The HR function has traditionally deprioritised itself in terms of the learning investment - the shoemaker’s children always go barefoot I believe the saying goes. We at Vodafone have also been going proudly barefoot until now. We partnered with the Josh Bersin Academy because we believe that the future focused, research based content coupled with the cutting edge learning experience platform will inspire our HR function to learn a lot and acquire the skills for the future of work
