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

The potential to provide a consistent and effective development resource for professionals across our People and Performance function was one of the reasons we were interested in piloting the Josh Bersin Academy. Additionally, as a learning professional, I was impressed with the quality of the learner experience provided by the Academy. The engaging interactions, the innovative way it encourages collaboration and engagement, and the relevant library of quick reference resources all contributed to a high-impact solution.
