CERTPOINT Systems™ CEO Ara Ohanian reveals the key characteristics of a new workforce generation at Learning Technologies, 2012 Europe's largest workplace learning conference Wednesday 25 January, 13.15-13.45, London

Ara Ohanian, chief executive officer of CERTPOINT Systems™, one of the world's leading learning management systems providers (LMS), will reveal key insights into a new workforce generation. He will show how companies must adapt to today's learners at Learning Technologies 2012.

Comments Ara Ohanian, "A new type of employee is entering the workplace- changing the way organizations approach learning. The first to use technology daily both at work and play, this generation is accustomed to instant access to information and has very different expectations for learning at work. Initial attempts to structure training for these employees have largely failed – until now."

During the session CERTPOINT Systems', Ara Ohanian will draw on a wide range of real-life examples to illustrate how the Millennial approach to learning is defined by certain characteristics: it is social, non-hierarchical, impatient, willing to learn and share inside and outside the organization. He will show how companies are transforming to exploit the business potential of this new generation of employees.

The Learning Technologies Exhibition and Conference is Europe's leading showcase of technology used for learning at work. Over 5,000 visitors are expected to attend the 2012 conference. Chaired by Donald H Taylor, over fifty of the world's foremost L&D professionals will present sessions at this year's conference, covering the most important and emerging issues in L&D today.

CERTPOINT Systems™ will be exhibiting at stand 7 at Learning Technologies 2012.
