desired outcomes. The panellists will also share their insights on making L&D an independent function within an organisation instead of being a subset of HR.

Esteemed speakers and corporate learning specialists will demonstrate how to measure the success of L&D programs on the presentation entitled “Maximise your training programs to reduce cost and drive revenue.” The topic covers ways to determine the features that work and those that do not provide any returns as well as strategies in designing an in-house training programme with a target audience.

In her keynote session, Abhilasha Krishnan, head of HR at Japan Tobacco International, will describe the ideal culture of learning and development. She will present techniques on how to establish a clear line of sight between expectations, goals and performance to build a culture that promotes learning and sharing. Her discussion will also include strategies in developing multi-cultural and multi- generational L&D programmes.

For the keynote session entitled “‘Progress starts here’- Charting the way forward in employee Learning & Development,” Training & Development Asia delegates will get a comprehensive look at the imminent culture shift from traditional learning to taking on innovative approaches.

Other areas of workplace learning that will be examined are the future needs and demands for training and development and creation of workplace and employee-driven initiatives for career development.

Among the leading companies represented in past Training & Development Asia conferences were AXA, KPMG, Sanofi, Seagate Technology, Shell, Singapore Telecommunications, Visa and many more. All presenters & panellists, such as Elma Diala-Pangilinan, HR business partner and head for learning and organisational development of Nielsen Company, are director or vice president level HR professionals with regional responsibility.
