Digital-education program

Suitable for both enterprise deployment and individuals, the program is a highly engaging introduction to digital transformation, delivered in a multi-media style which has been developed by a team of transformation experts and leading academics. 

Lynsey Whitmarsh, Director of Innovation at Hemsley Fraser comments, “The world of L&D is not immune to the impact of digital transformation. Legacy businesses that fail to embrace the change are facing fierce competition from disrupters and start-ups entering the market.

Educating and enabling your workforce to confront the challenge of digital transformation is a ‘must have’ initiative in organizations today. This partnership with DEfactoED offers our clients and partners a straightforward and convenient solution.”

David Knight, Chairman at DEfactoED added, “What it means to be digital is progressing at such a rapid pace and very few people have any structured or formal learning focused on the impact of that digital transformation; this is exactly what our program provides. We’re delighted to be partnering with Hemsley Fraser to provide this new suit of learning.’’

In the whitepaper on ‘Bridging the Digital Talent Gap’, Hemsley Fraser and DEfactoED share some valuable insights on how organizations can accelerate their digital learning by developing their workforce. 

With as many as 70% of companies highlighted as lacking the necessary digital skills that will enable growth in their businesses, the paper emphasizes that organizations need to develop the necessary ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ digital skillsets that will nurture their growth. 

It claims that those ignoring the digital revolution - relying on the ‘proven’ methods of the past - will rapidly fall behind, because they won’t be able to respond quickly or appropriately enough to compete. 

Lynsey adds, “Developing the digital skills of your employees can bring significant improvements in productivity, engagement and customer satisfaction. This is particularly important if you want to unleash innovation and free up people to think differently, so they can respond more effectively to customer needs.”
