Professionals in learning and development are valuable assets to any organization. However, it is not an easy job because L&D professionals work with any organization's human resources and are responsible for shaping its professional capabilities for the future.
Fremont, CA: The learning and development industry, like any other fiercely competitive industry, faces its fair share of challenges. The following are ten of the most serious challenges:

Dealing with such unwelcome changes and coping with these constraints can impair the performance of L&D professionals. However, they try to work around such issues by looking for other options.
Employee engagement and motivation
L&D professionals must pay close attention to every detail, whether the learners' needs and professional requirements or their interests and proficiency levels. It is also critical to use the right software for executing and managing the learning program.
