It is a well-accepted maxim that the greatest asset of a company is its people. Employees play a critical role in driving organizational growth. The primacy of continual employee growth and development opportunities has been a chief concern for human resource professionals. Not only is continuous growth beneficial for the individual, but also in the best interest of the organization. L&D professionals often stand on opposite ends of the spectrum – the ones who believe that learning and development opportunities should be available to all, and the others who feel that special programs or attention should be accorded to high-potentials of the organization for better returns. It is, therefore, essential for organizations to be future-ready, with a talent pipeline prepared to take on more senior responsibilities and face future challenges, irrespective of their stance on the subject.
