As the world of work is changing faster than ever, employees and potential talent are seeking out learning and development opportunities to not only keep up, but to stay ahead and be challenged. A recent study by Gartner shows that companies that offer learning and development opportunities have an employee-base which is 66% more engaged; 4.2x more likely to stay with their current company; 8x more likely to be high-performers; and learns skills 25% faster* – which is why The Estée Lauder Companies is pleased to be the first-ever beauty company to partner with LinkedIn Learning.
LinkedIn Learning is one of the leading online learning platforms dedicated to helping individuals and organizations achieve their personal and professional development goals. The platform is available to full-time office employees of The Estée Lauder Companies globally, as well as permanent office employees in Latin America, Europe and the U.K., reinforcing the Company’s deeply-rooted commitment to education and continuous learning.
“We recognize that the world is evolving to be more digital and flexible, and we need to meet our employees where they are, when they want, by offering flexible learning options like LinkedIn Learning,” said Alyson DeMaso, Vice President, Global Learning and Capability Building. “We’re also seeing employees gravitate towards courses in Leadership, Data & Analytics, and Digital Marketing, which reveals that our employees are seeking digital-first focused learnings to address the changing landscape in beauty and tech.”
LinkedIn Learning gives employees access to the most in-demand learning content featuring more than 12,000 engaging courses across business, creative and technical categories. From skills and interests, to what’s trending for your position, to what’s popular with peers, employees can create exciting new pathways to opportunities with LinkedIn Learning’s personalized, on-demand, online learning experience. Courses are accessible through desktop and mobile devices, which allows for flexible and convenient learning.
The Estée Lauder Companies’ top LinkedIn Learning users have viewed between 40 to 100 hours of learning content each. One LinkedIn Learning user, Jennifer Kruman, who was recently appointed Director of Service Management Operations, turns to LinkedIn Learning to further develop her managerial skills as she builds a new team and defines their goals. She says, “One of my favorite recent courses is ‘Transitioning from an Individual Contributor to a Manager,’ which helped me to shift my focus from simply getting the work done to successfully investing the time in developing my mission and identifying the strengths and gaps in skills on my team. I also love that I can watch the videos on my phone or computer, which gives me the flexibility to invest in my development at the times that make the most sense for me.”
To-date, more than 5,800 employees are actively participating in digital learning initiatives on the LinkedIn Learning platform.
