According to research, 70%-80% of people learn more from informal on-the job training rather than formal learning. In this podcast, Ben Chai, editor of Learning Technologies magazine and Charles Jennings, former Global Head of Learning for Thomson Reuters talk about how corporations can use this information to budget their learning and development finances effectively and how the learning and development depart should be working with the business.
Over the past 20 years Charles Jennings has led learning, eLearning and collaborative learning initiatives for a number of business organisations, the UK Government and the European Commission. He has particular interest in learning and technologies, and ran online courses across Europe in the early 1980s and now runs a consultancy in the learning and technologies industry.
Charles has had an interesting and varied career initially as a Professor of Electronic Communications at Southampton Business School, UK before joining Network Knowledge Architects, Online Courseware Factory, Director of Strategic Technology for Dow Jones Markets and then Global Head of Learning for Thomson Reuters.
