There is a real war for talent occurring today. Many companies are already operating with lean staff, due to high attrition rates and not replacing staff, not to mention downsizing as a result of a difficult economy. In this kind of environment, focusing on worker retention and cross training to make existing workers more efficient makes a lot of sense. Everyone is trying to do more with less, and to help them achieve this goal, organizations are leaning in to their learning and development programs to help them fill that gap.
