8:15 AM Moving From a Traditional Training Function to a State-of-the-Art, Employee Centric Learning Platform

Technological innovation and globalization are simultaneously creating big opportunities and posing significant challenges for the financial industry. As innovation shifts from financial product engineering to financial transaction technology, banks are facing steep competition from technology companies.
Similarly, credit ratings agencies are increasingly competing against big data firms in the production of ratings.

As S&P Global Ratings transforms into a 21st century digital powerhouse, the production of high quality ratings still requires the ability of people to develop robust criteria, synthesize vast amounts of data and use their judgment to generate unique insights that increase transparency and drive growth in the global financial markets. S&P Global Ratings has articulated a strategic goal of developing a learning organization in order to meet the challenges of the future. To do this, they have begun a complete overhaul of their learning environment to accelerate employee learning and growth. During this session, attendees will hear how S&P is transforming their L&D platform.
 Move from a traditional training function to a state-of-the-art, employee centric learning platform
 Gain buy-in from senior leaders along the journey
 Map the development of a new learning platform
